The Lure (Córki dancingu)

Critics Consensus

The Lure adds a sexually charged, genre-defying twist to well-established mermaid lore, more than overpowering its flaws through sheer variety and wild ambition.

  • A nod to politically correct species reassignment surgery livens the third act, but the film eventually sinks under the weight of its own silly excess.

  • The result is hallucinatory and puzzling, but never anything less than captivating.

  • Too bad the shipwreck of a screenplay can't keep up with the visuals, which are pretty great ...

  • There is no continuity in narrative or character and it's all shot in an elliptical, heavily stylized, gaudily lit (much of it looks like it's shot through an algae-filmed aquarium) collage.

  • A woozily entrancing mash-up, shimmying by itself in the corner of the horror-musical canon and sure to earn quizzically appreciative stares from genre enthusiasts.

    March 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A genre-defying film that blends elements of musicals, horror, romance, and fantasy into a contemporary fairy tale that celebrates the animalistic, the feminine, and the intimate intersections between the two.
