Consensus: With a plot as creaky as the boat, Ghost Ship fails to deliver the scares.

Ebert & Roeper

A dumb movie with dumb characters doing dumb things and you have to be really dumb not to see where this is going.

Hollywood Reporter

A lame script, featuring sorry dialogue and a senseless story, is more likely to provoke laughs than screams from its intended audience.

David Germain
Houston Chronicle

Carly Kocurek
Common Sense Media

This creaking vessel of a movie can't spice a routine story with genuine horror.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

It's moody and atmospheric, with a lot of solid performances from the cast.
