Survivors of a tragic shipping collision are rescued by a mysterious black ship which appears out of the fog. Little do they realize that the ship is actually a Nazi torture ship which has sailed the seas for years, luring unsuspecting sailors aboard and killing them off one by one.Written by

At the beginning, just after the collision, the surviving characters are seen drifting on the ocean on a wooden platform. George Kennedy's character is plainly visible lying down with the group, even though he hasn't yet been pulled out of the water! He appears from below the water about two minutes later. See more »

Signal him to alter course.

The German TV version was cut by several minutes including nearly all scenes of violence, dead bodies and Nazi content. The old Videoversion (VPS Video) is uncut. See more »
This is one of those movies I saw as a kid, was terrified by and have been trying to find ever since.
I finally obtained a copy and watched it again for the first time in twenty years.
Until that moment though, I had sought out various opinions of the movie on the internet, the place where everyone has an opinion on everything, and I must say, the majority of comments I recieved were less than encouraging, however my mission would not be swayed.
Now, here I am having seen this obscure little flick again and I must say, it wasnt as bad as all that.
I think the sense of atmosphere and eeriness, while quite tacky, were effective and charming.
One scene that stood out in my mind since that fateful night I watched it as a child, is where Mrs. Morgan eats that poisoned lollie, turns into some creature, is killed and tossed overboard. Ah joyous memories
