- Director: Curtis Harrington
- Writer: Curtis Harrington

Definitely, an oddity from a director who is - strangely - considered a forerunner to the New Queer Cinema movement. Possibly, due to his association and collaboration with Kenneth Anger.
Hopper does not give a virtuoso performance - wooden and flat, just like the writing - accompanied by a seriously hideous soundtrack.
Harrington, truly, had a strange career...a strange legacy.
On leave in a shore side town, Johnny becomes interested in a young dark haired woman. They meet and he learns that she plays a mermaid in the local carnival. After strange occurrences, Johnny begins to believe that she may actually be a real mermaid that habitually kills during the cycle of the full moon.
