The question that dogs you throughout Submerged goes something like this. Is Lindsay (Ella Roberts) grieving from the loss of her parents and allowing that grief to play tricks with her emotional well-being, or is the photographs that she is taking — which show young girls being murdered — real. It’s clever.
The story jumps a bit about in time, with flashbacks used to fill in details. Is there a serial killer on the loose — with a long reach over time — and what secrets does the little town of Willow Point (out near Adelaide … wine country) harbor. Lindsay is our guide to the picturesque landscape, a landscape that belies the danger … how quickly death can come on a pleasant day with no warning.
