Dead CalmDirector: Phillip Noyce, Sam Neill, Nicole Kidman, Billy Zane
Grieving over the death of their son, a married couple decide to take a long yachting trip for relaxation's sake. Their journey takes a dark turn, however, when they rescue a young man from a drifting vessel. The couple soon discover that the other ship's crew had been brutally murdered by their new passenger, and find themselves in a battle of wits against this violent sociopath. Interestingly, a previous attempt had been made at adapting the novel that inspired this film by none other than Orson Welles; footage from his unfinished version, known as "The Deep," can be seen in the documentary Orson Welles: The One-Man Band.

Very intense and on top at all times. I loved this movie and all the characters in it were played perfectly. This introduced me to Nicole Kidman, and I have loved her ever since. The thrill continues till the end.
Nicole Kidman with a bad, bad hairdo in a bad, boring movie.
Beautifully made film with great acting and photography. The film terrified me.
