Three twentyish couples charter a boat for a trip from Auckland to Fiji during which they come upon the only survivor of a fishing crew. By stabbing people with an ancient knife, the survivor is able to switch bodies and thereby escape "The Ferryman" who is trying to take him to the afterlife of Greek myth. Great photography and appropriately crafted soundtrack with rather good acting, but some serious script plot holes and some unnecessary stereotypes keep this from being more than just average.

Censor Rating: R16 - Review rating: C
