Tom Merriam (Russell Wade) boards the freighter Altair in San Pedro, where he meets Capt. Will Stone (Richard Dix). During that first voyage, Tom begins to suspect that Stone is crazy, but he also learns that the crew is fiercely protective of him. When fellow sailor Louie (Lawrence Tierney) is killed in a freak accident, Merriam suspects Stone. However, he has no proof.

    This is a strange confusing movie, which I'm not sure actually has any ghosts on the ship. There are so many "Ghost Ship" movies out there, it gets confusing.

    This is actually a pretty good film when you think what year it was made. Nothing to scary, just a good old school B&W film,. The captain of the ship is crazy and the new third mate tries to prove it to the crew and they are not having much to do with it. Good Suspense its worth 3 1/2 stars

    Not a great movie. The title Ghost Ship kind of makes you think you're in for some atmospheric tale of the supernatural, right? WRONG! The Ghost Ship is just some metaphor for a life of lonliness at sea for a half-assed take on Mutiny on the Bounty. A few of the characters were colorful enough to keep my interest for a few minutes but this wasn't Val Lewton's crowning achievement. Its a quick watch if you feel you need to watch that entire Warner Bros Val Lewton set but nothing anyone should actively seek out.
