What do you get when you mix the mischievous nature of mythical mermaids with a modern twist a la 80’s?

The Lure.

This trailer starts off pretty grim, reminiscent of the Odyssey with the captivating mermaids that attracted the sailors to their deaths with their songs. It quickly ripples off into a gleam of fab imagination, one floating in a bleak ocean of an exotic club reality.

There’s tons of glitter, glamour and a pinch of horror, but the musical sing along aspect of the film relieves that dark tension.

Personally, I much prefer European films as they offer a sophisticated glimpse into revisiting the mermaid idea without making it corny and PG, so I wasn’t surprised to learn this was shot in Poland (plus the subtitles gave it away).

Who else is excited to see this movie? Let’s bring a little show girl goth-ness into the mer-world!
