Lillian Crawford (AUTISM through CINEMA podcast, Listen to Lillian, Little White Lies) and Laura Venning(BBC Culture, Little White Lies, Empire Magazine) return to Flixwatcher to review Lillian’s choice The Lure.

The Lure (Daughters of Dancing is its Polish title) is a 2015 Polish horror musical, directed by Agnieszka Smoczyńska. It is a very loose reworking of The Little Mermaid, this version is set in 1980s tells the story of two sirens, Golden and Silver, who emerge from the sea and end up performing in a nightclub with the house band Figs n’ Dates.

The Lure is quite possibly the weirdest film on Netflix. Difficult to describe, it is a dark fairy tale but it is also a glorious musical with some amazing 80s power ballads.

It also proved to be quite polarising – fishy or sexy – depends how where you fall on mermaids?! If you enjoyed other sex-fish fantasy films and fish you’ll definitely find lots to enjoy here. Despite the weirdness The Lure still scores high on recommendability and engagement to give an overall rating of 4.01.
