The Lure Reviews
There is no continuity in narrative or character and it's all shot in an elliptical, heavily stylized, gaudily lit (much of it looks like it's shot through an algae-filmed aquarium) collage.
A genre-defying film that blends elements of musicals, horror, romance, and fantasy into a contemporary fairy tale that celebrates the animalistic, the feminine, and the intimate intersections between the two.
San Diego Reader
A nod to politically correct species reassignment surgery livens the third act, but the film eventually sinks under the weight of its own silly excess.
The Lure deserves to be seen, though it's sadly not as joyfully deranged as it could be.
Agnieszka Smoczynska's film is most poignant when it simply stares at its own strangeness.
The Lure is remarkable not just for its zaniness but for its willingness to let girls be girls. It's not a luxury often afforded to female characters, especially not in horror, and it's especially notable as the male characters are either food or flakes.
It's got teen romance, misandry, cannibalism, and synchronized dancing - what's not to love?
I thought the movie did such a great job balancing the fantasy elements of the fairy tale with a grittier contemporary setting.
Film Comment Magazine
The Lure is one of those perverse, intense, facetious yet perfectly earnest films that never stops having a good time-although its relentlessness means that the viewer might feel inclined to bow out of the festivities every now and then.
Los Angeles Times
A woozily entrancing mash-up, shimmying by itself in the corner of the horror-musical canon and sure to earn quizzically appreciative stares from genre enthusiasts.
It's sexy, fearless, fun and unrepentantly nasty.
The Daily Beast
Smoczynska's film swings and sways to its own eccentric beat, eventually branching out to also present portraits of adult longing and go-for-broke rebellion.
As cinematic Frankensteins go, The Lure is far from seamless, but if the movies are where mad scientists get points for trying, this ambitious experiment in genre hybridity at least deserves some sympathetic dissection.
It's the '80s rock musical with sex, mermaids, and murder you've been waiting for.
New York Times
Holding it all together is an exploration - always intriguing if not always coherent - of the myths and puzzles of female sexuality.
Smoczynska handles it all with death-sexy panache, aided and abetted in this superior catch by some drop dead sexy cinematography from Jakub Kijowski, and a boatload of seriously eye-popping setpieces. More, please.
The filmmakers' enthusiasm for their characters and the vanished period setting is palpable, asserting a certain fatalistic charm of its own.
A perversely strange take on The Little Mermaid lore, The Lure takes you into its stylish depths to relay the fate of some poor, unfortunate souls.
Abetted by impressive lo-fi effects work, the musical numbers alone come to resemble the wildest dreams of every Eurovision show producer.
Try as she might to pretend otherwise, Smoczynska builds her story upon the foundation of a fairy tale, and all of her fantastically bonkers ornamentations are supported by the romance that blossoms between Silver and Mietek.
