Currently playing select theatrical dates around the country (it next opens in Los Angeles and Ithaca, NY on Friday), Agnieszka Smoczynska’s romantic musical/horror/fantasy THE LURE is unlike any mermaid movie ever made. The same goes for its two half-human sisters, Silver (Marta Mazurek) and Golden (Michalina Olszanska). Read on for an exclusive RUE MORGUE chat with Mazurek about her fish-tailed role.
This little mermaid is no Disney character: She hungers for both love and human flesh in THE LURE, which begins its release this week. See an exclusive clip of her bloody activities below.
If you see only one horror/fantasy/romance/musical/mermaid movie this year… But seriously, the achievement of THE LURE is that it manages to meld all those disparate genres together into a movie in which they coexist naturally—where upbeat musical numbers alternate with graphic gore, and it doesn’t seem jarring.
