Just released on Blu-ray in September 2009, this 1989 horror/thriller
features a very young Nicole Kidman doing some nice nudity, and a decent
enough if not groundbreaking story to go with it.
Rae (Nicole Kidman) has just survived a terrible car accident that killed
her son, and her husband takes her on a sailing trip as the pair struggle
to get over their tragedy. John is a merchant marine captain, so when he
spots another sailboat apparently in distress, he goes to its aid and
stumbles upon a lone survivor who tells a tale of botulism and death.
John decides the story doesn't quite add up, so he boards the other
sailboat to investigate. When Hughie, the survivor, discovers what is
happening, he takes control of the boat from Rae and leaves the scene as
fast as he can. Now Rae is desperate to regain control of her boat and
return to the sinking ship to save her husband.
A decent enough story although a little tame by today's bloody standards,
Nicole alone makes the movie worth watching, but Billy Zane is also quite
good as the evil survivor. The caps are from the Blu-ray version.
