August '15 - Killer Mermaids.
I saw a movie called Killer Mermaids. There
was nothing on TV so I browsed through the
movies available to rent on the PlayStation
and came across this film. I've always loved
stories about mythology such as mermaids,
fairies, elves, etc so I thought this may be
an interesting film. It was fairy expensive,
£4.95 to rent the high-def version, while to
keep was about £15.00, so I just rented
instead. The movie auto deletes from the
PlayStation within 48 hours of watching if it's
trailer was a little off putting to be honest.
It focused upon the two main female
characters in their bikini thongs far more
than the mermaid herself making me feel it
was one of those Baywatch style movies which
I certainly am not into. Luckily the movie

Siren call to put men into her spell causing
them to willingly approach. Women are immune
from her song but she still will not hesitate
to eat female flesh when she has the
opportunity. The psycho killer from earlier
in the movie is... I won't say any more as to
title of the movie, Killer Mermaids, is a
little inaccurate especially the DVD box art
which shows two of them. There is just one
killer mermaid after all. I also noticed
during the end credits there were a number of
references to Nymph which I suspect is the
original title of this movie.
recommend this film. It is brilliant, but it
does drag on for a little too long at the
start. If I watched it a second time I would
likely skip the first 45 minutes or so.
