SHORT SUMMARY

In 1980s Poland, a pair of mermaid sisters come ashore and join an adult night club as strippers and singers. While one seeks love with humans the other hungers to dine on the human population of the city.



THE BUZZ
"A genre-defying film that blends elements of musicals, horror, romance, and fantasy into a contemporary fairy tale" - AV Club 
"[A] kaleidoscope of color and nightclub sparkle" - Indiewire 
"There’s nothing else like it in the sea" - Variety 
"Everything came together perfectly" - The Horror Section 
"A film of black humor, grungy debauchery, and ravishingly surreal eroticism done with an idiom that blends high camp with unexpected pathos" - Killer Movie Reviews

FULL DESCRIPTION

The true must-see musical of the year is the bloody, bold, and genre-defying sensation The Lure. A pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate '80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land, and indulge their taste for human flesh. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly aura make them overnight sensations at a risque nightclub where debauched glitz and glam put the bonds of sisterhood to the test. Featuring stunning musical numbers and effects, savage sexuality, and an original new-wave soundtrack, The Lure is a twisted take on The Little Mermaid that has been a fan favorite at festivals like Sundance, Fantasia, and Toronto After Dark. Starring Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis.
