All Aboard the Confusion Express!
So, last night I decided to dive into the 2023 horror flick “The Haunting of the Queen Mary,” directed by Gary Shore, and let me tell you, it was quite a ride… albeit a bumpy one. Imagine embarking on a ghost ship expecting a thrilling adventure, but instead, you find yourself in a maze of convoluted plotlines. That’s pretty much what watching this movie felt like.
The plot? Oh boy, where to start. So picture this: two storylines that are supposed to intertwine but instead end up playing a game of tag. On one side, you have a group of eager explorers, all jazzed up to investigate the spooky legends of the haunted Queen Mary ship. This part had so much potential – eerie corridors, mysterious shadows, the whole spooky ship vibe. It felt like we were in for a classic ghost story! 🚢👻
Sounds cool, right? But wait, plot twist! Simultaneously, there’s this whole other subplot going on about a vengeful ghost with a murky past tied to the ship. Just when you think you’re getting the hang of one story, whoosh, you’re thrown into the other! 😵
The plot jumps back and forth between these storylines, making it feel like you’re watching two different movies at once. Talk about confusing! The transitions are so abrupt, it’s like riding a haunted rollercoaster in the dark — you never know what twist or turn is coming next! 😵💫
Honestly, it felt like trying to solve a puzzle with half the pieces missing. I was all geared up for some serious spine-tingling chills, but instead, I found myself scratching my head, trying to piece together the story.
But hey, it wasn’t all a stormy sea — the movie does have its moments. The cinematography? Stunning! The visuals were like a lighthouse in the fog of the storyline. The eerie lighting and the way the camera played with shadows aboard the legendary Queen Mary were actually quite captivating— it was captured so beautifully, it almost made up for the tangled plot. Almost. 🎥✨
In a nutshell, while I was super pumped for a good scare, “The Haunting of the Queen Mary” was more of a confusing whirlwind than a horror masterpiece. But if you’re into movies that leave you more puzzled than petrified, and you dig some gorgeous cinematography set on a creepy old ship, it might just float your boat! ⛵️

Stay spooky and happy movie watching! 🍿👋
