Gorgeous, beautifully-shot The Shining meets Titanic ghost ship flick
Haunting of the Queen Mary’s trailer and premise of a ghost story set on the real historic Queen Mary vessel immediately intrigued me, but I almost skipped this one entirely after seeing its dreadful IMDB rating. I’m glad I didn’t as Haunting of the Queen Mary is a surpringly good and effectively scary horror film set aboard the real-life Queen Mary ocean liner that despite its straight-to-video-on-demand release feels like a big budget Hollywood blockbuster.
While the story becomes a bit incoherent in the second half, the stunning visuals – set during both the ships operation in the 30s and present day – brutal violence and pace make this one of the more enjoyable horrors of 2023. It is definitely one of the better ghost ship movies right up there with Val Lewton’s The Ghost Ship from 1943. Give it a shot if you dig historically-themed ghost stories.
Prepare to set sail aboard the RMS Boredom…
When I sat down here in 2023 to watch the movie “Haunting of the Queen Mary”, I had never actually heard about it. But I have to admit that I was immediately drawn in by the movie’s cover/poster art, and the fact that it was a horror movie that I hadn’t already seen.
Writers Gary Shore and Tom Vaughan, however, failed miserably to concoct a script and storyline that appealed much to me. The narrative in “Haunting of the Queen Mary” jumps back and forth between 1938 and the current day, however it utterly failed to make either of the two periods particularly interesting for the viewer. And the movie suffered terribly from an interior script and having characters that were as bland as tap water.
The jumping back and forth is done without much of any grace, and the end result is a rather confusing and messy heap of a narrative, and that ultimately made my interest in the movie wane with each passing minute. I have to say that I didn’t figure out if there was a point to the narrative or not, and I ended up giving up on the ordeal before anything could be revealed; not that it mattered at that point.
The acting performances in “Haunting of the Queen Mary” were adequate, taking into consideration that the actors and actresses virtually had nothing worthwhile to work with and bring to the screen in terms of characters, dialogue and narrative contents.
Visually then “Haunting of the Queen Mary” was okay. I wasn’t impressed with anything in particular, but the special effects were fair enough. And the few scenes of gore and mayhem made it semi-durable to sit through the boredom that is “Haunting of the Queen Mary”. The ship itself and the interior of the vessel was actually quite nice, and that does count for something.
I gave up on the movie with just 30 minutes left to watch. But by then I just couldn’t take any more of the boredom that directors Gary Shore and Rebecca Harris were bringing to the screen. And this is definitely not a movie that I will return to for a second time in order to finish watching it. I just simply don’t care about the narrative or the characters in the movie.
My rating of “Haunting of the Queen Mary” lands on a three out of ten stars.
