Movie Reviews

Dennis Hopper falls for a sexy mermaid!
Dave | Tennessee United States | 01/05/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This underated cult classic is very entertaining, especially considering the fact it was made on a shoe-string budget. That just goes to show that you can make a great movie with little money! If you're considering buying this on dvd, then the Image Entertainment edition is the one you should get.

A very young Dennis Hopper stars as a sailor on leave in California who meets a beautiful young woman who works as a mermaid in the seafront carnival. He knows nothing about her but quickly falls for her (can't blame him for that!). Over time, however, he notices she's got a dark, mysterious side to her that she's hiding.

Hopper confronts the woman's guardian (a step-father, sort of) and tries to learn more, but he's told that she is a real mermaid who's already lured two former boyfriends to their deaths. Only too late does Hopper doscover the truth, but I won't give away the ending.

With memorable music by the legendary composer David Raksin and an independantly-filmed movie script that actually works, this is a movie that will entertain fans of suspenseful classics and especially fans of Dennis Hopper. The picture and sound quality of this dvd are surprisingly good for an independant movie this old. Highly recommended!"
1960's cult classic

"Dennis Hopper has not been so sweet since.
This is one of my favorite films. 1960's Venice Beach, a young sailor played by Dennis Hopper falls in love with a sideshow mermaid named 'Mora' ( Linda Larsen.)
I was shown this film two years ago in London when I was in a play called "Babalon" at the John Guilgud Theater. I played Marjorie Cameron, widow of Jack Parsons, infamous Californian magician and protege of Alistair Crowley. The real 'Cameron' has a cameo in this film as a sea-priestess who haunts Mora. Her character gives the psychological mystery a supernatural possibility.
Lots of carnival imagery, Tarot readings, carousel horses, jazz, beach, moonlight and an intriguing story. Beautifully photographed in black and white.. .what I call silver..."
