* Double subverted in the first ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984''. Nancy falls asleep in the tub and Freddy's bladed glove pops out of the water, but she wakes up in time for nothing to happen. When she dozes off again, he suddenly drags her under into a huge underwater space that he created with his dream powers, and she almost drowns.

** ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet5TheDreamChild'': Played with as well. Alice is taking a shower when it turns out she's dreaming and the shower cabin starts filling up with water. She jumps out through a portal that just appears, but it's to lead her to something more dangerous.

Taking a bath is risky business, at least in entertainment media. Nine times out of ten, either something happens to interrupt the bath, or you die. This is the latter.

Whether murder or suicide, there may be an ElectrifiedBathtub involved. The PsychoShowerMurderParody is a particularly common example of this trope -- or a subversion, depending on the humor content. A Deadly Bath will very commonly lead directly to BloodIsSquickerInWater. Paranoid characters may feel they CantBatheWithoutAWeapon in anticipation of this trope.

* In ''Film/{{Rattlers}}'', selfsame rattlers come in through the piping. Female victim would have preferred a rubber duck and starts screaming although it doesn't look like she was bitten (unless the snake bit her into...[[FreudWasRight nevermind.]]) and dies a few seconds later. Somewhere, a herpetologist is screaming too.
