Goofs

During one part of the movie, they have a camera shot across the deck of the cruise ship. In that shot the signature "Whale Tail" of the Carnival Cruise Line is shown. All other pictures of the ship are without that smokestack and do not resemble a Carnival cruise ship. See more »

Oh, PUL-leese
15 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

I watch a lot of movies but I pick and choose those that I review. I love cheap SciFi and Horror. Anybody who has read any of my other reviews knows that I am most forgiving of schlock and am more than willing to turn my brain off and suspend my disbelief. However, this wreched piece of trash appalled me. It did start out very well and I thought I might be in for a little gem. But NOOOO! It ran downhill faster than Niagra Falls, cumulating in the trashiest ending, that I just could not stomach. Ms. Lowery is the only redeeming factor after the opening scene. There, I said something nice.
