Night Tide

A sailor on leave, Denis Hopper in his first major role, falls in love with a beautiful, strange woman who plays a mermaid at an ocean-front fair attraction. He dismisses her fears that she might be a real siren as delusional, but is warned that her last two boyfriends mysteriously drowned. A rare film, Night Tide is a poetical, dream-like treasure of American indie cinema, made on a shoestring budget by underground artist Curtis Harrington.
