INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE - An all-star cast, including DARKEST HOUR Oscar-winner Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimer from MARY POPPINS RETURNS, swim into the murky waters of seafaring horror in a shocker lurking in the shadows of the Marie Celeste ghost ship legend. Written by Anthony Jaswinski, scripter of the shark suspenser THE SHALLOWS, and pitched as “THE SHINING meets THE CONJURING”, the supernatural chiller centres on a struggling waterfront family tired of working for an unscrupulous boss. So they buy an old ship with the hopes of starting a tourist charter business. But after sailing into isolated waters, the ship’s terrifying secrets start surfacing.
