4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Ship is Surprisingly Good. March 21, 2003
Format:DVD
I decided to ignore most reviews of this film and check it out anyway. I am very glad I did. I don't understand why people think its so bad. Ghost Ship is about a crew who aboard an abandoned ship that went missing in 1962, and was never heard of again. The crew finds it and strange things begin to happen. They start seeing Ghosts, hence the title. The ghosts are the passengers who were brutally killed on the ship, obviously.
The film has a few scary moments and it moves along quickly. There is a major plot twist at the end that I did not see coming at all and I thought it was brilliant. You can't comment on the acting of a horror movie, it's pointless, but luckily Ghost Ship has a cast of well known, and talented actors such as Gabriel Byrne, Julianne Marguiles, and Ron Eldard. If not for them, the film could have been a lot more cheesy, but I thought the film was intriguing, scary, and creepy. The opening scene by far one of the most gruesome scenes in film is worth seeing this film for.

Ok, it's not the best ghost film ever made, but it is far better than the reviews here state. It's a movie about a haunting, not a slasher film. Like any good ghost film, Ghost Ship builds to a satisfying and memorable climax. Plus, there's some gory special effects (love the opening scene), nice camera work and an original storyline (for a change). The sinking of the oceanliner and releasing of the spirits is done beautifully. I loved the new "ghost crew" setting up the next ship for a simular fate! It's by far better than all the recent ghost garbage like Boo! and the horrible remakes of 13 Ghosts and The Haunting. If you like teenage body count films with blood and boobs, then pass by this one (and don't write bad reviews).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Favorite Guilty Pleasure October 13, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Finally on blu ray, this movie looks better than ever. Scary, not really; a few jumps here and there, but this movie is more like a 'Shining' on the water; lots of cool visuals and a very nice surprise at the end. No Oscars, but the acting is solid, the twists are interesting, and it's over in 90 minutes. A great opening sequence sets the tone, and this movie just chugs right along from there. Sequel?

Could have done without the toast to 'the sea', however.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waterlogged but watchable April 22, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
For the past several years, the folks at Dark Castle productions have given us a horror film just in time for Halloween. First came House on Haunted Hill, then 13 Ghosts, and finally Ghost Ship. Rest assured that Ghost Ship is better than the absolutely wretched 13 Ghosts, but doesn't have the appeal of House on Haunted Hill.
Forty years ago, the Antonia Graza, a luxury liner, was lost at sea. We learn in the incredibly gory opening scene of Ghost Ship how the passengers and crew of the ship met their untimely deaths. Jump forward to the present day. A salvage team, led by Julianna Margulies (Tv's ER) and Gabriel Byrne (End of Days, Stigmata) stumble across the Antonia Graza while at sea. The crew boards the ship in hopes of striking it rich. The problem is, the ship is haunted by those that died forty years ago. In typical horror movie fashion, the crew is disposed of one by one in reverse order of celebrity status.
The acting isn't top notch, but it's not pure garbage either. It's refreshing to see Margulies in a role that doesn't involve taking blood and urine samples. Byrne, who is becoming a fixture in suspense, is good as usual. The rest of the cast is so-so, but it really doesn't matter, as they're just there to be bumped off in interesting ways.
The creepy visuals are truly the star of this picture. The opening scene will leave viewers wide-eyed. A steel cable flies across a dance floor, cutting everything (and everyone) in it's path in half. Later in the film, a grand ballroom, which is in shambles after forty years at sea, spontaneously reconstructs itself around a crew member. This is absolutely amazing to watch.
Overall, this is not a great movie in terms of dramatic content. It was panned by most critics, but in all actuality, there are worse ways to spend a dark and stormy night.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Love Boat this isn't! April 3, 2003
Format:DVD
Any movie that can make you slide to the edge of your seat and cover your eyes in the first 5 minutes is going to be a good one, guaranteed! This movie is one of the best horror films that I have seen come out in a long time. The special effects are top notch, the acting is incredible, and the plot is good. I wanted to see this movie in the theatre, but just never got around to it. I bought it the day it came out and watched it as soon as I got home. I swear, I had to get up and turn the lights back on to watch it. One of the best things about this movie is that everything comes full circle. There are no loose ends just lying around. On the predictabiliy scale, this movie doesn't even rank. You never know what is lurking around the corner or sitting in the next cabin. The sets in this movie are among the best and rank right in there with the sets from The Haunting and Titanic. This is a movie I will definitely watch over and over and keep enjoying for a long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Cool! February 23, 2004
Format:DVD
First off, this film wasn't scary, but very unpredictable and many scenes were unexpected. I love to watch this movie over and over again. It was great. The wire scene was incredible and cool. This movie had everything-blood,gore,big explosions,violence,good acting and was fast paced. The wire scene is the best opening scene, along with D-Day in SPR. If you are easily scared and hate gore, don't see this. Buy and enjoy.
