In the scene where Randall is surprises by the ghost of Jules in the playroom, before he gets surprised, he put his glass tonic on a table next to him. When he got surprise by Jules in a ghost appearance, he drop his glass tonic on the floor and it shatter into pieces. When Aaron and Dana go into the playroom after Dana saw Randall gets killed by the ghost on the video camera, the floor shows no glass pieces, nowhere to be seen. See more »
Saw this on Sci-Fi recently, and it is better than a lot of trash on that channel. Not for your average TV watching moron (obviously, for some of the reviews below), but not great, either.
While there are similarities to other horror films, the acting and filmmaking set this no-budget film apart from many other recent "Bermuda Triangle" efforts. Good performances by all, and good direction and cinematography. The script is smart about some things, i.e. characterization, yet falls short on other things, like explaining what it is all about. The resolution is lacking something, almost as if they were expecting to do a sequel, but there are some good scares. The atmosphere is creepy, and builds up well, but there is no payoff on many threads of the storyline. It seems like the script was rushed, in other words. Lance Henriksen is great, and Judd Nelson and the rest of the cast do well. The duo of "Fields" and "Danziger" are entertaining, and the interplay between "Danziger" and Henriksen in one scene was particularly fun.
Don't be fooled by the fools posting negative reviews -- check it out if it shows up again on Sci-Fi, or home video, whatever. There is one death that stands out in particular -- it involves the anchor chain on the ship -- very unique. The director also wrote it and edited, so perhaps he is to blame either for the strengths, or the weaknesses. I suspect, though, the flaws are budget or producer oriented. Top notch, low-budget, horror entertainment from some people who tried to approach the subject with some intelligence. It tends more toward the sort of horror from "The Shining", which is character based, and not so much the gore or camp side of horror. In the end, it is flawed, but worth a look.
