Genre stalwart and four-time Emmy nominated cinematographer Michael Goi returns to the director’s chair for a nautical horror, featuring immense talents Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimer, to craft a tale of terror and unease that crawls under the skin and refuses to leave long after.
Gary Oldman stars as David, a man looking to leave the daily grind to start a charter yacht business with his partner, played by Emily Mortimer. When a deal too good to be true comes their way, David acquires a boat with a sinister history. His desires trump any other sense of foreboding and soon the couple is on their way to the high seas. It’s not long before something malignant begins to manifest itself onboard the ancient boat.
With a cast of talented performers at the top of their game crammed into the taut and endlessly tense claustrophobia of the boat, director Michael Goi puts his best foot forward by shooting the majority of the film at sea, emphasizing the isolation that sailing creates beyond the otherworldly spookiness that seems to haunt this very particular vessel.
For horror lovers who lament the dearth of contemporary, excellently-executed ghost stories with well-timed scares, MARY is everything you’ve been waiting for. Join us for some out-there frights and the rare opportunity to scare yourself silly in the comforting darkness of the Spielberg screen.
