So was the guy having the old Nazi propaganda film projected onto him end up trapped in the film forever, or what really did happen to him?

Hehehehe!  No, that was Nick being projected on.  He drowns in the cargo hold about two minutes later.

This was a pretty awful movie, but it was also bloody hilarious.

Yes, this movie has some funny (and glaring) bloopers in it, but hey, it's a horror movie, that's part of the fun.  Overall, though, I thought the scenes on the haunted ship to be creepy and atmospheric.  If only they'd wrapped that cool atmosphere around a script that made sense! It's a shame this one isn't more liked, because the whole "ghost ship" genre has been greatly underused by horror/suspense film makers.

I have mixed feelings about this movie.  On one hand the atmosphere could be good, on the other hand, the movie blows ass.  The only part I liked was Mancuso getting drowned in the cargo hold.  Otherwise, ugh.  George Kennedy stole my soul.

This movie isn't all that bad.  I also don't know why you hate George Kennedy so much.  I always found him to be so bad he's good.

There was definitely something going on in this movie, but for the most part it was actually pretty boring. I found the atmosphere generated by the haunted ship to be pretty creepy, and the Nazi undertones added to that effect. On a somewhat similar note, the newer film "Virus" was far too much like this film to be of any value. If you see this, skip "Virus."

This movie IS stupid, however, I do think the haunted atmosphere and the Nazi overtones are creepy as hell. This movie creeped me out a little when I first saw it about 12 years ago, the repetitive shots of the hydrolics stayed with me I think. But the characters are all idiots, save for the head guy who actually gives a believable performance as a man who is trying to save his family. The swarmy comedian deserved a worse death, and, if I was to ever board a haunted Nazi ship that is obviously trying to kill me and others, I like to think that I would avoid DRINKING IT'S WATER AND EATING IT'S 40 YEAR OLD FOOD!!!
also: have fun counting the number of times the phrase "We have to get off this ship!" is said

Watch for the woman drowning in blood in the shower; moments later, Kennedy is seen carting away AN INFLATABLE LOVE DOLL COVERED WITH RED PAINT under one arm, which is supposed to be her body! Oh, MERCY!

This movie was fairly bad until Crenna and Mancuso found the Nazi room.  For a short time the film actually scared me.  Did someone else direct those 5 minutes?

I saw this on TV about 15 years ago and remember it being hilarious because it was so bad. Where can I get a copy to re-live this moment (seriously!!).

I have felt for years that this film is the absolutely worst, most unwatchable movie I have ever seen.
It came on TV in the late 80's a couple of times and I just could'nt sit through the whole thing .
The whole humourless atmophere of this film made me sick . The Nazi theme was just a cheap means of adding some sence of horror an already dismal excuse of a film.
I absolutely HAVE to see this film again . Next time I'll make myself see it in its entirety !

I recently saw this movie on video ($2 weekly) after seeing it as a late night movie last year
Things that annoy me about Death Ship:
-why are the kids in a different cabin to the parents? The parents are already convinced that the Captain is insane
-why doesn't the sister make that annoying boy take a leak in the hallway?
-why doesn't the Captain kill the two kids when he sees them in the hallway? He's already proved that he's pretty evil
Also, in the scene where Nick is having the Nazi film projected onto him and the good captain is trying to demolish the projector - why don't they look behind them and look for another projector?
I was also grossed out by the woman kissing that latex mask...but that's just me
