"Haunted boat" is a joke. When you read the plot it seems like it has potenial, but you see nothing in the movie. They add so much random crap, the ending makes no sense. The bad part is, you keep watching the movie expecting it to get better, or to even see anything that was remotely described in the "reviews". If you're seeing this movie for the horror, you'll be dissapointed. If you're seeing this movie for the plot, you'll be dissapointed. If you're seeing this movie for any other reason than to waste an hour and a half it's not worth it.

"Haunted Boat" started out as your average low budget teen horror movie, about a group of teens get stuck in a boat. But pretty soon it departs from the formula. Unfortunately, it's not in a good way. For a long part of the movie, they sit around telling stories that don't add anything to the plot. Some new characters are thrown in and strange things happen with no apparent logic and the end makes no sense. Perhaps if I'd watch it again things would fall into place, but "Haunted Boat" isn't good enough to watch more than once. And it's hardly worth watching even once. There are many much better movies out there. Not recommended.

I love cheesy horror movies. I've seen hundreds of them. Many are good, many are passable. Most at least have one redeeming feature. Not this one. This is one of the worst pieces of garbage I've ever had the misfortune to suffer through. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the ending made no sense. Unfortunately, most of the movie made no sense as well. Characters would appear and disappear for no reason; people told pointless ghost stories to pad the run time of the movie; somebody puked up weird insect things... I have been slowly trying to plow through my collection of 3,000 movies, and most of the time when they are this bad I've been turning them off. I just kept expecting more from this. The Lionsgate name usually means that at least some quality. Not this time. Stay away at all costs!!

Wow, was this a lousy movie. I LOVE B-Movies, and will happily pad my film collection with things like "Plasterhead" and "Jack O'Lantern". While those films may not be great, they at least delivery what they promise, some low budget thrills and chills. "Haunted Boat" offers little more than some head-scratchingly stupid 20 year olds floating around a small fishing boat for a couple of days and trying to act frightened. The basic storyline of "Haunted Boat" is that one of the kids was given his deceased uncle's boat as a gift, and takes a few of his friends out for a weekend of sun and swimming. Things begin going bad when one of the kids drown and then....well, I'm not really sure. Is there any haunting going on? I doubt it, new characters are introduced, some random stories are told, and one of the guys advises his friends not to poop in the bathroom (not sure where he expected them to go..maybe over the railing?), the director discovers the sepia/black & white button on his camcorder and tries some artsy shots, and this all leads to a seriously confusing ending.
Save you money, and your time and re-watch "Ghost Ship" for your nautical horror. "Ghost Ship" ain't great, but at least lives up to it's title.

Horror films fall into two camps for me - serious horror and not serious horror. Serious horror is focused on delivering good scares with mood, shock, etc.; it requires a highly effective director and story to pull off, and my standards are very high. The not serious horror is very different; the focus (in my opinion) is not necessarily on creating real scares through a sustained mood of dread, but more on a fun story, loose horror, typically young actors, some comic elements, etc. This movie is clearly in the latter category, and you must have that mindset going in to enjoy it. Be warned - its very low budget, and some of the acting is ok (and sometimes there's a very noticeable discomfort as an actor looks directly into a camera). But...on the good side, the dialog is generally good, there are no characters that I hate (which is often a downfall of low budget horror), some good comic parts, and its filmed on a boat, a fun thematic element to me.

This movie is obviously low-budget, but does have some creepy parts. Unforunately, the plot takes the viewer off on so many tangents, the end leaves you scratching your head for the sense of it all?
