‘Her song is alluring. Her kiss is deadly.’

The Mermaid’s Curse is a 2020 Britsh horror feature film about a young writer who finds a seductive, sultry, young woman lying injured on the beach. The more he falls for her, the more he will learn the dangers of falling in love with a siren. The original title was Witches of the Water

Directed by Louisa Warren (Vikings vs. Krampus; Tooth Fairy; Curse of the Scarecrow) from a screenplay written by Tyler-James, the ChampDog Films production stars Rebecca Finch, Tom Hendryk, Tony Manders and Nina Jay. The film is a remake of Deadly Waters (2015) which we presume was made on a lower budget.

The movie was produced by Scott Jeffrey (director of Clown Doll; The Final Scream; The Bad Nun) and Louisa Warren and executive produced by Steven M. Smith (Doll House; Doll Cemetery; The Haunting of Borley Rectory).


ITN Distribution will release The Mermaid’s Curse on DVD in the USA on June 16, 2020. Order in advance from

” …there’s almost no heat or chemistry between Hendryk and Finch. And a film with this kind of relationship at its centre needs a cast and director who can deliver that. We have to be sold on the attraction between them […] Despite that, there is enough interesting stuff going on to make The Mermaid’s Curse the best film I’ve seen from the director. Faint praise I know but there you have it.” Voices from the Balcony
