Time for another entry in our “Frolicking Under The Sea: Mermaid Fantasy Film Festival – August 2016”, and for some spooky fun we’re taking a peek at 2001’s pay cable remake of a 1956 classic, “She Creature”. Made for the Cinemax pay cable TV movie channel, it was part of a series of 5 Halloween films called “Creature Features”, all of which borrowed the titles of some of American International Pictures classic films of the 50’s and 60’s to make new films that weren’t strict “remakes” in as much as inspired tributes to those old classic movies. Of them all, “She Creature”, I personally think, was the best, and had the most lasting impression on this wee Catgirl. So much so that I naturally picked up a copy once these were released on DVD.
A quick synopsis? How’s this then: “Two Irish carnival workers, Angus and Lily, operate a lackluster sideshow for a tacky rundown circus. All of that has the potential to change when they meet an old sailor, Mr. Woolrich, who happens to possess a real mermaid. With visions of fame and success running through his head, Angus abducts the mermaid and boards a boat to America with Lily. However, the mermaid is not as docile as she seems, and as the voyage begins to go terribly wrong, crew members start mysteriously disappearing.”
Yep… a real honest-to-goodness period piece mermaid horror story. Neko just loves those…. Wanna hear the details and find out if it’s worth hunting down for a look? Then Gentle Visitors, you know what you gotta do, right? 😉
