A group of salvagers are given the chance to set their sights on the Antonia Graza which disappeared over forty years ago. They eventually find the ship (in a pretty spectacular way) and go aboard. The past is present and the present is disturbing (to say the least). Intercut with scenes to explain the goings-on aboard the ship before it vanished this is a strong film and rates as one of my all time favourites. Many years ago I saw a film called Deathship and after seeing Ghost Ship I set about tracing Deathship on VHS (it is unlikely to be ever on DVD) and it still had it's moments. Ghost Ship isn't perfect but it is very close from my POV. It does contain gore but I don't feel a film needs gore to be successful. Another classic for me is The Fog (1979) which has so little gore but so much atmosphere that it works. Great film!

I watched this film, expecting it to be a typical teen slasher movie that seems to overload the blockbusters coming out these days, but i was pleasantly surprised. This has a great cast, seeing gritty performances from the ever impressing Alex dimitriades, and Desmond harrington, but all the cast bring a level down to earth approach to this bizzarre idea for a film. awsome sets on the ship give it a real eerie feel, and the more times i watch it there is more i seem to have missed. Very subtle twists, not overly gory, (appart from the first scene!) and a really enjoyable film, definatley worth a watch.

A lot of reviews of the various DVD and VHS editions of this chilling film have appeared. Some folks are snobs about the "horror film" genre, not one for which I have myself much taste to see regularly, since the supernatural tends to spook me out too easily. Frankly, what attracted me initially to this movie is the seafaring aspect. I love the lore of big 19th and 20th century powered ships, especially really large ones, military or civilian, such as the Antonia Graza, the ocean-liner featured in the fictional "Ghost Ship". I served as a sailor in the U.S. Navy (something that awakened me, as early as my late teens, to the sheer dastardliness of both the U. S. of A.`s and Britain`s imperialist ventures abroad), most of the time on a ship that was at sea a good deal in all kinds of conditions in all parts of the Alantic, Artic, and Indian Oceans (and in Antarctic waters, too); I was only at sea specifically in the Pacific during those years very briefly, on a quite large vessel (a supply ship that also served as a troop transport vessel) before being transferred to the Atlantic Fleet. These ships dated from years of construction and/or refitting roughly contemporaneous with that of the film's Antonia Graza. I was in a position to see all parts of the ship on which I served longest quite often, more so than most of the seamen of the crew, since my labours took me from the bilge right up to the top of the rigging quite a lot. That was mostly on a relatively small ship (a destroyer), so I really love seeing films of grandiose, humongous vessels such as the Antonia Graza of this movie.

All of the foregoing is simply to attest to my ability to size up the authenticity of the ship portrayal in this film (not to make a lot here of my few years of seafaring). The detail is well-nigh flawless!

Brilliant story and excellent soundtrack. I had seen it when it was first released but I just had to watch it again. Even better second time around. Really good ghost story and the villain was excellent. Great casting.

Ghost Ship, R1 DVD R-rated U.S release.
A huge passenger ship riddled with spooks is ripe for
salvage reward, easier said than done. One by one the
treasure hunters are tormented by evil...sea evil!.
Super slick production values, some tasty gore &
Karl Urban looking like Brad in World War Z (think it's Urban).
The picture quality's first rate, widescreen & fills all the screen
on a modern T.V. This release is uncut, as are most, all
except the German FSK16 release, apparently this one's cut,
the FSK18 is uncut though. Run time: 1hr 30min 35sec.
Extras: quite a few, check back of box, it's late-can't be typing all that!.

A lot of horror fans don't think too highly of this film, but I quite enjoyed my time on the Ghost Ship. Maybe there's nothing too original or ground-breaking about the type of horror it has to offer, but that doesn't mean it's not effective and entertaining. Certainly, believability is a weakness in a few spots, and I'm still trying to figure out how a couple of "facts" could have been even remotely possible, but the film does create an eerie atmosphere and doesn't mind spilling a little blood in pursuit of its ends.
I think I can safely say that the opening scene of the movie is rather unforgettable, and I greatly admire the effect the moviemakers were going for here. Rarely does a movie purport to take out untold scores of people with one swift blow, and it is most unfortunate that a lack of commitment to this potentially extraordinary scene sets in motion the very doubts and misgivings some viewers have of the real meat of the story. The method of mass execution used in this first scene is pretty hard to accept scientifically, but the real problem comes in the form of some very obvious mannequins lying among the "dead." The filmmakers try to salvage the scene by having the victims take a few moments to figure out that they are quite dead, and that works for me; unfortunately, they take this too far and end up making what should be a glorious bloodbath look a little silly.
The real story here concerns the crew of a salvage boat hired to salvage a mysterious old ship that a pilot claims to have spotted in the Bering Sea. What they find is an Italian ocean liner missing for forty years, but the great riches they discover onboard lead not to the paradise on earth they fantasize about but rather its exact opposite.
