First Trailer for ‘V/H/S/’ Spin-off ‘Siren’
There are certain things that seem like excellent concepts when you see them in small little bites. Sometimes those concepts can be fleshed out into actual full-fledged films. But sometimes, in doing so, you pull things a little thin.
The first trailer for “V/H/S” spin-off “Siren” is here and I’m worried it might fall into the “stretched to thin” category. If you remember, “Amateur Night” was the short film about a weird harpy lady who winds up going home with a bunch of dude bros and then killing them. In this new take on the story the dude bros come to her. Here’s how the story breaks down:
One week before his big wedding day, Jonah and his groomsmen hit the town for a wild night of club hopping and debauchery. The night soon takes a twisted turn for the worse when the group is invited to the seedy underground club, 50 North 40 West, a home to the sexy side of the supernatural. After Jonah frees a seemingly imprisoned dancer, he soon realizes that the woman he has released is actually a terrifying creature of legend that will stop at nothing to claim her man. Jonah and his groomsmen soon find themselves in a deadly fight for their lives as they run from the fabled predator and the men who are determined to recapture her.
I certainly think the premise is interesting and I did like the short film enough. I’m hoping the final product will be good, but this trailer leaves me with some doubt. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
