Allow me tell first off that the fact that this episode is a slow build had nothing to do with my giving it a weak rating. I love a movie that builds its storyline and suspense. Some of the greatest horror movies do this. My trouble with Dream Cruise is that its all been done before. What we have here is your standard Japanese ghost storyline (see The Ring, The Grudge, advertisement nauseum) combined with a limited cast on a boat (see Dead Calm, etc.). In fact, there's really not a lot going for this episode in my opinion. Oooo spooky Japanese ghost with long hair. That's scary. Mediocre acting from a so-so cast. Wow. The only thing I really enjoyed about this episode was the end. As in it was over. The episode looks great, but looks alone can't save a ship from sinking. Leave this one in dry dock.
Takashi Miike's contribution to the Masters of Horror's first season was one of the absolute best episodes of the whole show. With his uniquely shocking style, Miike delivered a nightmarish tale that was practically impossible to categorize. The second season includes other short movie directed by an Asian "master" (although this term is debatable, since Norio Tsuruta's only did the mediocre "Premonition" and one of the "Ringu" sequels thus far), but this time the effect is mundane and very simple to categorize. "Dream Cruise" is typical & derivative J-Horror, so unfortunately you already know what to expect: a clichéd plot about ghosts from the past, vengeance from beyond the grave and ghastly appearances that disappear again as fast as the come. "Dream Cruise" is a crossover between "Dead Calm", albeit just regarding the setting and line-up of characters, and the original "Ringu", from which this storyline shamelessly borrows all the main aspects and even some of the most essential frights & make-up effects. The American attorney Jack Miller has been working in Japan since two years and he even managed to secretly steal the pretty wife away from his general manager. The latter found out about their relationship, however, and plots to receive rid of them both during a touristy cruise on his yacht. Jack accepts the invitation reluctantly, because he's terrified of the sea due to a childhood trauma, but Eiji's diabolical plan doesn't really go as planned, neither, because he as well faces an unexpected ghost from the past. The script direly moves from one clichéd case to the next and the three main characters are genuine stereotypes whose each next transport and line of text you can predict light-years in advance. The supposedly surprising ending is terribly irritating, too, and folks who're familiar with ghost stories are able to guess the outcome since the opening sequence already. The make-up results on the watery ghosts would be creepy and unsettling, if it hadn't been for the fact we already seen related items in "Ringu", "Ju-On: The Grudge", "Phone", etc "Dream Cruise" is undoubtedly the worst entry in season two and my private vote for the most lackluster one of the whole show.
Absolutely terrified of the sea, an American lawyer reluctantly goes on an ocean cruise to be near the wife of a client, with no concept of the grim case that awaits them all.This movie was made by folks involved in the making of "The Grudge", "The Ring" and "Dark Water", so if you appreciate these movies in any method you are already on the right page for enjoying this story. And as far as stories go, this one is alright. (Is it out of coincidence that both first and second season placed the Asian horror episode last? Would season 3 have been the same?) This movie worked precisely because it was an Asian horror film. That might seem an odd thing to say, but I will test to explain. In American horror films, things need explanations. Even if they are really abstract, American audiences expect some sort of logic behind what they see. Asian movies (Japanese in particular) are more loose with this. Strange things just happen, and we are supposed to go along with it. Folks receive possessed, reincarnated, spirits float around and this is normal. But American movies cannot do this without trying to make elaborate back story.All the acting is fine, although the girl seemed very odd. I think this was more due to her English rather than her acting, but she was an awkward character. There is also a subplot of infidelity that seems to be a driving force, but I was not clear on how it all tied in. You can draw your own conclusions, as some of the evidence one method or the another is not till much soon in the storyline and I will not reveal it.Asian horror, and this one is no exception, is also nice at leaving disturbing photos in your mind. "The Eye" did this, "The Ring" as well (at least the first American film, not the second). There is a spirit in this film that is just really creepy and in true life would scare me half to death. While American movies tend to have decent gore (on occasion) they do not often leave you feeling grossed out (with "The Sixth Sense" being an exception that comes to mind)."Dream Cruise" was a worthy finish for the second season. Powerful story, decent characters and a distinctly special feel. Perhaps not the greatest episode, but far from the worst. The DVD is well worth picking up. Although the situation tells it is 60 minutes, that is incorrect -- you now receive the full 90 mins that were shown in Japanese theaters, which adds something more. You also receive a nice audio commentary, where Mick Garris explains how he sees himself as a "cheerleader" and has no influence on the production.Unfortunately, there is no director commentary -- he speaks no English, which makes such a commentary hard for American releases. Do they create subtitled commentaries? But if you think about this language barrier, it makes the movie even more interesting -- the principal actor speaks no Japanese, so the director had to have finished faith that lines were being delivered correctly. And it works. Somehow it works.
