There may be spoilers the rest of the review

Verdict: Strong Drama

Story: Siren starts with a secluded house where Leigh (Shaw) lives away from the world where she starts to look back on previous events in her life. She get two visits while looking like someone else where we see the power she has on the men but when a mysterious stranger Guy (Kazinsky) comes into her life but unlike all men before hasn’t instantly fallen for her.

When Guy fates Leigh nurses him back to health mostly because she is interested to figure why he isn’t affected by her like all other man are. As we learn more about Leigh’s life we learn that she works for some dangerous people who want to use her for their own gain. As both Leigh & Guy get to know each other they learn that their medical conditions have put them in a position hasn’t been able to let them live their own lives but together they could start something special, but the true motives behind each of the characters could leave everything ruined.

Siren is a film that offers up a few questions as well as leaving you to wonder just how people would really react to Leigh in real life. I feel this is an interesting story that does have fairy tale elements but is one for adults. It also has elements of thriller and romantic where we watch two people come together. I feel this was very enjoyable from start too finish. (8/10)
