Grieving over the death of their son, a married couple decide to take a long yachting trip for relaxation's sake. Their journey takes a dark turn, however, when they rescue a young man from a drifting vessel. The couple soon discover that the other ship's crew had been brutally murdered by their new passenger, and find themselves in a battle of wits against this violent sociopath. Interestingly, a previous attempt had been made at adapting the novel that inspired this film by none other than Orson Welles; footage from his unfinished version, known as The Deep, can be seen in the documentary Orson Welles: The One-Man Band. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide

Not sure how I came across this one...
maybe looking at vintage Kidman movies?!
Anyway this film yucks.
Seems like they couldn't make their mind if this
will be a thriller or a horror movie.
So they give you a bit of both.
And then they kill an innocent 3 year old
at the very beginning with the flimsiest excuse
(except maybe tasteless buckling up advocacy).
And the unexplicable sex scene.
sigh... at best this is a standard thriller with lots of close up-come-surprise type of shots.
And the end of course is the most ridicilous of all,
but you learn to expect it by then.
