[Trailer] A Crew Investigates Supernatural Events on the High Seas in 'Haunting of the Mary Celeste' this October!
Fear lies beneath...
...We can never have enough ghost ship movies, and Vertical Entertainment has released a trailer for director Shana Betz's latest terror on the high seas, Haunting of the Mary Celeste, based on a true story!
In Haunting of the Mary Celeste, written by David Ross (The Woods):
"A concerned researcher's team sets out to sea to prove that the disappearance of a family and crew from a merchant ship was for reasons having to do with the supernatural. Her theory that those on the Mary Celeste vanished into a “rift” between dimensions proves true as the boat breaks down and her crew begins to vanish one by one."
The film stars Emily Swallow (“Mandalorian,” “Supernatural”), Richard Roundtree (Shaft), Alice Hunter (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Dominic Devore (“P-Valley”), Pierre Adeli and Ava Acres (Free Ride).
According to the press release, the true story of The Mary Celeste inspired the film’s original concept -- and remains one of the sea’s great, unsolved mysteries. The Mary Celeste was an American merchant brigantine discovered adrift and deserted in the Atlantic Ocean off the Azores Islands on December 4, 1872. She was found in disheveled condition… with her lifeboat missing and the last entry in the log dated ten days earlier. Her cargo was intact and while the captain and crew's personal belongings were totally undisturbed, none of those who had been on board were ever seen or heard from again.
Haunting of the Mary Celeste releases digitally and on VOD via Vertical Entertainment on October 23rd.
