Great 80's TV Movie Of The Week!
8 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a hard film to catch on the TV anymore. It was only released on video in the UK. The story is about modern day pirates terrorizing two couples on a large sailing sloop. Christopher Plummer and Jonathan Banks (as his demented nephew) are wonderful as the pirates. Christine Belford and Cliff Potts are only decent 80's TV actors, but they don't hurt the film's fast pace and exciting climax. Lara Parker (Dark Shadows) has one of her biggest film roles-- aside from Race With The Devil. She is just so beautiful and such an underrated actress. The entire film was shot at sea. Beautiful photography, Plummer, Banks and Parker make this 80's TV movie of the week a winner!
