I agree with that guy from CABIN IN THE WOODS, who wanted to see the merman but was sadly disappointed (until he wasn’t). I think we need more mer-people in Horror as a whole. Yeah, either that or I’m still a toddler in my cerebral development and I can be distracted by shiny things. This article is a perfect example of that. I dig on the poster for MERMAID: LAKE OF THE DEAD. It’s as simple as that. No, I don’t buy books by their covers. But I DO pick books up based on their covers. I may have overlooked the greatest novel written in the last fifty years because it had a lousy cover.
Cut me a little slack, though. That poster is GORGEOUS. In a horrific way, of course. The movie itself is a Russian production, so gods only know when we’ll get to see it here in the States, but yes, I will watch it when it does become available. Because it’s got such an awesome poster. Also, the premise– “An evil Mermaid falls in love with Marina’s fiancé Roman and aims to keep him away from Marina in her Kingdom of Death under water. The Mermaid is a young woman who drowned a few centuries ago. Marina only has one week to overcome her fear of the dark water, to remain human in the deathly fight with the monsters and not to become one herself.”—does sound intriguing.
