Siren is based on the segment 'Amaeteur Night' from V/H/S (2012), which was highly praised by horror fans. With Hannah Fierman reprising her role as Lily from the segment, the film was shot in 18 days and edited in 4 weeks.

Instead of just putting on a great show, we’re going to do that and find the next great comic and the next big music star. That’s what the Apollo is all about.
