WHERE TO WATCH Haunting of the Queen Mary (2023):


“For all of the positives that make Haunting of the Queen Mary float it’s sadly weighed down by narrative anchors and confusing flashbacks that cause this movie to ultimately sink. A film with promise but sadly one that falls a little short of its potential.” 3 out of 5, BackToTheMovies.com

“The film’s problematic running time doesn’t present too much of a good thing — it’s an imbalance between what’s eye-catching and what’s not so inviting. Luckily, that ratio skews positively toward an intriguing hybrid of brutal slasher deaths and seafaring terrorization that harps on inescapable curses.” 3 out of 5, Bloody-Disgusting.com

“If you’re a fan of visual storytelling, rich aesthetics, and innovative scare tactics, then, by all means, step aboard. But be warned: you may find yourself drifting in a sea of confusion, longing for a plot that’s as cohesive as the stunning visuals. It’s a haunting cruise filled with beauty, but one that leaves you wondering if the ship’s compass wasn’t perhaps possessed by a mischievous spirit.” 73% NOFSPodcast.com

“With judicious editing and pruning of the script, Haunting of the Queen Mary could have been one of the summer’s better genre films. As it is, its technical chops outshine its muddled script, which wastes some good ideas and leaves a generally capable cast with little to work with. In the end, it becomes yet another film that’s watchable but should have been much better.” 2.5 out of 5, VoicesFromTheBalcony.com
