Editorial Reviews

Daniel Gillies of Spider-Man 2 stars as an American attorney in Japan whose childhood trauma has left him with a crippling fear of the ocean. But when he begins a dangerous affair with the wife of a wealthy client, a sunset boat trip will reveal the violence and vengeance that waits just below the surface. Ryo Ishibashi of Audition and The Grudge co-stars in this creepy shocker adapted from the short story by legendary Japanese horror novelist K“ji Suzuki - creator of Dark Water and The Ring / Ringu series - where the ultimate nightmares come to life aboard a Dream Cruise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terror from the murky blue October 1, 2007
By Simon
This is an installment from season 2 of Masters of Horror. An American living in Tokyo is having an affair with his client's pretty wife. When the husband finds out he takes them in his yacht to confront them on the open sea. But restless spirits return to seek vengeance from beyond the grave.

I believe this is the second show of the series to be helmed by a Japanese director and filmed on-location in Japan, the first being last season's controversial 'Imprint.' Compared to that 'Dream Cruise' is a much more conventional horror experience, though still an effective one. If you've ever seen other Asian horror films you know how creepy vengeful spirits can be, and there's some good scares and nerve-wracking tension here. It helps that all the players are linked to the same sin, and that each has an equal chance of falling to the spirit's wrath. And if death by drowning doesn't sound pleasant to you, there's even more to be scared about.

Whereas other MoH installments have played up the camp, gore, and sex in lieu of actual scares, Dream Cruise contains little-to-none of the above but did keep me in decent suspense till the end (where admittedly, the ending gets predictable). There's no new ground broken here, but there's a satisfying evening rental and a possible spot in your horror library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your parents love boat October 5, 2007
I've tried to figure out how to start this review nearly four times. But let me just say that this edition of the MOH Series is without a doubt the scariest one of the bunch out of season 2 (possibly season 1 as well).

It deals with a vengeful spirit of a woman whose husband has an affair and then kills her on his boat for his new lover. She is then tossed over board and never seen again... until about a year later when all the guilty party are on the boat and 'surprisingly' the same spot where she was killed. Anyways... thats the plot jist... now lets get to the good stuff!

Shes a vengeful spirit who is looking to exact revenge upon her ex - husband, and the woman that he killed her for and the man that is sleeping with her now. (pretty screwy love triangle). Oh and I didn't mention that the man who is on the boat has a fear of water from his own brother being drowned many years before and sees his ghost haunting him too? Oh, ok... then I did now.

Without giving too much away, the scares in this one are far more abundant than any other episode thus far. It will seriously creep you out beyond no end and make you think twice about entering the water - or a bathroom. You'll know what I mean. I highly recommended it, but make sure the lights are totally off for the full effect. Why ruin a good horror moment, right?

4.0 out of 5 stars The dream cruise to hell November 13, 2007
Despite the listing here on Amazon and the box cover, Dream Cruise is actually the 87-minute version. When it aired on ShowTime it was cut to 60-minutes, but the DVD is actually the original 87-minute cut despite the listing here and the back of the box stating 60-minutes.

Going into Dream Cruise I wasn't sure what to expect. Over the last couple of years the Asian ghost story has really run out of steam. Asia has a lot more to offer the horror genre, but these films are popular there and the rest of the world. It's sort of like the American slasher movie. They seemed to dominate the early to mid 80s. While there were plenty of non slasher movies it really did seem like, that's all that was out there. Filmmakers found something that worked and milked it for everything it was worth and now that has happened to the Asian ghost story.

The last few Asian ghost movies I have seen after it was over I just felt like so what? It's the same story over and over again and it really has gotten to the point to where you can't even tell these films a part, but unlike the American slasher movie, I do feel as if the Asian ghost story can still work.

Let's face it Dream Cruise doesn't really offer anything we haven't seen before. If you're well schooled on these movies you should know how this one will play out. But it's about how you take these clichés and work it. And the makers of Dream Cruise are able to take a clichéd story and sort of make it work.

Jack played by Daniel Gillies is an American businessman working in Japan; he's also having an affair with Yuri Saito played by Yoshino Kimura who's married to Eiji Saito played by the very cool Ryo Ishibashi who happens to be a client to Jack.

3.0 out of 5 stars JUON STYLE HORROR September 20, 2010
For those who like creepy young dead boys and dead women walking funny, this is your movie. Jack is a lawyer in Japan. He is being haunted by images of his past when his brother Shawn drowned and he couldn't save him. He is also having an affair with his client's wife, Yuri. The client, Ejii (pronounced A-gee) wants to meet with Jack about business, and you guessed it, on a boat. While out in the ocean Ejii drops hints that he knows about the affair to the point of making everyone uncomfortable. When the boat dies in the water, someone has to go in and clear the seaweed from the props. No sex, no nudity or Japanese school girls being groped.
