A group of friends escaping the city have a simple plan: to tour the coast for a relaxing weekend. Things hit a snag when one of them spots a seductive, sultry young woman waving for help off the shore of one of the many secluded islands along the coast. Reaching out to rescue her turns deadly, and they risk everything to get off the island alive.

Siren is a step above the film quality of most straight-to-video movies, but a weak story plagued with plot holes makes for a confusing film.

Siren tells the story of a group of friends who make a weekend getaway by sailing the coast. They discover a secluded island with an injured man, and a mysterious woman with a dark secret. The longer they remain on the island, the more the friends experience a twisted blur between nightmares and reality.

The good news about the movie is that it was filmed entirely off the coast of Tunisia in Northern Africa, so we're treated to beautiful scenes of the beach and ocean. Director Andrew Hull has a few other low-budget movies under his belt, and the production quality of Siren is a bit better than most Redbox flicks. Despite most of the cast having only appeared in a few obscure movies, they do a decent job in this film.

The bad news is that the film is filled with plot holes. Even the first five minutes of the film, before the sailing trip begins, includes a creepy bathroom scene that is never explained nor revisited. While some mystery is good, and can create suspense, the film becomes annoying near the conclusion due to a lack of explanations. Even the dialogue stops making sense as the movie draws to a close.

Keep in mind that this movie doesn't really reflect the Sirens of Greek mythology, so even knowing their story doesn't give you the full picture. The only way I discovered what the plot was really about was by checking out the deleted scenes in the DVD extras. For reasons that I'll never understand, a clip titled "Tale of the Siren" was removed from the movie. It offers an explanation of who the mysterious girl is, her connection to one of the travelers, and why tragedy befalls visitors to the island.

The cover is of something that doesn't happen in the film - no bikini clad knife wielding babes.

Disconnects abound in this film. From the very start Rachel (Anna Skellern) stands alone on a desert highway in a sexy red dress. She's hitchhiking. She's picked up by Ken (Eoin Macken) and as they drive along she places a hand between her legs. He catches sight of this and they almost drive off the road.

They pull over and she goes into a bathroom stall. He follows. They go to make love only she sees a mysterious man's face. There's no man in any other stall. And there's the next disconnect. The vision of the man leads to nothing.

Further, Rachel and Ken know each other and were play-acting a role of hitchhiker and driver. They don't even continue their love-making. They just change into other clothes and move on down to a port.

This film's full of these things that lead nowhere.

Along with Marco (Anthony Jabre) they sail till they are lured to an island who's sole living occupant, Silka (Tereza Srbova) - the Siren of the title leads them into realms of unreality where they're not sure what's real and what's not.

Then the film becomes more confused!

Silka and Rachel slip off their clothes and skinny-dip, but you only see them from behind.

SIREN is one of those movies you can't believe you watched, let alone bought! Don't fall for the deceptional cover cause it has nothing to do with the movie.
The mythical story of sirens who lured sailors to their death with their seductive singing could've made an interesting premise. However, the script for SIREN bounces all over the place, inserting senseless allusions to what is real and what isn't. Throw in the inevitably boring lesbian scenes to add to the confusion. The siren herself is about as menacing as a slug and while lovely is hardly worth dying for. So much of the movie doesn't make sense, and it's really boring. The ending is both predictable and unimpressive.
An ambulance ride with sirens blazing is more terrifying!

This was so boring. The quality of the film and the acting weren't bad. But nothing happened really other then weird hallucinations or something. I don't even know cause its never explained. I was just utterly bored for the ENTIRE movie.

First of all, don't be fooled by the cover art. Other than one quick, largely anti-climactic scene, there's no correlation with the cover and the movie contents. Second, while the concept was generally interesting, it completely lacked punch throughout. The movie was definitely professionally done and has high production values, but the film just meanders scene to scene without bringing it all together, resulting in one blah bit after another. Additionally, the film tries to create a sense of constant confusion due to the siren affecting the characters thoughts. While this idea had great promise, it also fell flat. Rather than creating dramatic confusion and unease, it created simple actual confusion that unnecessarily and completely devolved the film into a incomprehensible narrative. To some degree, its almost worth a rental, especially if you've gone through the usual fare, just don't expect a great story.

The acting was atrocious, but the sex scenes were awesome. The director should have just turned it into a porno, then it could have been the best porno ever as the plot was more than enough for a porn movie but not quite enough for a theatrical release. It's never a good thing when you don't care if all the characters die.
