A salvage crew discovers a long-lost 1962 passenger ship (the Antonia Graza), floating derelict in a remote area of the Bering Sea. Realising the value, they decided to tow it in and make some money.
Ghost Ship is a very classy horror movie. For once, the producers decided to buck the trend and not use computer graphics for the special effects during the opening scene. They used good old-fashioned props and dummies. The result is amazing. The scene has a depth and reality that computer graphics simply cannot match at this budget level. It is also astonishingly shocking – this scene has never been done before.
The movie set is a feast of exquisite detail, giving a glimpse of the true opulence of these luxury liners. The producers based the Antonia Graza on the Andrea Doria, which was a real Italian cruiser in the 1950’s.
Towing the Antonia Graza to a harbour, things start to go horribly wrong. The salvage crew soon realise that they are not alone on this creepy ship. Before long they understand the nightmarish truth and fear for their very souls… A clever twist is the fact that the crew is trapped in the middle of nowhere. Nowhere to run. Who would come and help? The movie is atmospheric and even if you are not a fan of this genre, you will enjoy the superb set, attention to detail and the bizarre implication of the closing scene.
