It's hard to do ghosts convincingly. They seem to need a lot more and better story than other horror "bad guys". AFA Ghost Ship, we did both enjoy it , dte—and I for one didn't mind not clutching my seat in terror the whole time.
As curiously undead says, a lot of movies in the horror genre push the blood and gore over everything else, which just leaves you with shock value. This movie did try to use the story and plot to scare you as much as the special effects, and I thought the actor playing the villain did an excellent job. Some of the others gave a decent performance, but for some reason the whole team dynamic didn't quite gel. You could clearly see the influence of my favorite ghost/horror movie, The Shining, but that's a tough one to equal.
Unfortunately I kind of killed that movie for myself by watching the remake—talk about bad casting….that guy from Wings was no Jack Nicholson.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
