To me, this movie is perfection.
One of my all time favorites.
Good movie but grossly overrated
I loved the actors, I loved the story line, but the ending didn't answer any questions and left you thinking "surely that's not it." It had just started getting good and then done. From what I've read, there is not a sequel. I would not have watched this knowing it didn't have more. From what I've read about the book, same thing. I won't waist my time.
I have read the book and now I have watched the movie and I feel that there was things left out and changed. The setting in the book is in the south there was fog all around the Island and she didn't meet TJ on the boat like that. She lived with her mother in the book her father wasn't dead but they were divorced. Her grandmother that she had never met was the one to die in the book. There was some things I liked in the movie and would love for them to make another unfortunately there isn't a sequel to the book it leaves you hanging.
This is so amazing. Been waiting to something like this about selkies/sea walkers. The plot will sweep you of your feets and keep the mystery going till the end. I thought this would end in some kind solution but it just left me hanging here. I hope they make sequel because I will be definitely watching. We want more! :)
This was a truly good Lifetime movie. The cast was perfect and they had great chemistry in telling the story. However the story was left with too many questions and didn't answer the overall question or fill in the blanks and gaps. It was like false advertising. There is too much speculation for the viewer to fill in which makes me think either the book was written this way or the person who wrote the screenplay cut corners. When I looked at the synopsis of the book, it was her grandmother who passed away so I am wondering if her father actually died in the book as he did in the movie which indicated he was a seawalker which would make Maranda half seawalker. Unless the author writes another book to fill in the blanks and continue the story, I could see this as a short limited series on the CW or Freeform channel unless Lifetime decided to create another movie based off a new screenplay to explain and continue the story. Is Maranda half seawalker, did her g=father die because he was no longer swimming, why did her Mom try to kill her when she was an infant, how does the town explain the disappearance of several people, do they ever return, can Maranda be the key to save them and etc. Too many questions left to ponder...
