Review for Ghost Ship

Author: Wuchak

Ghostly happenings on a decades-lost lost ocean liner RELEASED IN 2002 and directed by Steve Beck, "Ghost Ship" revolves around salvagers finding a mysterious ship in the Bering Sea that's been lost for four decades and they intend to claim it, but things go from strange to worse as they board the eerie vessel and try to tow it to harbor. The cast is strong, headed by Gabriel Byrne. Emily Brown appears as a 12 year-old girl. Julianna Margulies looks fine but they don't do enough with her. Francesca Rettondini is also on hand. Let's just say the low-budget "Ghost Voyage" (2008) is better in the area of women. Still, the ship sets are excellent and it certainly seems like they shot the film on a real vessel. Interestingly, the Antonia Graza of the movie is a replica of the Andrea Doria. Other positives include: The refreshing score with “Not Falling” by Mudvayne thrown in for good measure; a nice haunting atmosphere at sea with one creepy scene reminiscent of the excellent “Dead Calm” (1989); potent visuals of the formidable vessel looming over the tugboat; plus some good thrills, notably one of the greatest horror scenes in the history of cinema in the prologue, no kidding. There's also a decent revelation thrown in at the end. If you like this one be sure to check out the aforementioned "Ghost Voyage," which is a TV movie. "Ghost Ship" was released to theaters and obviously had a bigger budget, but that doesn't mean it's better, just that it's more polished. THE FILM RUNS 91 minutes. WRITERS: Mark Hanlon and John Pogue. GRADE: B
