Four friends, Wendy (Courtney Oliviér), Ari (Diana Rose), Violet (Elizabeth Trieu) and Fay (Zoe Graham), go on a vacation together to a lovely resort by a river - but really they're all running from something or other. Now the place isn't what it was lined out to be, as after a violent death, the river's off-limits, and the new resort manager, redneck  Rhett (Jason Kirkpatrick), is pretty much a sleazeball. And at least one of the girls, Fay, has been followed by her problems - in the person of her violent ex James (Alexander Biglane). Thing is, Wendy has not told the others everything when she booked the trip, as she actually choose the very resort to invocate mermaid goddess Erzulie (Leila Annastasia Scott), something the other girls readily join in. Of course, this sounds like a rather fantastic idea - but it still works, as later on Erzulie kills Jame. But this might solve one problem, but it creates a whole deal of other ones, including who'll take the fall for James's murder, as the police isn't likely to believe the mermaid story. On top of that, Rhett wants to capture Erzulie for himself, and he figures the girls might be the perfect bait for a mermaid - and he isn't really on the restrained side of things when it comes to getting what he wants ...

 

Now above might sound like a slightly silly run-of-the-mill horror flick, and there would be nothing wrong with that, but actually this movie has a lot more subtext and backstory than your usual horror flick, as it weaves topics like toxic male-female relationships and enviromentalism into the mix - but without ever becoming preachy or forgetting to entertain in a genre context. And an atmospheric directorial effort and solid performances by all involved make sure this is cool horror entertainment - just with a bit more weight to it than your usual shocker.
