Two of my favorite entries from Alvin Schwartz Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark anthology were nautical in nature. Whether it was a tale of a bloody corpse seeking revenge, or the recounting of a ghost ship adrift in the fog, there’s something far more imposing about the supernatural at sea than anything that can be found on land. While we patiently await that series to make its way onto celluloid, we have Winston Azzopardi’s The Boat to scratch that itch.
“Building on a tradition of eerie, ghostly British tales, The Boat is a menacing thrill ride that pits a violent survival drama against the supernatural. In the leading role, Joe Azzopardi stars as the fisherman, a practical man whose quick thinking and sea-faring experience ensure that his fight against the unnatural force is more than even.”
So, neighbor, where’s The Boat? Well, it is apparently at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin during Fantastic Fest! The event takes place from September 20th through the 27th. Badges can be purchased now via the official website.
