    Polecam Underwater head

    Picture the scene - A dead girl in a swimsuit floats on the surface of a brightly lit swimming pool,  blood washing around her  cut wrists.

The camera lifts and spins as he realizes she is dead and screams his anguish to the ceiling. End of scene with camera looking straight down on the bloody pair.
