She Creature

"The hidden truth about mermaids..."

A traveling circus owner is informed of the existence of a mermaid in Ireland. Guided by his thirst for wealth and glory, he steals her from her owner and brings her on his ship, headed to America.

However, the creature that doesnít speak much knows more than she shows. She quickly recognizes her enemies and murders them, one by one. Lily seems to be the only person who sympathizes with her and she knows exactly what will happen if she isnít freed before the full moon.





Pardon my ignorance, I imagined mermaids in the Disney manner. This film brings us back to the original legends where evil is subjective, where the bad guys arenít truly who we think they are. Here is a successful story of revenge that doesnít fall into the technological stupidity of science fiction monster films.

While not very entertaining, She-Creature has the merit of featuring something new by digging up a nearly forgotten topic. The mermaid is seen here at bit like a vampire or even a werewolf. The full moon affects her, she possesses psychic powers and is attracted by women.

The film is relatively slow but, considering it is a made-for-tv movie, it is still interesting and the special effects (exception made of the conclusion) are soft to the eye and arenít pretentious. The mermaid, before her metamorphosis, is even more fascinating because of we know she can break out of the glass that keeps her captive at any moment. She could pounce without warning and, because everything is done to keep her mysterious, her silence is what is the most worrisome.
