Mermaids, Murder, and Music all Converge in The Lure!

If you see only one cannibalistic mermaid musical this year, it should probably be The Lure. This film, the debut from Agnieska Smoczynska, follows two sisters who are mermaids and also cannibals…or vampires? Mer-vamps? Maid-pires? Anyway, their names are Golden and Silver, they sing in a seedy-looking club, and their literal man-eating ways may have to end soon, since one of them has found love with a human!

Click through for the trailer, which may be NSFW depending on where you work.

The Lure is coming to New York this February, and since Janus Films has acquired it and plan a U.S tour, hopefully it will come ashore in a city near you!
