The Lure

This glam-gore horror-musical is the debut film from Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska. Set in an alternate 1980s, the film reimagines Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid" as a new wave tale about two carnivorous mermaid sisters who wash up on shore in Poland and are seduced by the wonders and temptations of life on land. Before long, their tantalizing siren song lands them a job in a seedy striptease cabaret. But the bonds of sisterhood are tested when one gal falls in love and the other craves human flesh (for eating, that is). In Polish with English subtitles. 92 minutes Unrated.
