| A decent horror flick...for the most part
This movie has a lot of 80's slasher cheese to it--I will freely admit that--but overall I think it is a pretty good movie. It is good enough to be added to any horror fans video library. The idea behind the movie is interesting. The whole haunted Nazi ship thing was really creepy (especially with the spooky ship used to make the flick). The cast did a pretty good job. The only thing that bothered me was the way that the initial ship collision was shown--no one bothered to explain how the 8 survivors got off their doomed ship or why a group spread out all over their ship would manage to get together on the lifeboat (and oddly they all seemed to know each other before the crash)! Maybe I shouldn't be so picky though. It isn't like I haven't seen cheesier horror flicks than this one in my life.

Watch "Death Ship" only if you are a die hard B-movie horror fan! It is worth a view.
