Critic Reviews for Ghost Ship
Director Beck loses it, with techno-scored flashbacks (note: techno isn't scary) and blow-up-the-place gimmickry...
The final reel plots a course smack between predictable and sheer idiocy.
The setting is perfectly promising -- but this is the usual dumbed-down stuff, heading for the video bin.
As a feature helmsman, [Beck's] brought us Thirteen Ghosts ... and Ghost Ship, both of which are absolutely atrocious films for any number of reasons.
Audience Reviews for Ghost Ship
I dont know why but every time i watch this movie i enjoy it more and more! Its a good creepy horror that i dont think is a let down at all ! In my books it well worth a watch!
[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Once the protaganists got on the titiluar ship there was one massive jump that spooked me, and I was convincing myself that maybe the film wasn't as bad as everyone was saying but to my displeasure it sank my expectations completely shortly afterwards. On the positive side, the acting isn't awful and the set pieces are excellent and sometimes quite creepy. However the plot is derivative and sadly it's never as scary as it should be.
Can I please get one thing straight - if a film has a jumpy moment near the beginning of a film, it HAS TO KEEP TO THAT JUMPY THEME! You get one jumpy scene with a clock, then that's it folks - Ghost Ship is flawed from the start. A scene where a boat full of people are killed by a metal wire that rips them all in half? I'm sorry, but no. Just no. It didn't work and I still don't get why it had to happen or why the villain had to exist in the first place, let alone the movie. I was told by two horror fans it was, and I quote "...alright". WRONG! It was one of the worst films I have ever seen. It seems to be suffering from what shall henceforth be known as the Paranormal Activity effect: the PA effect is where a film tries to make itself out as a good film, before failing after about 10-20 minutes (in most cases). In this film it took about 20 minutes for me to get bored and start half watching for a while until the ending. The only major attractions of the film are the ending (after the bit that belonged in a PG or a U (to be honest, that bit was ripped off from Pokemon The First Movie!)) where you find out something that gives the film a perk towards a good horror, the brief scene of nudity and the violence. If you are the sad sort of person who only wants a little bit of violence, poorly chosen music for the setting, and A pair of breasts, then watch this. But for those people who have taste and want to watch a good horror film, let this movie sink like the Titanic!
