The footage showing the movement of the Death Ship was the result of filming from a small boat moving around it. The crew shot for about an hour before the Death Ship broke down. The rest of the required shots were achieved by faking movement, as the broken down vessel was anchored and stationary. See more »
When the wire that lifts Jackie up the air is shown on the deck it is run through a loop with no sort of release mechanism present. However, after a few frames of him in the air you see that it now has some short of release mechanism for dropping him. Also, when the noose first tightens it is around his ankle, but after he is dipped you can see that the line is actually run down to his waist (really noticeable as he is rotating). See more »
This is one of those movies I saw as a kid, was terrified by and have been trying to find ever since.
I finally obtained a copy and watched it again for the first time in twenty years.
Until that moment though, I had sought out various opinions of the movie on the internet, the place where everyone has an opinion on everything, and I must say, the majority of comments I recieved were less than encouraging, however my mission would not be swayed.
Now, here I am having seen this obscure little flick again and I must say, it wasnt as bad as all that.
I think the sense of atmosphere and eeriness, while quite tacky, were effective and charming.
One scene that stood out in my mind since that fateful night I watched it as a child, is where Mrs. Morgan eats that poisoned lollie, turns into some creature, is killed and tossed overboard. Ah joyous memories
