Debut Effort Keyed on Adolescent Fears Raises Questions, 17 January 2007
Author: mcgiven from United States

Haunted Boat, Olga Leven's first feature, keys on the fears of six adolescents as they become stranded out in the ocean. Production values are amazingly good for a low-end video production. The sound design and the music lead us nicely through the story and bumps up our fears and expectations at the right moments. The story is a bit convoluted and not for those expecting a rational linear tale. Yet when one gives into the fragmented nightmare structure, the story takes on an interesting form. It's a journey of survival for Christina, the lead character played by Courtney Scheuerman and we began to empathize with her fear, that of dying alone. These six people are marginally dysfunctional and this adds to the conflict. The sudden drowning of weak-hearted David (Travis Hammer) breaks up their close ties and turns them against one another. Divided, one by one they succumb to their worst fears. In the end, in spite of the turmoil and chaos, there will always be friends on who you can rely -- whether they are real or only exist in our imagination.

This is a film with multiple interpretations and leaves the viewer in the precarious position of having to figure what happened and how it ended. Haunted Boat is a heady film with an eerie underbelly that embodies many of the problems and fears young people face. It's the type of film that should generate a healthy word-of-mouth as well as discussions about our own fears, philosophies, and attitudes. And for the young male adolescents there's plenty of bikini-clad eye candy and brief nudity.
