DON'T PAY THE FERRYMAN
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 10/03/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I'm surprised more horror movies haven't tapped into the legendary Ferryman story. This one doesn't take place on the river Styx but in the Pacific.
THE FERRYMAN is heavy on atmospheric mysticism and has a few disturbing scenes, and for a film of its genre, it's decent enough. The story focuses on some kind of spirit that has eluded the Ferryman for years by using a magic knife that allows him to jump from body to body. SLIDERS and INDIANA JONES' John Rhys Davies plays the first spirit who then manages to take over six more bodies from three couples on a cruise to Fiji. I also wish they would have used Chris DeBurgh's original DON'T PAY THE FERRYMAN instead of the horrible remake. But it's a decent horror film for fans."
Short on effective scares
B. E Jackson | Pennsylvania | 06/10/2010

"Make that short on acting skills as well.
The Ferryman is nothing short of an *extremely* underwhelming film. The entire first half is basically nothing but a big party on a boat containing unimportant and totally useless conversations between all the characters.
I've been disappointed by horror flicks before, but at least even the worst ones offer *something* interesting from time to time.
I can't recommend the Ferryman to anyone except the most dedicated of fans who admire scary storylines involving ships and oceans. Just a total disappointment. Even Ghost Ship was better than this."
One major chunk of not thinking things through
H. W. Stone | Atlanta, GA, USA | 03/16/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)
"It's always good to make sure the seller and product are kept apart, so that reviewing one does not affect the other. In this case the seller was prompt, logical, and delivered quickly, one of the reasons to buy here, but the movie was mostly interesting, some fairly good effects, and had a huge, central to the story flaw in the how and why of the title character's actions within the film. Down Under horror, interesting, but with a major flaw in thinking it through before they shot."
