Paula, (Renee O'Connor) an inspector for the Historic Trust, wraps up a successful and important project in the upper Midwest. On her way home to Chicago, she gets a call from her office and is asked to check out a new applicant. It's on her way anyway, and even though it's late on Friday, she takes a quick detour and heads to the site of once proud steamship along an industrial waterfront. The ships 400 foot black form looms against the sky, and collects dead fish in stagnant water near the pier. Moments after her arrival, her car is seriously disabled and her life is about to change forever. In the chaos that follows, she meets up with the self appointed caretaker, Vigs (Larry Joe Campbell) who is the odd caretaker on the ship. Making the best of a bad situation, she takes him up on his offer to spend the night in one of the cramped but historic staterooms. He invites her to dinner and bad beer. She gets sick from the food and retires to her room to sleep, but is awakened constantly...Written by
The ship used for both the interior and exterior shots actually exists. It is the SS City of Milwaukee, located in Manistee, MI. It happens to be a National Historic Landmark museum. More in keeping with the theme of this movie, it has also been used as a "Haunted House" ( both at its current location, and a prior anchorage near Hammond, Indiana) See more »
I greatly enjoyed the complexity of this film. This writer/director does such an amazing job with his films. Though they are not the huge, money intense flicks that most of us are accustomed to, they will leave you feeling exactly what Brauer intended, whether it be intrigued, satisfied, on the edge of your seat, or just plain happy. I believe it is much more difficult to create a great film when you do not have millions of dollars to aid in the creation, and for this I admire this movie. I love it when films make you believe you have figured them all out, and then toss a twist into the plot. If you are looking for a suspenseful, clever, and interesting film, look no further.
