Awesome ghost movie. I loved the story, the characters were cool. Who wouldn't love to go on a ghost ship? The only thing i don't like is that there's no part 2 and the other negative comments!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Ghost Ship has virtually no redeeming qualities. The plot is tired and poorly developed, the character development is sparse, and the gory scenes (including one that features a cable slicing 40-50 couples across a dance floor) do not even appear that scary. There is absolutely no reason to watch this movie unless you have a hankering for seeing people get sliced, diced, dismembered, and shot. Definitely NOT for kids.
