6 meters deep. 2 human beings. 1 beast. 0 ways out.
A couple is trapped in a 6-meter deep empty pool. There is no way out and an unexpected predator appears. The Pool is an excellent suspense exercise, with a simple but very effective plot, full of Hitchconian elements as well as some from the Five Characters in Search of an Exit episode of The Twilight Zone and even from the Saw saga.
