    San Francisco Chronicle

    Stupid, derivative horror film that substitutes extreme gore for suspense. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Although there are several truly jolting scares, there's also an abundance of hackneyed dialogue and more silly satanic business than you can shake a severed limb at. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Is the film worth seeing? Depends. It breaks no new ground as horror movies go, but it does introduce an intriguing location, and it's well made technically. It's better than you expect but not as good as you hope. show more

    Loren King Chicago Tribune

    An adequate horror movie for the Halloween season, but it too easily sinks into haunted-house-film conventions, even if the haunted house is decked out as an Italian luxury liner. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    About as frightening as Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Pureed, predictable conflation of ''Alien'' and ''Titanic'' and ''The Shining.'' show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Pretty much what you'd expect -- just another haunted house that happens to float. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Ghost Ship, which can best be described by altering one consonant in the second word, sustains the stylishness of its opening for exactly three minutes. show more

    Miami Herald

    Coincidentally, this is the second movie in two weeks about a haunted seafaring vessel ("Below" is the other), and if you see just one, this shouldn't be it. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    A big, incoherent bore, interesting only as an example of assembly-line movie-making gone awry. show more
