Ghost Ship - 'Good wholesome terror amongst the open seas.'




Pros
If the poster is this good, imagine how great the movie will be


Cons
Brian Cox is not in it






Full Review
When is a ship not a ship? When it's a ghost ship! A ship that is a ghost. That is the plot of this terrifying new horror flick about a ship that has been ruthlessly murdered and comes back in ghost form to avenge its wrongful death I'm assuming. This is a fantastic film probably! Just the thought alone of a spooky, scary ship returning from the grave to morbidly haunt the ocean is enough to send chills down my spine. Don't get me wrong. A film like this can easily miss its mark. But this film was made with some class. Opting for the use of a scary skull face on the front of the ship rather than the campy bed sheet draped over the hull so common with the genre.

The film is also supported by an amazing, star studded cast. Featuring the likes of Gabriel Byrne, who gave us such memorable roles as the exorcist in The Exorcist and Keyser Soyse In Keyser Soyse's Usual Suspicion, as well as Julianna Margulies who played a hispanic maid on ER. They're combined acting skills should help make your cruise along the creepy seas a horrifying and shocking one. Not to mention 'fun!'. "Welcome to the Ghost Ship, sir and/or madam. How can I help you?" "More chills please."

In conclusion, I would whole heartedly recommend this film to anyone who is looking for some frightfully, good fun. I myself plan on catching this instant horror classic at one of the many luxurious theaters near me very soon. Perhaps accompanied by a young lady with whom I can enjoy a good spook with and may one day carry my seed. But for now, the next time you're out just relaxing in the middle of the ocean minding your own business, keep watching your back.....there may be ghost ships about.

The Bottom Line
Without trying to over-hype it, I'd have to say this film will most likely change your life forever and probably fulfil your every hope and desire.
