A British Sub goes missing at the end of WWII, leaving only one survivor. Everyone believes it lost to the bottom of the Baltic Sea, then 40 years later it reappears without a crew. The British government sends for the one surviving crew member (David Jason), who is now a marine biologist. With a new crew, Jason proceeds to trace the last known happenings on the sub. But this submarine has a life of its own and the new crew soon start showing characteristics of the old crew.Written by
The submarine used was a non-submersible full-sized replica originally built for the film 'U-571'. That model was supposed to be an American S-Class submarine modified to look like a U-boat; somewhat ironically, for 'Ghostboat' it was then modified again to play the role of a British S-Class.

HMS 'Scorpion' is supposed to be a British submarine, presumably (given her name) an S-Class. However, she doesn't resemble any Royal Navy submarine of the Second World War, looking far more like a late-war German Type VIIC U-boat. The only significant concession is that exterior periscopes have been altered to give it a more British look, but they are closer to what was on a T-Class submarine than on the S-Class. See more »
Unmitigated (rhymes with flight): but still better than "Black Sea"
David Jason as an ex-submarine lieutenant with an extremely wobbly accent who becomes a professor of something. He just happens to be the sole survivor of the sinking of HM Submarine "Scorpion", in 1943.
A demented Royal Navy Commander enlists him as navigation 'advisor' on a mission to recreate the last voyage of the 'Scorpion' in order to discover the solution to a time-space-anomaly that could be used as a secret weapon in the Cold War.
Look, do I have to go on? No. This movie is UTTER RUBBISH. How anyone has the cheek to present it as grown-up entertainment I fail to fathom (geddit?).
But it's STILL not as bad as Jude Law's 'Black Sea'.
