Archaeologist Nicholas Zavatero and his student find a vase with antique inscription on where Noah's Ark is hidden in the underlying monster called Tama. They decide to go looking, but things get out of control.

The final character to be "Processed" in the film should not have been. While this person did bad acts, they were not against any of the rules set forth by the Steward and therefore that person should simply be stranded where they were until they either broke a rule or did something to become "Returned".

I was surprised how good "Ghost Voyage" (2008) is. The plot concerns a group of nine people, mostly strangers, who suddenly awaken on a mysterious ship in the middle of the ocean. An enigmatic Asian steward appears and instructs them to follow the rules. Some do, and some don't, to their own peril.
Although quite a bit of the CGI is questionable and the plot is predictable from the get-go (think "Carnival of Souls" or "Purgatory"), the emphasis on character wins the day.
At about 90 minutes the film moves right along, maintaining your attention, with a nice increase of suspense toward the end.
Shot in Bulgaria, the film features a nice smörgåsbord of worthy European females, starting with the girl-next-door brunette protagonist, played by Deanna Russo, followed by the blond ghost seductress, played by Jasmina Toshkova.
The possibility of redemption for those who have ears to hear is hinted at early on and, believe it or not, the culmination of this aspect brought tears to my eyes. Excellent!
