Editorial Reviews

The Mermaids of Tiburon: This film was produced and directed in 1962 as a fantasy-adventure by noted underwater cinematographer, John Lamb. Two years later, he chopped out 10 minutes, re-shot the close-ups and medium shots of the mermaids; revealing the enchantresses in the nude (with emphasis on actress Gaby Martone), and released it as "The Aqua Sex ". Twenty-three years later, Lamb took the time to re-edit his epic like he really wanted and, just to make sure, added additional nude footage using glamour model Diane Webber! The result is a beautifully photographed fantasy about mermaids who assist...and distract...a young scientist in his quest for sunken treasure, complete with Timothy Carey at his menacing best. Filmed in the pearl garden of Mexico's La Pez, and the kelp forest along the coast of Santa Catalina. Cry of the Bewitched: Sultry, cat-like, dancer-turned-actress Ninón Sevilla plays "Yambaó" in this classic Mexican psychological thriller. She arrives at a Cuban sugar plantation in 1850, at the same time the nearby village is hit with a plague! Guess who the villagers blame for the pestilence? Of course, it could just have been a misunderstanding, or just bad timing. But, the plot definitely thickens when it is revealed that her departed grandmother was a sorceress!

Like most film buffs, I had only seen the circulating black-and-white prints of MERMAIDS OF TIBURON. The DVD is a revelation, with gorgeous color. The B&W version was more of a crime film, but the color version is primarily a showcase for the mermaids, who are shown swimming topless underwater, etc. This may have been the version that was released to adults-only theaters while being retitled THE AQUA SEX.

The DVD also presents a hybrid print that is in color but deletes most of the topless footage. So, if you have an underwater enthusiast visiting who might not want to see the nudity, you can show the "family" version instead.

The DVD presents the film in better quality than I ever expected for this title, and the image is letterboxed as well. However, my copy doesn't have the promised audio commentary track (perhaps they didn't get around to doing that). This is the best transfer of MERMAIDS OF TIBURON that we're likely to see.

Interesting couple of films.....I had seen "Mermaids" in the original black and white version a few years ago. It was an odd experience to see it in color and the story is more focused on the topless mermaids than the plot of the original version. The original b&w version was centered around Diane Webber's performance as a mermaid. She is a minor player in the color version.

The second film in the set has an exceptional percussion soundtrack with singing. The drum/vocal compositions remind me of Haitian music that I've heard. The plot is mildly interesting, but the drumming is mesmerizing. I'd recommend this combo DVD for the drumming of the second film.

Love this film! I was 7 when I saw the black & white and never forgot it. Timothy Carey steals the show, as he does in every film he was in.

I prefer the original, the remake with the nudity is good, but I didn't like how the "mermaids" had a tail, then flippers, then feet. Gaby Martone has a beautiful body, but her face is fug, compared to Diane Webber's.
