A man searches a secluded lake for the monster that murdered his husband in the award-winning film The Siren, the new fantasy-horror film from writer-director Perry Blackshear (They Look Like People).
The Siren is an enthralling, seductive and creepy supernatural tale about cursed star-crossed lovers. Tom (Evan Dumouchel, Stephen King‘s Doctor Sleep) is a mute man from a sheltered, religious background who is haunted by the childhood accident that cost him his voice. While on a retreat at a lake house, he meets Al (MacLeod Andrews, Doctor Sleep), whose husband drowned in the lake-one of many mysterious deaths that occurred there.
“The area is marked by a local legend of a lovelorn spirit who haunts the surrounding woods and drowns anyone she encounters. The legend proves all too real when Tom encounters the beautiful creature. Drawn to her immediately, Tom knows he has found his soulmate in the seemingly human Nina (Margaret Ying Drake, They Look Like People, 59 Seconds), who must battle to repress her demonic instincts when she feels the same toward him. Meanwhile, Al, possessed by vengeance, circles the pair, getting ever closer to tracking down the monster that destroyed his happy marriage.”
“Part dark fairy tale and part nightmare, The Siren is a heart-wrenching story of passion and revenge that will take hold of you and never let you go.”
The film won three awards at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, including Best Director, for Perry Blackshear, and Best Actor, for Evan Dumouchel. It was also nominated for Best International Feature Film at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival.
