I hope tensions between the US and Russia thaw if for no other reason than to increase the flow of horror movies between our two countries. We’ve featured some trailers for some pretty amazing films from Russia over the years, but few ever make it to our American shores. A perfect example, check out the trailer for The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead below.

This ain’t no Disney mermaid story! In fact, The Mermaid looks like a surreal blend of The Shape of Water and The Ring. The film’s directed by Svyatoslav Podgaevskiy and will see a release in Russia this summer.
Official Synopsis: An evil Mermaid–who was once a beautiful young woman that drowned centuries ago–falls in love with a woman’s fiancé and aims to take him back to her deadly underwater kingdom.
The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead stars Viktoriya Agalakova, Igor Khripunov, and Efim Petrunin. You can check it out in Russian movie theaters on July 12th.
