Summary: Excellent 'B'-grade Horror
Barring something like 'Alien', which transcended the genre, about all you can ask from a horror flick is that it be scary and not too contradictory. Ghost Ship is scary. The opening scene is also bloody in the extreme, though the rest of the movie is strangely lacking in gore. Best of all, Ghost Ship sets up the rules by which it will operate, and then it follows those rules. People die, of course, but they don't die stupidly (for the most part). The ending has the usual twist, but it's a clever usual twist. And, metaphysically speaking, it's quite satisfying.
