A group of heavily armed hijackers board a luxury ocean liner in the South Pacific Ocean to loot it, only to do battle with a series of large-sized, tentacled, man-eating sea creatures who had already invaded the ship.
"Affleck, you the bomb in "Phantoms," yo!" was a phrase coined by Jason Mewes in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), and has been a popular phrase whenever Ben Affleck is mentioned in media. See more »

Oh, you've got some guns, ladies? You wouldn't shoot an unarmed man, would you?

First of all a consideration: you are in a town besieged by an unknown entity, you are not a cop, but a girl. You hear a noise in a room that should be absolutely empty. Do you turn around slowly and slowly go to look what made that noise? HELL NO! You run away screaming like hell, find a fire weapon and annihilate anything you see. Said this, let's talk about movie.
The concept is really cute and the casting is good, but the characters are "thrown" in the story with no background and this can be a fault... The scaring parts are really predictable: music slowly increasing, than stops like "hm everything's alright" then "BAAAW!" someone or something pops out. I could turn the volume down every time there was a scary noise part in time :-)
The ending is also a bit poor and with the classic "I'll be back!" style.
However, not less than 6/10
