Charlie Winters: I was a sailor you know, for 40 years. Sailed the Horn 35 times. Many times. Night like this... we'd run before the wind. Me behind that big iron wheel. And the captain... standing her face in that watery hell. That old man feared nothing. Me and the captain... we came here when they gave him never another ship. They were cruel men... them that run the ships. Company men.
[pulls out a pocket compass]
Charlie Winters: The captain gave me this the first time I sailed the Horn.

Waste of Time and Money

I have to agree with the other reviews. And I LIKE bad horror. I especially get a kick out of bad 70's and 80's horror. I will take The Mutilator, Slaughterhouse Rock, or Don't Go In the House any day! Ever seen Inn of the Damned? Yeah, it's a piece of dung, but nowhere near as bad as this. This movie has no plot, little dialogue, awful pacing, just boring as hell. The whole movie is like a power-outage, all dark and lanterns, and NOT scary. I don't need things spoon-fed to me, but the movie does not explain anything! Where did any of the characters come from? Where is this set? Why is everyone a useless wuss... oh wait, I guess that applies to most horror. But seriously, I was eagerly awaiting all these folks to die just so it would be over. One of the most infuriatingly inane movies I have ever seen. Don't do it.
