Has anyone seen Ghost Ship? Is it any good?
I have not seen it but my mate saw it and was plesently surprised how good it was.
My R1 DVD will soon be for sale on E-Bay.
I thought it went rapidly downhill after the first 10 minutes.
Thought it was good, rent it or wait for it to go to the cheap bin.
yeh,not a bad movie.good surround sound.
pick it up cheap if you can.
Watchable but thats about all, IMO
its only a movie to see it ones but you might like it if you like these kind of movies.
Run of the mill horror flick, nothing special.
Worth a watch, but wouldn't buy it.
Disappointing. After a really promising opening it turned into a below average horror flick with little real tension or atmosphere.
But compared to its' directors previous film - the truly awful Thirteen Ghosts - it's a masterpiece!
Our review of the R2 disc.
definately NOT a good movie!
Very average. Made by the same people who did 13 Ghosts, which was better imho.
Since when did they last make a decent, scary horror film?
I think they've forgotten how!
And no, The Ring wasn't scary either.
Thought that Wrong Turn is excellent, very much disappointed with Jeepers Creepers 2... Ghost ship is average.
Final Destination (1 and 2) are both excellent and re-watchable in my opinion. Best I've seen since the first Nightmare on Elm Street and Salem's Lot - back when I was about 11 yrs old.
Freddy vs Jason was bordering on being too cheesy but I still enjoyed it.
Ghost Ship is pants......
The opening scene is ok but after that it is woefull - badly acted, poorly shot and terrible sound if you are watching it on a decent system.
Funky holographic DVD box cover though.
Final Destination 1& 2 - supberb.
I am looking forward to Cabin Fever although I think that got mized reviews.
I though Darkness Falls was scary and for a different type of scary film try My Little Eye - probably not to everyones tastes but a different film none the less.
I liked My little eye, aswell as most of the ones mentioned on here previously, including Ghost Ship. I guess it don't take too much to please me then
Have you seen Ring the original Japanese film that The Ring was a remake of? Ive not seen the original yet and believe its a lot scarier than the remake.
I thought Cabin Fever was OK, but not as good as Wrong Turn, which I really enjoyed. The Ring was overrated, imo, and the best thing about My Little Eye is the sound, which I have never heard anything quite like. The rear speaker output is immense!
I've had Ghost Ship for a while, but haven't had the time to watch it yet.
Since we are on the subject of The Ring, a mate came round to mine a few months ago with it on DVD. He kept going on about how he watched it with his mum and needed clean underwear afterwards.
After having heard so much about the original film, I put the disc in my DVD drive, and whacked the amp up. We watched a bit of it, and the first time you see the girl when her face changes, my mate just froze. I burst out in a fit of laughter.
So, I skipped back a minute or so, and played the same part again... at reference level
Needless to say, my mate was climbing up the wall when the scene was played again.
When the original version was played on TV recently, I watched it. I wasn't at all put off, and just think that The Ring (and Blaire Witch Project) was completely over-rated.
Thanks for the replies I think I'll give it a miss
Why not watch it and decide if you like it.
Yes i've seen the original. I didn't find it any scarier then the re-make.
Thought I'd try out watching My Little Eye on my pretty new 5.1 system today. Strange thing was, it wont output it as 5.1, when I press menu it says its outputting it as DD1.1 which seems very strange. Ive tried pressing the audio button to change it but it wont work. Anyone any ideas or am I completely missing something?
I liked Ghost Ship. Quite enjoyable, if not exactly what you'd call scary.
It'd rate somewhere in the middle of the horror scale of what's good and bad.
Will other disks with 5.1 soundtracks flag up on the receiver that they are 5.1? I've just checked my 'My Little Eye' and there seems to be only two audio tracks - 5.1 and then 2.0 for the version with the directors commentary.
if GHOSTSHIP , was featured in a dictionary the desription next to it would say STEAMING TURD
I haven't seen Ghost Ship but I thought My Little Eye was excellent. Very claustrophobic atmosphere and plenty of tension.
Yeah that was my first thought, so i checked at the time, and it swapped between 2.0 (commentary) and then 1.1 which is the actual film. If I run it in interactive mode, it runs at 2.0 (I THINK, if i remember rightly). Its really weird.
I immediately tried another 5.1 disc (had no problems before) and it recognised it fine and played it back in 5.1. On the back cover of my little eye it states 5.1 and its not some dodgy copy cause I bought it from HMV. Its the 2 disc special edition if that makes any difference.
I would really like to watch this in 5.1
