Wild Eye Releasing's horror take on The Little Mermaid never finds its sea-legs.
With Guillermo del Toro’s aquatic-monster love story THE SHAPE OF WATER in the midst of a successful platform release, and the Polish schoolyard shocker PLAYGROUND seeing U.S. exposure, now is a good time to return to Agnieszka Smoczynska’s mermaid romance/horror/musical THE LURE via its Criterion Blu-ray edition that came out this fall.
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.
Currently playing in New York City and heading to more cities in the coming weeks (see schedule below), THE LURE is one of the most unique and striking genre films of recent years, and an impressive debut for its director, Agnieszka Smoczynska. RUE MORGUE landed an exclusive interview with the Polish filmmaker about her colorful genre-blender.
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.
