s**t, I love this movie!! It's one hell of a crap film. I like the scene where this old lady eats some candy. I think it's  always a bad idea to eat some old s**t you find on a rusty ghost ship! I have a copy of this movie and I'm proud of it!

Well I finally tracked down a copy of this movie, I have been looking for it forever. I love this movie. Just a couple of days ago I bought the new movie "Ghost Ship" that too was a really great movie, quite similar in some ways. Neither movie is what I would call scary, but they have a certain attractive creepiness to them that catches my attention.

HA!! I didn't bother to look at the back to see who was in it. But when I saw GEORGE KENNEDY in the opening credits I knew I was in for a STINKER!! This movie sucks.

My wife bought me a copy of this on video because I had never seen it and it looked spooky to her.  It certainly is cheap and stupid, but the premise is, admittedly, a pretty darn good one.  Nancy Holder wrote a fairly decent Ghost Ship novel called Dead in the Water the used a very similiar plotline to this movie.  Granted she also had characters and storylines, which this movie does not.  Great set though, obviously some producer had a friend with a spare ship or something and they said, "Let's make a haunted ship movie!" and made it up as they went along.  The highest praise for this skull rated movie is that it has made me hungry to watch Shock Waves again, now THAT is a great Haunted Nazi Ship movie!  Review that one Andrew, please.

This movie was so bad, my brain hurt after I saw it. I just kept thinking "why was this made, why, why does someone wish me to go through this torture?" I still don't understand, I probably never will.

Oh God.  This movie totally sucks.  Did anybody else notice that propaganda film with the little man dancing and singing on the piano was in English?  I thought it was a Nazi interrogation ship, and I was under the impression that Germans spoke German.  Maybe I was wrong.  Overall, watching this movie is a scarring blistering experience.  My friend has the movie poster, if that matters.

i was eight years of age  when i saw this film, late at night, on my own, i was fascinated at the time by the shots of the engine room and the shot of the front of the ship cutting through the water, actually these scenes have lodged themselves somewhere in my brain and pop back from time to time, i hadn't a clue what it was about other than a ship killing people...i got the video out recently 19  years later, and liked it in a nostalgic kinda way.

I have this film at home. Death Ship really isn't that bad of a movie. It might even be considered a classic of B- Moviedom. Still, the acting is that of an amateurish level.

This movie was ultimately horrendous!  From the bad acting, to the bad the bad script.  The screen writer should be shot!!!  George Kennedy is one of the worst actors I've ever seen.  Whatever money that was spent on this movie, would have been used better if it was thrown overboard, at least it wouldn't have gotten spent on that oh-so-obvious blow-up doll).  I give this movie a -1 out of 10.  Even for a B-movie, it's craptastic.

This is without doubt one of the finest films ever made.

Did the German navy make childsize uniforms?

Also did anyone notice the fact that even though the
Captain is wounded and out cold no one bothers to change him out his filthy and soaked clothing?

It was a 80's film, it was pretty good for the time it was made. I actually loved it growing up, so much so that I've started writting a sequal script myself.

I love this film, it's one of my wife's all time favorites! It's similar to "Shock Waves" which was released in 1975, starring Peter Cushing and John Carradine. She also like's Lucio Fulci's "House by the Cemetary" can you review this one, please?
