‘Her story begins where the fairy tale ends’

Mermaid’s Songaka Charlotte’s Song is a 2015 Canadian fantasy horror feature film directed by Nicholas Humphries (ABCs of Death 2.5  “M is for Messiah”; Death Do Us Part) from a screenplay by Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, Meagan Hotz and Bob Woolsey, based on a story by Lindsey Mann. The Done Four Productions movie stars Iwan Rheon, Katelyn Mager, Brendan Taylor and Jessie Fraser.

 

Charlotte (Katelyn Mager) is a young girl coming of age in the midst of one of the most desolate and desperate periods in American history. Set in the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl, the untimely death of Charlotte’s mother triggers a downward spiral for her father, five sisters and their family-run song and dance act.

Help comes from an unlikely source when a gangster named Randall (Iwan Rheon) offers to pay off their debt in exchange for making some unsavoury changes to the family business.

Matters are complicated when it is discovered that Charlotte, like her mother before her, is, in fact, a mermaid capable of controlling humans with her voice…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“There’s a surprisingly great transformation scene (yes that’s a transformation from human to mermaid instead of say a werewolf) and some of the final moments where we actually see some deaths, it’s actually a lot of fun. But these are like the bread of a very big sandwich. And what’s in that sandwich isn’t very interesting.” Nerdly
