Here's the breakdown
7 October 2019 | by AhmadUKreviewSee all my reviews

Reading about the movie on Filmmaker makes me like it more. Otherwise I was confused as to what was happening and why.

I think it's a little ahead of its time in terms of originality. Admirable but a bit ambitious of writer/director Jeffrey Grellman because the average viewer rejects any new or unusual concepts for the comfort of an expected hollywood flick. This film isn't about a sweet or a killer mermaid but an animalistic, strange creature who hangs out with pirates on her down time. I wish they had more budget to elaborate on all of this. The movie felt a little shorter than I would've wanted.

The plot is original. After her tail is cut off she grows legs within months and we later discover she knows sign language. This is a fantasy. Mermaids are not real so there isn't a right or wrong on the matter. I thought it was interesting.

The cast did a great job. I'd like to see more of the mermaid (Alexandra Bokova), who's bold, believable and luring.

There is a ghost (Meghan Kaiser) who becomes friends with the mermaid, moving as both are likable characters you root for.

The Dr (Burt Culver) was solid, subtle and eerie, well played. I appreciate that the characters aren't cliches of a mermaid or ghost or the villain. Nothing is overdone, honest performances.

The girls in the crazy home were diverse, funny and well cast. The nurse (Michell Gallagher) did a fantastic job.

Great indie film, we need more original and diverse stories. Might not be your favorite thing but definitely an above 7 film. Interesting to see what Grellman does with a reasonable budget.
