Another Mermaid Movie
1 May 2004 | by potshotkSee all my reviews

The Mermaid Chronicles was an interesting idea, but releasing this on its own under the "She Creature" title probably confused more people than it enticed. This film is about as far from the Corman original as one can get.

Good production values and until the faux-Aliens ending I was quite caught up in it.

But most posters seem to feel that "Splash" was the only other mermaid movie ever made. If you enjoyed this, check out the old Curtis Harrington film, "Night Tide" starring Dennis Hopper. Both films share a creepy quality on a low budget ambiance and both use a carnival sideshow and a "captive" mermaid as central plot devices.
