Trivia When the crew of the ocean liner picks up the echo of the approaching ghost ship on their radar, the close-up of the ship's radar imagery is a reverse-image video clip of the fog-covered "Skull Island", taken from King Kong (1976). See more »
Goofs At the beginning, just after the collision, the surviving characters are seen drifting on the ocean on a wooden platform. George Kennedy's character is plainly visible lying down with the group, even though he hasn't yet been pulled out of the water! He appears from below the water about two minutes later. See more »
