The theatrical poster for Ghost Ship was inspired by the poster for Death Ship (1980), another film about a haunted ocean liner. See more »
Murphy states that, in the sixties, the Italians could not compete in speed, so they built their ships to be extremely big and luxurious. That is factually wrong for two reasons: first, since the 1940's, Italian ocean liners were known, precisely, by their speed (the most famous of them, the SS Rex, held the Blue Ribbon award for four years). Second, Italian liners built immediately after WW2 were indeed very luxurious, but not very big. The SS Andrea Doria (after which the film's Antonia Graza is modeled after) was barely 200 m long, a full 100 m shorter than the largest ship of its time, the RMS Quen Elizabeth. See more »
I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.

The opening logos are tinted brown, and the typical Warner Bros. logo is instead an intentionally chintzy 60s style logo. All this ties into the infamous cruise ship opening. See more »
The film was released in Germany in both its uncut form (rated "Not under 18") and in an edited version ("Not under 16"), which misses many gory shots (i.e. from the wire scene in the beginning, the squashed diver or the "hooked up" singer). For commercial reasons most cinemas showed the cut version. See more »
Ghost Ship is by no means the worst horror i have ever seen in fact some parts of this film are quite entertaining, the problem seems to be some of the poor digital computer special affect that make this film look like a bit of a B Movie. Some of the affects are good expecially the opening scene where we see the crewe of the ship killed by a steel rope.The acting is ok and the characters are good so that when they are picked off one by one ,you care. There are a lot of question left unanswered though and in stages the scenes apear to have been put in any old order . If you like Horror and dont want a film you have to think about too much then i sugest you give this a go. 6 out of 10.
