Storyline

Stu, Tommy, and Gus decide to celebrate their new business venture with an exotic vacation to Bermuda. It's the perfect getaway until Stu begins to obsess about the Queen of Scots, a ship lost 50 years ago to the Bermuda Triangle. Determined that the lost ship is out there, filled with the former occupants' riches, Stu charters a boat with a desperate captain and his beautiful first mate, Charlie. When their boat hits a dense fog they become lost and panicked until they see something slowly creeping through the curtain of fog, it's the Queen of Scots. After boarding the ship they discover that something happened to the passengers, something horrible, and it's starting to happen to them. Now they're trapped in a ghost ship, in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle, and there's no way out! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Ghost Ship (2002), released in cinemas the year after this TV-film came out, is sometimes considered a remake of this, but it is more likely that both films are simply independent seafaring homages/ripoffs of The Shining (1980). See more »

Goofs

A caption at the beginning states 'Sargasso Sea, South Atlanic Ocean'. It's actually in the North Atlantic. See more »

Quotes

Tommy Devane: I'll tell ya one thing never changes about Stu though, it's like you said, whenever he plans the trips, we always end up in the oddest places.
Gus Gruber: Yeah. Remember the uh, golf course in Alaska?
Tommy Devane: Ah, how can I forget? I almost froze to death!

Surprisingly good TV movie (review might contain spoiler-like elements)
23 February 2005 | by apecatSee all my reviews

Let's face it, this movie *is* a cheap shining-rip off, but somehow it felt pleased watching it. As someone stated earlier on this board, this is a family-friendly movie, no bad language etc, which makes it even more suitable for TV use. This typical American TV movie format is boring and it certainly makes it challenging for the filmmakers to do something even remotely original. I find it hard to put into words, but there was something quite fresh and genuine in this, I dunno if this is a training work by someone in film school, but I must say that the basics of story telling were all right. The film doesn't pretend to be more than it is, the lousy cgi and a few mistakes (i think I saw the shadow of a camera in a stairway sequence) feels OK in this type of movies where filmmakers usually misuse their talents a lot more with tons of low budget action sequences.

The soundscapes were sometimes a bit overdone, the sick whispering didn't leave the "walking in alone in the dark"-sequences alone for a second, with a bit more patience, silence mixed with normal sounds that one could expect to hear on a shipwreck could have been even original. I watched the movie from a Scandinavian r2 DVD edition that featured stereo ac3/dolby digital sound. Unfortunately I had to use headphones, I can't say anything about the usage of Dolby Surround.

The actors were used well, not the best ones around, but by limiting their communication to TV-series type dialog you had the characters in their right elements and on the very edge of what you can expect from them.
