When Canadian Air Force pilot Jack Ferriman recruits the team to investigate a mysterious vessel he has spotted floating adrift off the coast of Alaska in a remote region of the Bering Sea, they discover the remains of the fabled Antonia Graza, thought lost at sea for more than 40 years. It's a hell of a find. The salvage rights alone could be worth a fortune. And by the law of the sea, any vessel discovered on international waters can be claimed by whomever is fortunate enough to find her and skilled enough to haul her back to port. But once on board the eerie, cavernous ship, the crew of the Arctic Warrior discovers that the decaying vessel is anything but deserted. It's home to something more deadly and horrific than anything they've encountered in all their years at sea.

- Jack Ferriman: Last month I was out in the middle of the Strait when I came across this. Epps: Congratulations. You found a boat. In the middle of the ocean, of all places.
Munder: I just think I shit my pants. Dodge: No, you always smell that way.
[last lines] Epps: No!
[first lines] Greer: I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.
Dodge: You smell that? I smell bullshit!
- Originally conceived as a relatively bloodless psychological horror about four salvage crew members who turn against one another after being stranded in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean aboard the remains of a cruise ship (The Chimera) believed to have been lost in the 1960s.
The design for the "Antonia Graza" was modeled after the "Andrea Doria" (a man's name), a real-life Italian cruise ship that also met a tragic fate: it sank in the 1950s after colliding with another liner. Contrary to this fact, the "Antonia Graza" actually shows a stronger resemblance to the "Leonardo Da Vinci", a slightly altered and larger design which replaced the Doria after she sank.
The opening floor deck sequence of the film where everyone is severed in the torso area by a cable, was originally conceived to be that everyone was decapitated, but the studio didn't like the idea.
Gabriel Byrne replaced Brian Cox.
The scene on the foredeck where the Captain and the passengers were dancing, and the scene in the ballroom, was a common tradition at the time near the end of a trans-Atlantic voyage. These were usually held as the ship approached the end of the trip, near the coast and these Balls were called the "Captain's Ball".
