Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Likeable, down to earth characters that act somewhat like real people. Spooky scenes on the ship are well shot and have a great ambiance. An interesting paranormal mystery that has an air of classic literature to it. A slow burn, but has a good enough momentum to keep you engaged.” Geek Legion of Doom

“Young’s film is a strange tale […] it’s a movie that feels as though it should belong in another era, such is its usual tone that’s in stark contrast to much of today’s fare. But, there’s no shame in being different, and if there’s a shoo-in of a shallow plaudit to bestow upon it, it’s that of being satisfyingly likeable.” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit
