Despite the negative reviews on this one, anyone going to rent/buy this one this weekend? It comes out today and I was thinking of at least renting it.

Anyone?

The wife and I enjoy movies like this (it looked ok from the previews...) so we are definately going to rent.

"No, thats big o' me!"

Magic armour is good but it tends to lose its magic without warning. Many an ancient lords last words had been " You can't kill me because I've got magic AARRGG!"

Thanks for reminding me. It's Friday, there's popcorn to be popped, and why not add a Dark Castle release to the mix? I'm not expecting anything any better than a little gore and a few cheap jumps.

The first scene is a shocker, really cool but the rest - meh. Maybe a rental?

I'll have to watch this one on my own. If I make my girlfriend watch it, I'll have to promise to sit through one of her gawdawful Merchant-Ivory period soap operas. Posted Image
You know, Fred, if you keep your sense of humor like you do, you just might make it.

I think I'll give it a rental. Posted Image My wife and I thought "13 Ghosts" had it's moments... so I'm sure we'll get a kick out of this. Even if it is just the opening scenes. Posted Image

I saw it in the theatre. I won't be renting or buying it.
Movies I would purchase instantly if they were available in their correct aspect ratio:
Death Trap, Innocent Blood, The Shadow, and Remo Williams

I was going to rent it but the 12 or so copies were already gone by the time I got to the video store. I rented Below instead.

And before I get all the "You ended up with the better film" yada, yada - I was hoping for both. Kind of a terror on the water night. Plus, I'm a sucker for the "ocean liner adrift and abandoned" plotline.

I'm one of the 3 people that liked 13 Ghosts, so I bought this one in spite of all the bad reviews. I think of these as sorta the modern equivalent of all those American International horror flicks of the early 60s--decently produced B grade fun horror flicks. Maybe so bad their in a way funny.

Me and the wife settled in and spun this disc after tucking the little one in (6 yrs.old). My thoughts are definately a rental to at least appease your curiousity on this one if at all. But I wouldn't buy this one. What few scares there were, didn't do nothing for me. The sets were impressive as was the miniature ship used as the Ghost Ship. But that's about it. As far as the openining scene with everyone dancing, not bad. But the rest..... downerPosted Image

Anyone else?

Wasn't that bad. Since I'm the type who rents the really low budget horror movies that hit the video shelves, GHOST SHIP was a refreshing change. Better than your typical not-too-bright-teens-in-danger movies.

Can't say I liked it or not... as I didn't rent it!

I went to my local Rogers this weekend (big chain in Canada...BB's competition) and not only were all the copies out, but they had it marked as their "number-5" most popular movie. Posted Image

I'll try again later this week, methinks. Posted Image

Barely a rental, not a buy. It doesn't even have the redeeming horror make-up (13 Ghosts) that helps most of these flicks be interesting.

Even my wife hated it, and she's the resident spooky movie nut. It's actually worse than Resident Evil.

I bought it and I like it and the girlfriend liked it too. Coolest DVD case I've seen.

I rented it this last weekend. Not as bad as I thought it would be. I like it more than 13 Ghosts. Very cool extras.
