  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    Sympathique film qui ne baisse jamais d'intérêt et de tension... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    When it moves it rattles, but remains too literary all in all...

  5. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    Val Lewton can do no wrong. RKO told him to make a film called "Ghost Ship" and he turned it into a thought-provoking treatise on the nature of authority and despotism and the need for constant vigilance in the face of demands for unquestioning obedience.

  6. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    "El barco fantasma" por un lado es el testimonio de un hombre enfermo con la autoridad. Por otro, el testimonio de un hombre paranóico. Robson grafica una historia sobre el enfrentamiento de dos personas que parecen ser parte de una historia cíclica. Tal parece que la suceción de rangos incluye también un historial de demencia y que por cierto se justifica a partir de los antecedentes sobre la orfandad o la soledad.

  7. zondabez's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    Filme realizado na linha de produção baixo orçamento da RKO, "The ghost ship" coloca frente a frente um jovem marinheiro e um lobo do mar que não aceita sua autoridade questionada e que, paulatinamente, caminha para a loucura. Uma trama simples capaz de criar suspense a partir, especialmente, do som - como a 'voz da interioridade' e a trilha sonora - e do seu contraponto - o silêncio. Vale a sessão B da tarde!

  8. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    The unseen and paranoia are key elements in this horror/mystery w/ a captain comparable to Ahab or Queeg.

  9. Dave's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere...it's what Lewton films are all about and this one delivers as usual. This is probably the among the "weaker" of Lewton's RKO output, but that is not a putdown. Every film the man produced at RKO is damn good. The story here is not as interesting as others, but it looks great. Recommended.

  10. Danny Kana's rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    A hidden gem. Lewton's haunting dialogue combined with an eerie mood set the tone for this thriller.

  11. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Ghost Ship

    The captain is mad and I’m the only one who’s noticed it. An original screenplay for a decent VaL Lewton production. If you want to, you can read the movie as a covert attack against Hitler. Recommended.
