“With high production values, a gorgeous backdrop, seriously beautiful makeup effects and a truly unique villain, Killer Mermaid is a fun, albeit shallow, horror film that really plays on the power of women. The ladies in this film are much more logical and tough than some of the men and the notion that a pretty lady can, literally, sing someone into their watery grave is pretty amusing.” Haddonfield Horror
“The fact that it proved more enjoyable upon a second viewing also says quite a bit about the production and its potential shelf life. If genre fans are willing to move beyond the preposterous concept, or the cheesy promotional posters and disc design, they’re likely to discover a movie that gets a few things wrong, a lot of things right, and a picture that will indeed hold the attention.” Matt Molgaard, Horrorfreak News
“With so little really explored in the mermaid arena, Killer Mermaid is a welcome film. Solid characters and grand locations definitely add to the scope of the film and create a world in which these creatures can exist.” Shock Till You Drop
“Not everything is bad about Nymph; the mermaid looks decent, the acting is passable and an appearance is put in by Franco Nero, it’s just that the negatives severely outweigh the positives here. Nymph is just too damn formulaic for me to have liked it all that much, what a shame.” Cinema Chords
At the time of writing, Killer Mermaids is available for streaming on Netflix.
