Two couples charter a yacht trip from New Zealand to Fiji. One couple is from New Zealand, the other from America. The boat is run by 'Big Dave' and his wife, who also have a dog. The trip is going well until they encounter an unseasonal fog bank and respond to an S.O.S. They find the drifting boat and the lone survivor, 'The Greek' (John Rhys-Davis), who explains that a storm came up and washed everyone overboard. In truth, he killed them all. He's thousands of years old and has been trying to outrun 'The Ferryman', that guy from Greek mythology who Ferries your soul to the afterlife. How he escapes is that, with the help of a strange little dagger, he can swap bodies. But the body he now finds himself in is riddled with cancer - and so he has a new boatload of people to choose from.
This is a solid, entertaining horror movie, with a good story, interesting characters and enough gore to do the job. THE FERRYMAN is one of the better horror movies of 2007.
