Judging by the trailer alone, Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Smoczynska’s directorial debut, The Lure, has everything I could ever want in a movie. It appears to be an aesthetically delectable movie-musical about Loch Ness monster-style mermaids who eat people. Mermaids are long overdue for a cultural resurgence, and this has cult status written all over it.
