Director/Writer: Irene Taylor Brodsky

Synopsis: On May 31, 2014 in the woods of Waukesha, Wisconsin, two 12-yr-old girls, Morgan Geyser & Anissa Weier, stabbed their friend Bella Leutner 19 times & left her to die. Bella managed to crawl to the road & get help; she told her rescuers that ‘her best friend’ was the one who stabbed her. Morgan & Anissa were picked up not long after by police, & it was then they confessed to stabbing Bella in an effort to please Slenderman. The doc focuses not on the victim & her family, who declined to participate, but on the perpetrators & their families, as well as touching on the origin of Slenderman & the effect of internet culture on today's youth.

A cannibal mermaid horror-musical-comedy?! It's like writer Robert Bolesto picked all the perfect pieces and put them together to create The Lure. This film got a very limited release on 2/1/2017 but, if you're one of the lucky few who is able to see it at a local theater, go check it out! That way, when you tune in for our next episode, you won't have to worry about spoilers. Plus, why wouldn't you want to watch this? It sounds amazing!
