Cruise Ship Horror
10 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Carl Kolchak(Darren McGavin) is assigned on a cruise ship to do an expose on the singles scene, but instead(and of course!) gets involved with another supernatural case, as it appears that one of the passengers is indeed a werewolf, a cursed lycanthrope, and only Carl, with the help of blessed silver bullets he uses in a convenient rifle, can stop him, assuming he isn't locked up by the skeptical and irate captain. Good location and premise are used well, with the usual effective humor, the only problem is the horrid makeup used on the werewolf, which hurts its effectiveness, but episode still manages to entertain in spite of this.
