Directed by James Oxford [Other horror films: N/A]
Unfortunately, this television movie is little better now than when I last saw it many years back.
The biggest problem with this movie is that literally within the first two minutes of the film, you can guess what the plot twist is going to be, and you’d be right. Since the plot twist isn’t officially revealed until an hour and three minutes in, you’re stuck with people getting a lot of clues (and I mean a lot) before they finally figure it out themselves, and meanwhile, you’re bored to death. It doesn’t help that this Sci-Fi movie (yep, this was before that hideous name change) had atrocious special effects.
The gore was a little better than the other special effects, but there wasn’t enough of it to really much positively influence the film. As for most of the special effects, oh boy. Very little here actually looked anything close to resembling good. A lot of terrible effects here, which compliments the generic characters we get.
I won’t talk much about the performances here. The only character I thought was enjoyable, Nicholas Irons played. He wasn’t a great actor, but I liked the character. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa was somewhat fun, but his character was quite bland. Antonio Sabato Jr. was just blah, and leading girl Deanne Russo was terrible.
Ghost Voyage might have some charm if you can take the bad story, bad special effects, and bad ending. Other than that, though, I wouldn’t recommend it. Definitely not one of Sci-Fi’s better efforts.
