Siren (2010)

"Seduction is murder..."

Synopsis: A group of friends escaping the city for a weekend away have a simple plan, to tour the coast for a relaxing weekend. Things hit a snag when one of the friends spots a seductive, sultry young woman waving for help off the shore of one of many secluded islands along the coast. Reaching out to rescue her turns deadly and they risk everything to get off the island alive.

My Thoughts: I tried to like this movie. It had a couple hot chicks who didn't mind gettin naked, the acting was pretty decent, it was an original idea (there might have already been a horror flick involving 'sirens', but I can't remember one). The problem I had was about halfway through I started to get really aggravated. I don't know exactly what it was, but my guess is it was that annoying fuckin' song that the siren kept singing. I realize that sirens hypnotize people with their singing making it necessary to the plot, but still...

This was the late Andrew Hull's first feature film. The former British art director (P2, Get Over It) passed away soon after completing this movie. He showed promise here and it's a shame we'll never get to see what he could have done with better material.

Super-hot Aussie, Anna Skellern (Descent 2) helped me get through this during the slow parts and really is one of the only reasons to watch this one. Maybe someday I'll revisit this if I could find a way to overdub the siren's song with some old school Slayer tunes.

My Rating: 4 / 10

BTW, the DVD artwork that Lionsgate chose for this one is so fuckin' stupid (click here) and it gives me another reason to dislike this movie.

It's at the redbox and i guess it's maybe worth a buck.
