Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Francesca is seducing Greer she is standing at a shaft. She is holding her hand at a door post. Each time the camera looks from behind her her hand is somwhere slightly above her head. When the camera looks from the other side her hand is much lower, at the height of her neck. (01:02:00)

Continuity mistake: When Santos is calling for Murphy over the speaker after discovering something on the radar, you see Jack tipping his head backwards. When it cuts he has his head down. (00:12:20)


Deliberate mistake: At the beginning and especially at the end, Julianna Margulies spends extensive time in the ocean, wearing nothing but cargo pants and a T-shirt. Considering the movie takes place just off the Bering Strait, wouldn't she have quickly frozen to death? (01:21:05)

More quotes from Ghost Ship

Trivia: The studio and producer Joel Silver reportedly called for major re-writes of the script shortly before shooting began. Many of the actors had signed up based on the original script, titled "Chimera", which contained far less violence and supernatural elements, and instead was a psychological drama about what happens to a salvage crew when they are stranded in the middle of the ocean. Much of the cast wasn't informed that the script had been almost completely altered into a more generic supernatural-horror/slasher film until just before they showed up to begin filming, leaving many of them disheartened and disgruntled.
