Mermaids are not something I think about or use very often. I will admit that after "Splash" came out I wanted to try an underwater campaign, or at least an ocean-based one. But I don't remember actually ever using a mermaid, merman or even a triton in my games.
That all being said I am really looking forward to this new movie "The Lure" described as a Mermaid Horror Musical Comedy. I mean mermaids have to sing right? That is part and parcel with their myths. While Hollywood seems content on remakes and sequels, we have to go abroad for something original.
Here is the "Red Band" trailer.
Pretty weird right?
Looks like it could be a lot of fun too.
It is by brand new director Agnieszka Smoczynska. She has a vision that is certain.
I love hearing about her influences. Glamor amongst poverty. I am looking forward to seeing what else she can do.
Hopefully, I'll be able to add this my October Horror Movie Marathon.
This does give me an idea. What if Kuo-Toa, who were described as living on land once, have a mermaid-like sub-species. Something that is appealing to humans, but used as a lure. Like something out of the movie Dagon. I might have to watch this before October!
