4.0 out of 5 stars Budget TV film of the year, 9 May 2012
This review is from: Ghostboat [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This reminds me of another film made around the same time, 1408. In both films, a man is trapped in a confined space which seems to have a mind of its own and has to confront his past. 1408 is the better film, with a far superior soundtrack. Ghost Boat is but a poor man's 1408 BUT that is a compliment. Ok, GB has a televisual pace, I wouldn't have minded if it had slowed down a bit at times. Oftentimes, the dialog was clunky ITV drama style, and the camerawork was sometimes poor. Effects are also sometimes dodgy. I'm not sure that Walkman was 1981 vintage, either. I think it was a later model. All of these flaws are ITV issues. And yet, it's very good if you forgive it a few things. Satisfying as a submarine and supernatural thriller combined, I didn't want it to end. People might think that this sort of thing is all cobblers, but maybe they haven't heard of the ghosts of flight 401. The initial British response to finding a supposedly lost submarine is somewhat nonsensical, more nonsensical than the supernatural, in my view. Given that this is only three pounds thirty nine pence at present, you could do far worse.
