The folks at Hollywood's Dark Castle Entertainment are polluting the high seas with this dead-in-the-water combo of The Shining and Titanic.

It's moody and atmospheric, with a lot of solid performances from the cast.

Three things can be counted on from Warner Bros. and Dark Castle's annual Halloween release: (1) a lot of spiffy special effects; (2) a fair amount of gore; and (3) not one single scare.

B-movies can be better than this.

There is a sense of predictability about the film after the promising start and for all its good intentions it never takes us on board with its mish mash of ghosts, mysticism and spiritual concoction.

Beck clobbers the audience with the most gruesome prologue I have ever seen in a horror movie and then settles the story into a routine ghost story and bloody body count.

The movie has few surprises for lifelong horror fans, but it'll keep them (or us -- I count myself in their number) happily diverted for just under 90 minutes.

Director Beck loses it, with techno-scored flashbacks (note: techno isn't scary) and blow-up-the-place gimmickry...

The final reel plots a course smack between predictable and sheer idiocy.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

It's a workmanlike production, with no surprises, no scares and no jokes - unless you count the demon that laments his job by saying he must gather enough souls to fill a quota.

Director Steven Beck builds his Ghost Ship with borrowed materials from all across the cinematic sea.

It should be mentioned that the set design and interiors of the haunted vessel are more than effectively creepy and moodily lit. So I just did.

effectively keeps things suspenseful even when faced with some hoary cliches.

As a candidate for scary-movie honors, this one hasn't a ghost of a chance.

Ghost Ship is better than Thir13en Ghosts--but we're talking incrementally.

The ship is ugly, the ghosts are boring, and the effects (with the possible exception of the cheese-cutter incident) are less than spectacular.

The setting is perfectly promising -- but this is the usual dumbed-down stuff, heading for the video bin.

It's clear from the outset that quality is never going to be an option...
