What a letdown. The film starts off with a strong idea for a ghost story, by following the story of a ship's crew on their final voyage. The crew set off and soon find they are shipwrecked and almost stranded on a desolate island. The crew take shelter in a small lighthouse and encounter a strange character that does not appear at all scary or mysterious. The film is very slow moving and has no momentum. The plot makes no sense as it jumps from one thing to another. Some scenes are just boring. While the film does have some interesting elements, it just lacks suspense, mystery or terror. Like every ghost film, it is just plain unimpressive. Probably the worst in all the Ghost Genre.
I expected a rather obnoxious, slasher-y horror movie in the vein of Slumber Party Massacre, but what I got was a now bloated, self-contained and retarded movie that is a complete bore if you're old enough to know what those terms mean. P.S. I was 17. Ghost Ship stinks for all the right reasons. This movie has a lot of bad writing, direction, and acting. Don't go in thinking it's going to be awesome.The town isolates and the crew are mysteriously stranded on a deserted island. The crew soon encounter the ghost of a woman, who is more than a little intense. What's strange is that she's got to be the most sarcastic, non-aggressive ghost as of the entire bunch. The rest of the characters keep their lights on and don't act spooked. The crew eventually get the ship's engines working, but they are only able to get it to a nearby lighthouse. They can't leave as the crew is stranded and the blustery sea has made the engines/boats inoperable. The ghost woman does occur every night around 10 p.m. and I guess that's the time she goes to sleep in empty rooms. So we get a plot twist that you might expect for this kind of movie: a crew member sleeps in an empty room, where--at 10 pm--the ghost appears. I feel like if she were real, this would be a pretty lame way to waste my time. In case you don't see the problem with the moronic plotting, I'll spell it out for you. d2c66b5586
