13 Nights of Halloween:
Night #5: Ghost Ship

Tonight's movie is from those grisly horror-meisters at Dark Castle Ghost ShipEntertainment. You've probably heard of them, and of this movie. If you haven't, well boy are you in for a treat. The movie is called "Ghost Ship". Despite rumours it is not a remake of any single film though it may bear some resemblance in spots to similar themed movies and may be an amalgam of classic story types. These guys and gals at Dark Castle know how to rock a horror movie and you can bet money as soon as I see that they're involved in a film it is going on my wish list without so much as a single review or moment's thought to check it out first.

This movie has to have one of the best beginnings of a horror movie ever. It makes me drool just to think about it. K.N.B. EFX Group does an absolutely stupendous job as always on practical special effects. It's hard to believe I never really noticed that group's name on movies until only recently. They're a staple of the horror industry going back years and years. The company has their name on 149 movies in the IMDB for special effects. They range from today back to 1973. Of course they are not the only reason to see this movie. It's always good to see Gabriel Byrne in a movie, and Julianna Margulies was just excellent.

Mood: chillaxin.
Music: Meet the Creeper by Rob Zombie.
