There are a few scenes where Becca times herself holding her breath in the bathtub. This scene is very similar to the scene in Mermaids (1990) when Christina Ricci does the same thing. The main characters even have a conversation at the dinner table where they discuss how Becca may be part mermaid and will be growing a tail soon. Christina Ricci, Cher, and Winona Ryder have a very similar conversation in Mermaids. See more »

I'm not someone that likes to classify films under a particular category, but if I was pushed, I'd say this comes under melodrama, the horror element is very minor, only at the end do you get tinges of horror. It's kind of a family tragedy, mixed in with elements of Stranger things. In spite of that I really rather liked it, it has a bit of originality, it has plenty of expectation, albeit those expectations aren't fully realised, but has some very well rounded characters. The horror elements when they come are fairly minor, but the gas visual works well. For me this is a film that deals with grief more then anything.
Don't expect to be scared, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. 6/10
