If this atrocious adventure him ever made sense, some crucial scenes must still be lying on the editing room floor. The story, about four friends on a Brazilian fishing expedition who get entangled in a mariner's curse, begins disjointedly and graduates to total bafflement. The international cast (Perry King, Michael Beck, Fabio Testi, Yuji Okumoto) don't mesh, some scenes are horribly dubbed, and there's an appalling lack of action as the foursome hunts for a ghost ship. Oh, hell, let's not beat around the poop deck: This stinker is a complete waste of time.
