The Flying Dutchman: What did I just watch?
30 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Flying Dutchman otherwise known as Frozen in fear is a not so thrilling thriller starring Eric Roberts and Rod Steiger.

It tells the story of a mysterious mute painter and his tragic past. Well, I say that but the story is so muddled I'm not sure if it can really be considered as such.

It takes a really special breed of film to a get a 1/10 from me. Such a rating suggests that a film has literally not one single redeeming feature and with this movie that's very accurate.

Dull, outstandingly boring and with a plot that is so cliched and so messy when the credits rolled I reached for the aspirin.

Not "Thrilling" enough to be a thriller, not dramatic enough to be a drama and where the hell they got horror from I cannot figure.

Avoid like watching it will give you herpes.
