There’s not many movies left that can mess with my head, but this is certainly one that does exactly that and then some.
So, I knew nothing about this feature when I first went into it, if I’m truly honest with you I remember just thinking that I was in for another ninety minutes of a typically average Horror film with a story that we’ve all seen a thousand times, with this in mind my brain was nowhere near ready for what lay ahead.

Miscellaneous facts about the film:
The film is set in Miami, Florida, but was filmed entirely in Queensland. Both Florida and Queensland are known as “The Sunshine State”; a nickname used on a road sign in the film.
It is possible to see the set of the ship at Southport Spit, Southport, Queensland, Australia on Google Earth. The exact coordinates are -27.97293,153.426902.
The recording of “Anchors Aweigh” used in the film is performed by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra. The aircraft carrying Glenn Miller to Paris in December 1944 disappeared over the English Channel in what is often considered a “Bermuda Triangle”-type incident.
The film makes many oblique references to The Shining (1980). The number 237 crops up, which was the same number of the spooky hotel room Danny was forbidden to go into; there are also words written on a mirror, a ballroom and an axe.
The “Aeolus,” the ship that Jess and the others jump to, is named after the Ancient (mythological) Greek ruler of the winds.
Lindsay Lohan was rumored to play the lead role. Martin Henderson was also considered for a role in this film.
