Terror lies just beneath the surface in ‘The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead’ Out Now on DVD from Universal ( @universaluk )

The seaweed is certainly not always greener in this particular lake…

The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead begins with a mermaid falling in love with a human, but that’s where the similarities with Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale end, instead taking a terrifying twist as she instead aims to keep him underwater in her Kingdom of Death while his fiancé must overcome her fear of water in order to save his life. Creepy, haunting and packed with jump-scares, you’ll never feel safe to go back in the water.

Visually stunning with gorgeous effects, the film explores the darker side of the mermaid legend – luring men to their deaths with heir supposed beauty – which has been somewhat lost over the last few decades thanks to an iconic animated film.
