A nicely atmospheric piece of work that I find compelling yet comforting. I'm a sucker for sideshow stuff so I had no trouble getting into this. Harrington never made a film better than this, and although I have an odd affection for his films, this is probably the only one that's essential.

I knew this was going to be special during the Tarot reading scene: a normally dismissive sidebar becomes a mature exploration of the film's characters and the human condition it reflects. A countercultural loss of innocence fable with memorable images, an eerie mood, and potent themes - a minor gem.

Good photography, occasional flashes of directorial vision. Recalls some works of Sturgeon or maybe Bradbury in its seaside setting and its melodramatic but unforced approach to pathos.

Obviously inspired by the Val Lewton-produced classic _Cat People_, Harrington's moody seaside chiller emerges as a sort of _Cat*fish* People_. Like its model, this is less an all-out horror film than a supremely eerie mood piece, heightened by B&W cinematography that captures the otherworldly aura of Santa Monica and Venice, California's seedy piers and amusement parlors. A West Coast cousin to _Carnival of Souls_, this movie rates as an essential addition to any genre-film library.

Strange, gently poetic horror film that features a fine early Dennis Hopper performance (as a wholesome, innocent young man?!?) and Linda Lawson as an exotic young lady who may or may not be a mermaid. The California beach atmosphere and the carnival attractions on the amusement pier are very well done.
