SIREN is on Netflix now and you should really check it out. The horror movie is based on a short film from the horror anthology V/H/S. And yes, it works pretty damn well as a feature film. Check it out on Netflix and read our full Siren review here!

Siren is a new horror movie on Netflix. It’s based on a short film from the horror anthology V/H/S which was the first in its franchise. It was one of the best short films in the anthology so this feature film was an obvious choice to create a feature film from.

Fortunately, the awesome cast and old school effects mean it really does work as a feature as well. It’s from 2016 but with this Netflix release, it’s bound to finally reach a larger audience.

Chase Williamson stars

The lead protagonist and star of Siren is Chase Williamson. Well, obviously, Hannah Fierman is an absolute key as the title character as well, but we follow Jonah in this movie and he’s portrayed by Chase Williamson.

If you’re not familiar with Chase Williamson, then you have been missing out on some awesome little indie horror movies. He starred in the title role of John Dies at the End (2012), which I highly recommend. Also, he was in the Christmas horror anthology All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018), which we reviewed here and the horror movie Beyond the Gates.

Finally, the always amazing Justin Welborn plays a key role as Mr. Nyx. You might recognize Justin Welborn from the TV series Sharp Objects and Godless or the movie Beyond the Gates which also starred Chase Williamson.

Siren (2016) Review – Horror on Netflix

Watch Siren on Netflix now!

The director of Siren is Gregg Bishop and according to IMDb trivia, he insisted on using the same actor from the short film for the title role which is a huge plus for me. Hannah Fierman is brilliant as the siren, Lily. Also, this feature film has managed to keep the energy and creepiness from the short film and simply build on this.

If you’ve watched the short film in the V/H/S horror anthology, then you have to check out the Siren movie on Netflix now. If you’ve never watched the horror anthology, then don’t worry about it. This movie is entirely its own.

Siren is out on Netflix in the US from January 1, 2020.


Director: Gregg Bishop
Writers: David Bruckner
Stars: Chase Williamson, Hannah Fierman, Justin Welborn, Hayes Mercure, Michael Aaron Milligan, Randy McDowell, Lindsey Garrett


SiREN is a horror-thriller about Jonah, an apprehensive groom-to-be whose bachelor party turns into a nightmare when he frees a seemingly innocent victimized girl locked up in a supernatural sex club. Her ruthless handler and proprietor of the sex club will stop at nothing to re-capture his prize. Jonah struggles to rescue the girl only to discover it is he who needs to be rescued as he comes to the realization that she is a dangerous fabled predator who has chosen him as her prize.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
