Ghost Ship
(Gabriel Byrne, Julianna Margulies / R / 88 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview:The deserted 1954 luxury cruise ship Antonia Graza, thought to have been lost in the early '60s, is discovered floating in the Bering Sea by a salvage crew. As the crew members board the ship and start to tow it to land, they notice that weird, creepy, possibly supernatural things begin to happen.

Verdict:The sort of flimflam that would have filled eight paneled pages in the great horror comic book "Tales From the Crypt," "Ghost Ship" is better than you expect but not as good as you hope. But, then again, that could be bestowing too much kindness on it for in truth not even the best actors and writers can make up for a baboon in the director's chair; and Steve Beck is one sorry simian ! Aside from a very, very cool opening scene "Ghost Ship" sinks into just another dumb American horror flick so preoccupied with delivering its effects that it doesn't bother to make sense of its story.
