Plot:
One hundred and ten years after its namesake’s fateful journey, the Titanic III’s maiden voyage will land at the original site of the wreck. Although a faithful replica of the original, this mammoth cruise ship is built with the most advanced technology, ensuring that it has no chance of sinking.

Our review:
Titanic 666 was a pleasant surprise. Obviously, we’re not going to expect brilliant CGI for the ship and yet what we do get is perfectly acceptable for this level of low budget. The ghost effects are ok although there are no real scares to be had. The fact that the interiors of the movie were shot on the real-life Queen Mary ship also means there are no cheap-looking sets.

On the downside, there is some mixed acting but there is a lot worse in the likes of many cheapo films made by the likes of Scott Jeffrey and Mark Polonia and no one really stood out as cringe-inducing. Compared to recent efforts by The Asylum such as the messy Dracula: The Original Living Vampire and the really shoddy Devil’s Triangle, Titanic 666 is a minor step up. And compared to utter dross such as their mockbuster AVH: Alien vs. Hunter (2007) the company has come a long way in recent years. Plus, Titanic 666 is never boring like many of their time-filler movies that rely on actors in control rooms talking incessantly.

Other reviews:
“For a movie where social media influencers battle ghosts on a new Titanic — I mean, the movie is named Titanic 666, let’s go for it — this movie doesn’t ever seize on the pure ridiculousness of the situation. It’s a great idea sunk by the kind of effects that you could do on your phone…” B&S About Movies

“The special effects are rather outstanding. The only drawback is that the shots of the ghosts are panned away from rapidly, so you don’t get to see them on screen as much as I wanted. They looked good and more could have been done with them for sure. While I enjoyed the picture, there were a few small flaws in the narrative.” Horror Facts

“The only reason to see Titanic 666 is to verify whether it really is what it purports to be. It is indeed, so there you go […] To be fair, I’d rather re-watch Titanic 666 than the James Cameron film. The ship’s interiors look better than you might expect, but apparently, the Asylum did their best to cut costs associated with screenplay development.” J.B. Spins

Titanic 666 rapidly turns into a series of fairly standard jump scares that could still have been a lot of fun if the effects hadn’t sucked so badly. Even the way the ghosts move, via jump-cut teleportation, is silly rather than frightening. The result is the filmic equivalent of background noise. Titanic 666 is something you can put on as a distraction while you make dinner…” 1.5/5 Voices from the Balcony
