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.

Ghost Ship is a movie I remember seeing back on the shelf in the video store days but I for some strange reason never did rent it. So I went into it here on this new Scream Factory Blu-ray fresh and unsure just what to expect. I’ll say this much, it was at least better than I expected it to be. The movie kicks off back in the day when a tragic event coming down on a whole crew that is on a ship. This really does bring on some gore right out of the gate and that isn’t good news for the crew on this shit. From there we meet our cast in “modern” day and they end up running upon this old ship where all this bad stuff happened. As the title would give away right out of the gate, we have ghosts here and they are up to no good for the most part. What happens next feels very much like what you’d see in other movies from this time, but it’s still just good enough, even if some parts could be improved upon.

Besides having a cast of folks you just know are going to die in a matter of time, we do have what I’d call a strong female lead in Julianna Margulies. A few people in this cast are folks you probably remember most from really popular TV shows. Heck Julianna Margulies was from E.R. and another cast member Isaiah Washington is from another popular doctor show, Grey’s Anatomy. The movie does some cool things and some creepy things, but it also does find its self doing some of the same missteps you’d see in a lot of movies made in 2002. But as it is, Ghost Ship is a fun one and a movie that does need to be seen if you haven’t seen it. It’s worthy of the Collector’s Edition release and is full of cool extras that you will want to see.
