Editorial Reviews

When a group of environmental activists board an oilrig to broadcast their protest to the outside world, they find the entire rig abandoned. A hidden video camera is discovered revealing that the entire rig's workforce has been gradually wiped out by an evil entity, which uses the bodies of the living and moves from person to person, leaving the host dead. Locked in a battle of survival, they begin their search for the spirit. What they don't know is that this spirit is now one of them.

By Jeffrey Leach HALL OF FAME on July 21, 2003
Format: DVD
When I saw a movie blatantly attempting to cash in on the questionable success of "Ghost Ship," I knew I needed to sit up and pay attention. "Ghost Rig," originally entitled "The Devil's Tattoo," (a title they should have stuck with considering how much more sense it makes) is a Scottish straight to video production made by people who obviously knew nothing about how cheesy "Ghost Ship" was. I went into this one fully expecting to hate it with a passion. They replaced a ship with an oilrig? Big deal! If they relied on the spirits of dead oilrig workers to scare the audience, "Ghost Rig" would be little better than "Ghost Ship." That was my first mistake because this movie is decidedly different from "Ghost Ship." Even more surprising, and this is surprising, is that I actually liked "Ghost Rig." I know, I know. I don't understand how it happened either.
The plot of "Ghost Rig" is simplicity itself. Ten environmental activists calling themselves Action Planet take over an abandon oilrig named Janus. The owners of the rig plan on demolishing the thing and letting it fall to the bottom of the sea where it will slowly become a reef. Action Planet wants to stop this egregious action, claiming that this plan will cause more damage to the ecological cycle of the sea. The activists fly in on a chopper with the notion of squatting on the rig, thereby forcing the authorities to pay attention to their demands. We know this because members of the group film several video segments of themselves on the platform, planning to release the tapes to the media and hopefully gain supporters amongst the general public. Unfortunately (and there is always an 'unfortunately'), the weirdness begins quickly with the discovery that the rig's maintenance crew has mysteriously disappeared.

Ghost Rig is about a group of environmentalists who decide to bunk down on an old abandoned oil rig to try to prevent it being sunk into the ocean. Soon after the group arrived they start dying one by one, and like in most survival horrors it soon becomes a race to escape. The gimmick of this film is that there is a evil Spirit on the rig and it go from host to host killing the former host as it leaves, this created paranoia and distrust among the characters as they never know who the Spirit is in.

You will not really see anything you have not seen before with Ghost Rig, it is a survival horror and that is pretty much it. However the rather nice location of an oil rig, something which is not used in to many movies, and a few twist and turns change things up enough for the movie to be interesting. Now if you are looking for blood and gore you will not be satisfied with Ghost Rig, the evil entity do rack up a body count after a while but there is not much gore, however the film do have a nice atmosphere and while I would not call it scary it is entertaining.

As with all low budget horror movies my expectations for this movie was rather low, I was however positively surprised by Ghost Rig. It is not a great film in any stretch of the word but it is rather ok. I think there was some sections of the film which where to drawn out, and at times the film could get a bit confusing, but all in all I think that Ghost Ship is pretty good.

If you are looking for a bit different but still following the typical script survival horror then you might want to give this film a try, especially if you can find it used or cheap, Ghost Rig had some problems and it is obvious that it did not have the biggest budget in the world but it kept me entertained for the one and a half hours it lasted and I consider it a good buy.

In a nutshell, 10 people trying to save the planet by taking over an abandoned oil rig are stuck on this oil rig with a creature of some kind that (to save money) you never see, instead it inhabits someone's body and kills the others. You never know where this evil creature is cause it jumps to a body after said person has been killed. Got it? We have the usual cast of characters and we do the usual dumb things (like, let's split and find so and so) The usual cast is the hero, the coward, the realist, the one who gets it etc. Not a bad bit of acting by all concerned but rather boring at times.

A group of environmental whiners occupy an abandoned rig in hopes of preventing it from being toppled over to make an artificial reef which would be bad for...the fish? Okay I'm still working on that one. Due to weather concerns, their helicopter leaves them stranded there on a rig with no lights and a missing crew (it would just be a skeleton crew anyway).

When Eric (Rory McCann) dies from a steroid heart attack, or maybe murder, some in the group want to abandon project "Occupy Abandoned Rig." Vincent (Jaason Simmons) the unlikeable leader of the group doesn't want to let a death or two get in the way of this world saving occupation.

Then the ghosts show up...well no. There are no ghosts on ghost rig. But if there were, I am sure they would be blue and scary like the DVD cover. The most shocking aspect of this film was the fact they made a sequel.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
