Not a masterful script by veteran John Pogue and collaborator Mark Hanlon... it nevertheless gets the job done, thanks to Beck, Tattersall and Hobbs, giving us a haunting little tale set on the high seas, just perfect for a Halloween viewing.
Os efeitos visuais são risíveis, os diálogos são péssimos e o filme simplesmente não assusta. Em contrapartida, a trama é desenvolvida de tal maneira que jamais perdemos o interesse no que está acontecendo.
It's refreshing to watch a horror film that's this unpretentious. It's not afraid to be profoundly cheesy...and it actually unsettles us with hideous grisliness rather than mere noises on the soundtrack.
The plot doesn't always make sense, despite a thunderous explicatory montage halfway through, but as a fresh setting for terror shenanigans, this Ghost Ship is somewhere between B minus and the High Cs.
Ghost Ship is produced with a certain level of restraint by Joel Silver and Robert Zemeckis, with a script credited to Mark Hanlon and John Pogue that draws upon many familiar sources and suffers only mildly from Narrative Deficit Disorder.
