Mermaids take the stage in Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska’s horror musical, a cult classic in the making.

This genre-defying horror-musical mash-up—the bold debut of Polish director AGNIESZKA  SMOCZYNSKA— follows a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters drawn ashore to explore life on land in an alternate 1980s Poland. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly auras make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers in the half-glam, half-decrepit world of Smoczynska’s imagining. The director gives fierce teeth to her viscerally sensual, darkly feminist twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” in which the girls’ bond is tested and their survival threatened after one sister falls for a human. A coming-of-age fairy tale with a catchy synth-fuelled soundtrack, outrageous song-and-dance numbers, and lavishly grimy sets, The Lure explores its themes of emerging female sexuality, exploitation, and the compromises of adulthood with savage energy and originality.

Interesting movie

Total :


Always great to se movies from other country's than the american or Uk made ones. So to see this Polish movie from Smoczyncka as director was the firt encounter in her films. Mostly been watching films from Kieslowski and always liked them to, so i took a chance with this on. It's a musical so therefore it lost little of my attentions, not the biggest fan of tha genre, but will always try to see if some of all the musicals in the movies will stuck with me. But like the story in this, but some flaws and questions always comes up when these girls switch between mermaids and the regular woman and the appearing of it. But still a good movie and i think it's one of them that one must have more than one look at for so much in it sometimes that will make questions. But good movie and if you are a fan of musical and some horror, you must see it.
