CeltArctic Folklore: re 'Lady in the Water' (8) RE: Folklore: re 'Lady in the Water' 28 Jul 06

Coyote Breath - yes, I will likely see it again. I thought it was interesting and entertaining. It did have some scary bits, but not enough to justify it being called a 'horror' film. And, like MAG points out, some of the comedic parts are priceless. It was satirical of the movie industry as a whole, which might possibly explain why so many reviewers are dismissing the film.

The Narf / Nart comparison is interesting. However, other than the character in the film being a powerful woman, she doesn't appear similar to Narts, as descibed in the link provided by Jack.

The 'hero', Cleaveland, gains his understanding of the mythology of Narfs from a Korean lady in one of the apartments. She's the one who provides the context to the tale. That made me wonder if the "Scrunts" and other critters might not have links to Asian folklore.

Still wondering...
