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