I agree. I bought the DVD of it. It has a couple of graphic gore scenes but overall it's a good scarey movie. I like it 10 times more than I like The Ring, which I thought was pretty much of a let down, after I saw it.
I really liked the story of Ghost Ship, and I think Gabriel Byrne is pretty sexy. The Ring was ok. My all-time favorite scary movie is definitely Hellraiser. I was creeped out for weeks after I saw it.
I was dissappointed in The Ring, but I didn't see it, until it came out on DVD. Sometimes when you hear all the hype about a movie, you expect it to be so great, so fantastic, so scarey, and sometimes a movie just can't live up to the hype. Ghost Ship was just all around more my type of scarey movie.
To me, the all time scariest movie of all is "THE EXHORSIST".
