On February 1st, IFC will release last year’s Sundance Film Festival hit The Lure on VOD platforms.
The film takes place in Warsaw where a pair of mermaid sisters are adopted into a cabaret. While one seeks love with humans…the other hungers to dine on the human population of the city.
We now have the film’s official trailer that shows just how bizarre Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Smoczynska’s indie production is.
Our very own Fred Topel caught the world premiere early last year:
“There’s a bit of body horror as we see their slimy tails morph into existence, and I’mSilver picks off her scales at one point. There’s even naked lesbian mermaid sex. This movie has everything!
“‘The Lure’ had me at any one of its genres: musical, magical realism or monster movie. That it does all three well is awesome and I hope makes it an easy sell.”
The trailer is right below (including a teaser at the end) and most definitely NSFW:
