The secrets that the oceans on this planet hold are endless. Even though we are on the same planet as them, we have only explored a small fraction of what they hold. With all of tales from the past that have been told over the years about giant squids, krakens, holes in the water and man eating whales, there must be some truth behind the stories. We know very little about what is hidden in the vastness of the water, but since those stories have died out over the years, it may just be a way of telling us we don’t really want to know the truth.
Kelly and Lucy are ready to go on vacation with their old friend Alex from college. Lucy and Alex had a romance many years ago and although they still keep in touch, they have not seen each other since they split up. Meeting up at their hotel, Alex drops the bombshell that he has a fiancé, breaking Lucy’s heart about why she came on the trip in the first place. Kelly knows that the surprise is killing her best friend, but being talked out of leaving, the two have prepared themselves for the trip of a lifetime.
Leaving the hotel, the girls find out that Alex has a home on an island that is sparsely populated. Being surrounded by the vastness of solitude, Kelly and Lucy are out of their element, but they would not have it any other way with the promises Alex has made about what they will be doing. Heading off to an abandoned military base, the group goes for a swim but is met by a handsome stranger, Boban who seems to know the area better than their tour guide. Boban has eyes for the young ladies and over drinks, the group decides to head out to an abandoned prison on the island of Mamula which has been deemed off limits by the government many years ago.
Arriving at the old prison, the group is blown away by the sights as it has not been touched for over sixty years. But they find out quickly that they are not alone as a strange sea man is found dumping body parts into the courtyard's well. Trying to get away from their impending doom, the group finds out that someone sank their boat and now they are left with trying to find an alternative way of getting off of the island. While being hunted by the mystery man, Alex and Boban are privy to hearing a beautiful song and need to find the source before the leave the island. Finding out that there is a woman at the bottom of the well, Kelly urges the group to find and release her as well before leaving, but this woman has other plans for the trespassers. Finding the trapped woman becomes the least of the group’s problems as they are not only tormented by the mystery man, but now by a woman from the pages of Greek mythology, a mermaid looking for blood.
Killer Mermaid follows Kelly and Lucy as they are prepared for a vacation of a lifetime while meeting up with their old college friend Alex. Alex has planned the vacation to a tee to keep his friends happy and entertained, but he has a secret, as he is getting married. As the girls find this hard to believe, they try to keep their feelings hidden so Alex and his new fiancé do not make them leave. Heading off to the surrounding islands around his home, Alex shows the girls an abandoned military base, but it is not interesting enough for Kelly as she questions the island that is further off called Mamula. Although the island has been deemed off limits, there is no one there to protect it from trespassers so the group makes it without any problems, but they are not the only ones on the island as they quickly find out. Being hunted down by an old sea man, they discover the island's true secret as they spot a woman who is trapped in the prison's well. Not knowing what they are up against, the group tries to rescue her while attempting to flee the island, but they find out why the island has been shut down to the public as the woman is actually a mermaid. With her beautiful songs, the men of the group are held helpless and the women have to do anything they can to release them from her grasp. But this mermaid holds a secret of her own, as she is hungry for blood and does not care where it comes from. With the help of an old local that knows the secret of the island, the surviving members of the group make it back to their island, but with the smell of blood in the water, the mermaid will not sit idly by.
Do not let the title fool you at all, this movie is about a Killer Mermaid. There is plenty of history and tales attached to the story, so you will know all there is about the mermaid history and lore. I wish I had lessons like this in school, I would have paid much more attention when it came to mythology and would not have to study up on them now. It’s a fun movie to watch if you are in the mood for something to fill the time with. Although the mermaid does not have any lines, she has plenty of screen time and fills it with plenty of emotions. Stay Scared.
