"One of the Scariest, Most Original Horror Movies in Years." – Rob Blackwelder, San Francisco Examiner Finders keepers. Any abandoned ship floating in international waters can be claimed and towed to port by whomever is fortunate enough to find it. Or, in the case of one team of salvage experts, unfortunate enough. In this stylish, effects-packed chiller from Dark Castle Entertainment, salvagers trained for any situation imaginable come face to horrifying face with the unimaginable after boarding a derelict luxury liner. Julianna Margulies, Gabriel Byrne, Ron Eldard and Isaiah Washington are among the hands on deck who'll confront a seafaring collector of souls. Steve Beck (Thirteen Ghosts) directs this frightful chiller.

The characters here are interesting and you find yourself rooting for them as they find and search the Ghost Ship. But with twists, turns, and dangers around every corner they’re in for a scary adventure. Will anyone come out alive. I do like the surprises here, but I’m not the biggest fan of gratuitous gore - it has plenty. Not so much as to over power, which is nice, but enough to hook those who like that sort.
The story is interesting and keeps one engaged. I’m happy to recommend the horror and suspense fan. I think this is a good turn for a date night, afternoon of film watching, or scare fest.
The story concerns a team of salvagers headed by Epps (Julianna Margulies) and Murphy (Gabriel Byrne) who come across a decades old missing ocean liner whose occupants died mysteriously in 1962. That this is a salvage operation that goes poorly is an understatement. The ship contains ghosts, headed by a small girl Katie (the good ghost, Emily Browning) and various nefarious traps waiting for them. The sets are the main sources of wonder as you can probably predict the arc of the plot fairly accurately, though there are a few nice twists that work well even if you did see them coming.
This isn't a slasher movie or particularly a gore movie (though there is certainly some), but more of a suspense in a confined and creepy space movie. As such it's effective not because the acting, dialogue, or premise are particularly believable (I was annoyed by the seemingly shifting accent of Murphy, and couldn't believe the conceit that nobody in a professional group of mariners of any capacity had never heard of the "Mary Celeste") but because the sets and atmosphere are so very effective.
The DVD has a lot of extras, and the behind the scenes stuff and ship's tour pieces are quite interesting: the model of the "Graza" itself is extremely impressive in the light of day, as it was over 60 feet long! While I don't agree with the filmmakers that this will become a Halloween classic, I recommend "Ghost Ship" to those interested in a creepy and atmospheric story from beyond the grave, even though the ending is perhaps the most predictable of any film I have seen in the last twenty years.

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!.
- It has an exellent story witch keeps the tension until the end. I saw this movie already 6 or 7 times, and each time I ended at the point of my chair.
- That's the reason why this time I bought the blue ray version, to complete my collection of best movies ever (for me that is).
- Lucky for me it has Dutch subtitles.
