Critically Panned but Spooky as Hell ‘Ghost Ship’ Releasing on Collectors Edition Blu Ray

Fans of the 2002 ghostly marine film Ghost Ship can look forward to a collectors edition blu ray releasing September 29, 2020 via Shout Factory.

Ghost Ship, which The New York Times derided as “an incoherent supernatural thriller that would like to think of itself as a Halloween-ready horror fusion of The Perfect Storm and Titanic,” wasn’t particularly embraced by critics or audiences. But the opening death sequence was remembered by many horror junkies for its chilling set-up.

The collector’s edition blu ray is packed with bonus features including:

  • NEW This Isn’t Real – An Interview With Actor Isaiah Washington
  • NEW Dark Castle At Sea – An Interview With Producer Gil Adler
  • NEW Every Body On Board – An Interview With Makeup Effects Supervisor Jason Baird
  • NEW Audio Commentary With Director Steve Beck
  • Max On Set: Ghost Ship Featurette
  • Visual Effects Featurette
  • A Closer Look At The Gore Featurette
  • Designing The Ghost Ship Featurette
  • Secrets Of The Antonia Graza Clips
  • Mudvayne “Not Falling” Music Video
  • Theatrical Trailer

Order the blu ray via Shout Factory here or via Amazon here.
