Storyline

An homage to Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid", Done Four Productions' inaugural feature "Charlotte's Song" tells the story of Charlotte (Katelyn Mager), a young girl coming of age in the midst of one of the most desolate and desperate periods in American history. Set in the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl, the untimely death of Charlotte's mother triggers a downward spiral for her father, five sisters and their family-run song and dance act. Help comes from an unlikely source when a gangster named Randall (Iwan Rheon) offers to pay off their debt in exchange for making some unsavoury changes to the family business. Matters are complicated when it is discovered that Charlotte, like her mother before her, is in fact a mermaid capable of controlling humans with her voice. What follows is a sophisticated magical turf war in which antagonists from many camps seek to take advantage of Charlotte's power. The best and worst of humanity are put on display and Charlotte must choose her ... Written by anonymous

Not your ordinary sweet Little Mermaid
20 September 2018 | by shagee7977See all my reviews

Director Nicholas Humphries tackles this horror version of Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid called Mermaid's Song, premiering on digital from Wild Eye Releasing. This is a homage with a different spin of Hans Christian Anderson''s The Little Mermaid. It's very dark and very creepy. A young women trying to keep the family's singing and dancing club open proves hard. This is during the Great Depression of 1930's and Young Charlotte has a lot of work to do. When a charming gangster comes into the picture he offers to help her out and pay of the debt owed. Being a mermaid like her mom she possess magical powers. Magic powers that are done through her magical voice. With her voice she can control people. But when it's found out there is a battle from good bad and all that want the power of her voice for there own use. Wow this movie was nothing what I expected. It's a dark very atmospheric movie. The costumes and cinematography are very focused on what classic time period this is. If it was filmed in B/W you would think you were watching a movie from those golden days of film. I was amazed at what details were put into the making of this movie. Game of Thrones Iwan Rheon is featured as the Local Gangster Randall. But the prize goes to the amazing young actress Katelyn Mager. She is brilliant and you can see many good things coming the way of this young actress.

From director Nicholas Humphries, and starring Iwan Rheon, Katelyn Mager, and Brendan Taylor, Mermaid's Song arrives on digital September 18.
