***Note: This is an early blurb about Ghost Ship from the beginning days of BHM. If you have a more complete review in our head,submit your own review!
I have two words for you: Opening Scene. In fact, these may be the only good words you hear about this movie. Ghost Ship has been described as formula, boring, unimaginative. Well, I like it but mainly because the opening scene in the movie is AWESOME! Really, it’s worth renting this one just for that scene, 100 best horror movie or not.
The rest of the movie revolves around an abandoned ship with creepy characters, hell bent on using the crew of a passing salvage ship to repair some hull damage – before driving them crazy and killing them. There’s a good ghost too, that bonds with Juliana Margulies and tries to help. If Julianna doesn’t get some better roles she’ll have to stick with E.R.
Maybe, in addition to a 100 best horror movies list, we should have a “100 best horror scenes” list. Think so?
