Remember the romantic comedy Splash? Tom Hanks falls in love with mermaid Daryl Hannah and they live happily ever after under the sea? It’s a delightful movie, but let’s be honest – it needed a couple of mermaid strippers hungry for human flesh.
Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Smoczynska improves on Ron Howard’s classic with the Feb. 1 VOD release of The Lure. Marta Mazurek and Michalina Olszanska play the mermaid sisters, one looking to fall in love and the other in search of dinner.
