The Lure is one of the most interesting foreign horror movies in modern times. Although it retells the more gruesome Hans Christian Andersen classic, The Little Mermaid, it also updates the tale with disco-style song and romantic-dramady narrative.
Shedding its sterilized Disney reskin, 2017’s The Lure is at once sexy and disgusting, sad and sadistic. These mermaids are not messing around. They are bloodthirsty sirens and they’ll get what they want at any cost.
With an IMDB rating of 6.3/10 and Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer of 88% and Audience Score of 73%, I give The Lure a 7.0/10.
