GHOST SHIP 猛鬼船 Movie Review


“Ghost Ship” is a horror starring teenage cast as three Mon sailors on a large fishing vessel, adrift in the dark, mysterious sea. They’re Kala, Yola and Solui, and their high-sea adventure begins when they discover the corpse of a woman, who turns out to be the wife of a mafia leader who controls the harbour. The sailors are in a tight situation, because they know that the woman they found was also the lover of Nick, the son of their captain.

Who killed her? How did her corpse end up on the ship? How will the mafia react? If news of the corpse found on board leaks, will the trio be accused of murder?

The three young men decide to hide the corpse, but things get horrifying when the corpse disappears. Soon, strange incidents keep happening to the sailors, and they’re convinced that there are more than just one ghost haunting the ship.  Worse, they can’t run, as they’re in high sea and being haunted by vengeful spirits.

Production / Cast

It is interesting to note that the fame Thailand horror movie is now taking place in the high sea. True enough, there is nowhere to run or hide if you encounter them onboard a ship. That is why the movie is favourably titled as Ghost Ship. 

This movie is a comedy horror movie. So between the frightening moments glued onto your seat, with nobody beside you ( unless you are with your friends or loved ones ), you are there to feel the horrifying scenes. For me, I do not think it was frightening. In fact, it was more laughter than horror. Compare this with a walk or ride through a haunted house. Once in a while, you get the fright but it was not that horrifying. 

With three main young actors, it definitely add more fun into the movie. In addition, I also get to enjoy the truly fast and catchy song cum dance from the three young actors. It is definitely more entertaining than a seeing a live concert. So keep laughing while you are being horrified. 

I rate this movie at 3 /5. Catch it in cinema from 7 Jan 2015.
