    Death Ship, no fucking contest! That's like having a yacht compete against a dinghy.

    I'll wait until I can see DEATH SHIP before voting...but I didn't care for GHOST SHIP at all, so I'm thinkin' I'll be voting against it.

    Love them both. Has been a while since I have seen Death Ship. I'm voting Ghost Ship. I have watched it over 4 times.

    I soooooo want to vote Death Ship, but I'll hold off since it's been ages since I saw it. I can't get my mind around the idea that Ghost Ship is better though.

    Even though I can't say either were ALL that good, I have to vote for Death Ship because it was first out of the shoot, and 26 years later, I still remember scenes from it pretty vividly...It hasn't even been a year since I saw Ghost Ship, and can't say I remember much about it at all, except that the ad campaign made me think of Death Ship.

    There are a few similarities since both deal with ghosts on a boat.

    Death Ship is a fun film with a surreal mood and some bizarre imagery. Ghost Ship is dull crap with only a couple of nifty gore scenes to it's credit.

    Death Ship, no contest. Ghost Ship I didn't even finish watching. Turned that shit off. I hope Death Ship comes out on R1 soon. My Embassy VHS is getting a little rusty.

    Same here. The first 10 minutes or so of Ghost Ship were great, the rest was pretty much crap.
