Somehow simultaneously hilarious, heartbreaking, and terrifying. I didn't expect the ending scene to hit me as hard as it did.

What are critics saying?


IndieWire by David Ehrlich

Dare to peek under the scales of this wholly original and ominously enchanting nightmare, and you’ll find a simple story about the things that society forces a girl to give up if she wants to be part of our world.


Variety by Guy Lodge

This kooky-monster escapade is never less than arresting, and sometimes even a riot.


The Guardian by Lanre Bakare

The Lure’s premise alone will turn heads but once the novelty wears off the question will remain: where’s the story?


Village Voice by Odie Henderson

The film's messages are cleverly wrapped in Smoczynska's entertaining, original vision. It's sexy, fearless, fun, and unrepentantly nasty.


The Playlist by Russ Fischer

Crafted as a kaleidoscope of color and nightclub sparkle, The Lure's glitter does not distract from the fact that this is a technically confident and often quite accomplished piece of filmmaking, with a rare ability to dance intuitively between linear plotting and phantasmagoric fantasy.
