  • Plot and character rarely rise above functional, but the screenplay does have some intriguing psychosexual undercurrents, and [director Chris] Graham produces enough vigorous action to leave genre buffs satisfied, if not ecstatic.

Audience Reviews for The Ferryman

A horrifying experience, not because it was scary but because it was really bad. I hate the acting, I hate the script, I hate the casting. There's nothing enjoyable about this film. The scariest part was the animal cruelty I think. Please stop trying to make good New Zealand films happen, it's not gonna happen. This is just utterly embarrassing.

A good paranormal movie with a pretty cool plot.

Low budget shocker but with some tension and atmosphere which make it less forgettable than many.

This is actually quite good for a grade movie. Though the majority of the cast are no names, and the acting usually isnt special, its when the horrors begin where it really picks up. And it is bloody, very disgusting and pretty cool! ^_^ This is unusual story... an acnient spirit has survived for thousands of years by transferring itself into other bodies by killing its vitims with a special dagger known as the shifting blade. But now, "Death" has found it, and so it begins to haunt a young group which mistakenly 'rescues' it from the sea in order to survive... in some real brutal and psychopathic methods, tranferring itself from each crew member and killing them one by one. The cast should be given judos for pulling off the evil spirit acting, they all did pretty well, surprisingly. And the ending was a bit of a twist, most of you would think otherwise, but not expect what really happens. I reckon it was alright... though it was obviously "B grade" and does suffer for that, unlike some of the other quality stuff been release this year.
