Dir: Ari Stidham
Star: Brock McKenzie, Maggie Wilson, Ella Schaefer, Amanda McCants
20-something Nick meets a gorgeous girl at a karaoke bar and brings her home. After she leaves, he starts noticing strange happenings in the house, but can’t convince sisters, Katie and Jenna, anything is going on. But when people start vanishing at a party hosted by them, all will have to struggle to make it out of the party alive as the horror of the night’s events becomes clear. From pool party to search party!
For his directorial debut, Ari Stidham has gone back into mythology, with a modern update on an ancient legend. Mixing horror with a splash or two of comedy, he has crafted an atmospheric tale, largely taking place in a single location, and ramping up the claustrophobia. Deliberately understated rather than in your face, this feels like the kind of story M.R. James might have written – if he was working in contemporary Los Angeles! Fangoria FearCon are delighted to present the world premiere of Curse of the Siren. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…
