Everyone loves Disney’s adaptation of “The Little Mermaid,” but when you put some thought into the concept half-human/half-fish she-creatures aren’t quite as cute and spunky as Ariel appeared on the big screen back in ’89.

Today’s Pre-Code chiller illustrates that point beautifully¬† horrifically with a love tale turned bitter between a more malevolent – if somewhat gullible – mermaid and a seafaring adventurer who may well be an ancestor of Star Trek’s James T. Kirk based upon his rather manipulative approach to love and romance.

The 13 Days Of Halloween continue with “Monsters Of The Deep” from The Unseen # 14 (Standard, April 1954). The art is by Ralph Mayo.
