Little Mermaid horror short to premiere at Screamfest

Mrs Morgan's Florilegium, transit of Venus, Natalie Waddell, mermaids,

A short film adaptation of The Little Mermaid, made by students at Vancouver Film School will get its world premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in the Screamfest Horror Film Festival on October 21, 2011.

The pitch: In a barren wasteland lies a circus tent. Inside, a ringmaster forces a mermaid to perform for a group of spectators. The mermaid, a lovesick, caged animal prays for release from her torture. Unwilling to surrender his meal ticket, the ringmaster rejects her pleas for compassion. With nowhere to escape to, the mermaid must make the choice between holding on to the hope of freedom and putting an end to her abuse.
