There’s no denying The Lure is unique. I caught it at Fantastic Fest last year and, for the first 45 minutes, was completely entranced. I thought I was potentially watching my favorite movie of the year. But as the film goes along, the story gets incredibly choppy and completely loses all momentum. I left the theater pretty disappointed after the promise of the beginning—but found I was in the minority. Almost everyone at the festival fell head over heels in love with this crazy mermaid musical.


There’s no denying, it’s a fascinating film that’s worth seeing and deciding on for yourself.
