Ghost Ship (2002)
Director: Steve Beck
Main Stars: Julianna Margulies, Gabriel Byrne, Ron Eldard, Emily Browning, Francesca Rettondini, Isaiah Washington
Storyline: A long lost ship is found on the Bering Sea and it is being towed to land and haunted.
Review (Spoils): A lost ship is discovered from 1962 floating adrift on the Bering Sea. When they start to tow the whip back to land strange occurrences start to happen such as a little girl wandering the halls, singing in the background for no reason and the haunting flashback of what really happened.
First off this film starts off with a bang! The opening scene of the night of 1962 is awesome. The CGI was done pretty decent as the whole scene with the broken wire is a classic but then the film just falls flat. The whole haunting child (skeleton hanging) is boring and not overly exciting or shocking. Oh wait the crew wanted money big surprise there and it’s all about gold. Aren’t all haunting ship stories?
The film started off great and then it turned into a big question storyline instead of being shocking and frighting. We learn tales of the crew and the rich people that were passengers on the ship and why they haunt the ship in general. Also the mystery of why things are the way they are on the old aging ship. Pretty boring stuff in general.
Rating: This film could of been so much more and good of been a great gorefest but unfortunately it became a typical boring Hollywood horror movie of the shitty 2000 generation of horror. Next!
