A voyage from New Zealand to Fiji aboard a large sailboat seems to be a perfect holiday until a mysterious mist appears on the second day and a distress call is picked up on the radio. Going to the aid of the ship in trouble the yacht comes across a drifting fishing boat, and find one lone survivor. When this man is taken aboard the yacht strange events begin to happen and people start acting as if they were not themselves. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

User Reviews

It was OK
27 September 2007 | by dustinhunter707See all my reviews

OK well I was expecting a little bit of entertainment from this movie but not much because after all it is a straight to DVD horror film and I watch a lot of those and I am often disappointed all the same but I watch them anyways just to know if they are good or not. But this one was rather good compared to some of the other garbage that I have seen, I enjoyed the horror elements even though they were rather brutal and uncalled for at times. The ending was sort of confusing, but I liked seeing the face of the real ferryman rather than just a knife through the whole movie. Overall I gave it a 5 out of 10 because it was sort of entertaining, but some parts were just weird and unnecessary. I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're bored then go ahead.
