This Movie is About a Group of Man-Eating Mermaids Who Form a New Wave Band

That headline is 100% accurate. The Lure, a new feature from first-time director Agnieszka Smoczynska, follows the fortunes of two mermaids (Golden and Silver) who somehow end up in a New Wave band in Warsaw during the 1980s (after a turn at being strippers, of course). One of them falls in love. The other starts eating people. (The vodka in Poland has to be really, really good. Or really bad.)

When the movie opens February 1, it’s probably best if you watch it high. Or maybe that’s totally unnecessary.
