Plot Outline:

Trying to escape from the world following a terrible accident, John Ingram and his wife Rae decide to sail the Pacific on a yacht. A month later they spot a seemingly deserted yacht, but there is one survivor and although his story seems plausible, John decides to head to the sinking ship on his own, a decision that will have fateful consequences. -- Chris Kavan

In the right hands, this could've been a quality film, but unfortunately the casting director cared more about prettiness than acting ability. Zane acts like an actor acting and Kidman doesn't act at all. Because she can't.

It turns out space isn't the only place they'll never hear you scream. A dead calm ocean is pretty lonely too - but somehow a psycho turns up anyway. Good performances and an intense story. A worthy thriller - even Nicole Kidman was good.
