V/H/S (HERE), which bears noting, because Siren is the full-length adaptation of one of the segments in that first movie, Amateur Night.
What is also of note is that the full-length effort actually came out better than its short-form predecessor did, which is usually not the case when shorts make the jump to feature length.
And it's not Found Footage, which is absolutely a good thing.
|DO THESE LOOK LIKE GUYS SMART ENOUGH TO RESIST SUCH A TEMPTING OFFER?|

|YEAH, YEAH, WE KNOW. YOU LIKE HIM.|
Hannah Fierman does a great job of stretching the character of Lily into something more than she was in the original short film. Sure she's terrifying, but the actress also makes her sympathetic and likable, which is no mean feat considering the character exists solely to lure men to their deaths. Justin Welborn's Mr. Nyx was memorable as well, taking another character that we knew we should be scared of, and making him likable. It's really nice to see well-rounded characters in a flick like this for a change.
And if we're being honest, some of the cgi is a bit lackluster, but that's a minor annoyance, really.
|THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T FALL IN LOVE WITH STRIPPERS.|
|LIKE THIS GUY.|
There are also plenty of other girls in various stages of undress throughout this one.
Siren is available now on VOD and DVD.
Elyse Dufour is too fiery hot for us to ignore.
