THE PHANTOM SHIP (1935) ** ½

Bela Lugosi stars in an atypical role as a grizzled one armed sailor working on a ship, the Mary Celeste. Someone is bumping off his crew mates one by one. Could it be the newlywed captain? The crazy first mate? Or even Lugosi himself? The plot’s full of red herrings and people with shady pasts. It’s more of a whodunit, so don’t expect a ghost story or anything. This was one of the first films produced by British horror specialists Hammer Studios. Based on a true story. AKA: The Mystery of the Mary Celeste.
