Siren (2016)★★★★☆


If I were going to wish for a feature-length adaptation of one of the V/H/S segments, I’m not sure “Amateur Night” would have been my first pick.

That said, it was one of the better segments, and this is an interesting adaptation of it.

It feels like they introduced too many new things into the story without providing much explanation, though. Like the film clarifies its predecessor but also adds layers of uncertainty and unknowability.

But I kind of like that. It works in this one, at least. And now I can hope for a sequel that gives more detail into Nyx and his nightclub!

(Can you believe there’s only one day left in 2016? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for this year to just be over already.)
