RKS Films: “Erzulie”: Gentleman Be Kind to the Ladies

“Erzulie” is a warning film to men who mistreat ladies. Erzulie is a river mermaid that is a protector of women and children.

We start the film with a “Jaws “scene of some obnoxious guy Brad bothering one of his lady companions and hurts her by tossing a beer can at her. Poor Brad disappears from his float on the river in a pool of blood. Got your interest?

It would appear throughout the film any man that harasses or abuses a lady draws the ire of the mermaid!

What you think may be a horror movie morphs into a mystery film as a group of gal pals converge on a camping ground for a happy reunion. Well it is not so happy as some are scarred by bad men in their life including one suffering physical abuse at the hands of James. James enjoys a “final swim” in the pool. Then there is the campground manager a gun toting, cocaine sniffing and illegal dumper of chemicals into the river inhabited by Erzulie.

You might want to conclude the film veers from horror where bad men meet their just desserts. Does the film fall into the horror-feminist-ecological genre? This genre lifts it above a campy B movie. A fun watch. Erzulie ladies may be what you deserve.

RKS Film Rating 79/100.
