Mermaid's Song trailer puts a horrific twist on The Little Mermaid

Mermaid's Song Nicholas Humphries

Wild Eye Releasing has given MERMAID'S SONG, director Nicholas Humphries' "dark homage" to the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale The Little Mermaid, a digital release today, giving us a look at what it might have been like if Andersen had written The Little Mermaid as a horror story - although the film is set several decades after Andersen passed away.

Starring Iwan Rheon of Game of Thrones, MERMAID'S SONG takes place 

during the 1930s depression and tells of young Charlotte, who is struggling to keep the family business afloat. When gangster Randall offers to pay off the family debt - he demands some illegal changes to the business. But Charlotte, like her mother before her, is a mermaid capable of controlling humans with nothing but her voice, which creates a battle between all of those who want Charlotte's magical powers for themselves.

Katelyn Mager and Brendan Taylor co-star.

To get a preview of MERMAID'S SONG that will help you decide if it's a movie you'd like to check out, watch the trailer embedded below. I'm always into the idea of scary mermaids, so this is one I'll be taking a look at for sure.
