These Mermaids Are Out for Flesh in Agnieszka Smoczynska’s ‘The Lure’

Chris Savage

We’re always on the look out for something a little bizarre and verging on the weird and we believe we have found that for you in the form of Agnieszka Smoczynska’s The Lure (Córki Dancingu).  It’s a film which features flesh-hungry mermaids who find their way to shore, in doing so they find fame at a local nightclub with their tantalizing siren songs.

The film looks set to be all kinds of bizarre and we love that, it’s set during the ’80s in Poland. Be sure to check out the NSFW trailer below and let us know what you make of this one?

SynopsisThe Lure concerns a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters who are drawn ashore in an alternate ’80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly aura make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers, but after one sister falls for a human, the bonds of sisterhood become severely tested.

The film stars Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis, and Andrzej Konopka.

IFC Midnight will release the film on VOD and limited theatres beginning this February 1, 2017.

So, is this something you’ll be keeping an eye out for or perhaps you had a chance to witness this one on the festival circuit? Either way, let us know.
