In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. This indi- (low budget) movie is about this mythological creature and it isn’t bad at all. This is review of Siren.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
The movie started out as typical horror movie. Group of guys are taking their good friend for a bachelor’s party. They discovered this secret underground party and the bachelor’s party quickly turned into nightmare.
For low budget film, the special effects are pretty good. There aren’t much special effects and gore in the movie but when there are it is adequate.
I also liked how the movie ended. There isn’t any big twist or surprise ending but it is satisfying.
If you see the horror anthology, VHS, you recognized that this movie is full featured film of one of the segment from the movie. They even got the same actress (Hannah Fierman) to play the creepy monster. The director Gregg Bishop who contributing to 2014 film “V/H/S Viral” makes this film more intriguing. David Bruckner is credited for screenplay and he is responsible for original short film called Amateur Night.
Lead actress, Hannah Fierman was hesitant to play the mythology creature in the Amateur Night which first was short segment of the 2012 horror anthology, V/H/S. Who would be excited to play a naked demon girl in a indi-horror film. But she knew previous work done by David Bruckner and trusted him. Her willingness take chance on this project paid off. She did a great time playing this creepy mythological creature and her performance as the terrifying. Short segment called Amateur night proved to be one of the film’s most memorable turns and she is now reprising the role in the feature-length tale SiREN.
Rest of casts include Chase Williamson, Justin Welborn, Hayes Mercure, Michael Aaron Milligan, Brittany S. Hall, Randy McDowell, Lindsey Garrett, and William Mark McCullough.
