Today we take another look at John Lamb‘s Mermaids of Tiburon (1962). Pearl-coveting bad guy Milo Sangster (such a great character name) enjoys lunch while plotting his next nefarious enterprise.
The Psychotronica Vol. 3 DVD of Mermaids was apparently supposed to include some commentary by Romeo Carey, but looks like it never happened. It also includes the ridiculous “Aqua Sex” version of the film, which attempts to pass off some topless women with flippers on their feet as mermaids. I guess they figured nobody would notice they weren’t wearing mermaid tails. Let the head-shaking and eye-rolling commence.
yeah i really hate that other version. because the original is actual very cool with the mermaids. but of course we all know the villain steals the show. and perhaps romeo AND another person I know should have done that commentary.

There was no NEED for the other version. It’s not even sexy. Epic fail, as the kids would say!
