Directed by: Sebastian Gutierrez
Starring: Rufus Sewell, Carla Gugino, Jim Piddock, Reno Wilson, Rya Kihlstedt
Synopsis: In the early 1900s, Irish carnies steal a real mermaid and sneak her on board a ship bound for America.
After last week's movie from the Creature Feature series, I wasn't very optimistic about this one. It's actually pretty good though. I liked the plot, I liked the characters, I liked the setting, I liked the acting (Rufus Sewell... mmmmmm), and I liked that most of the nasty stuff took place offscreen. I wish more filmmakers would realize that it's possible to make a horror film without a constant stream of blood and guts.
It's not a great movie but it held my attention from start to finish.Added 12 October 2002 at 3:07 AM
