A romantic young man, Josh (Joseph Sentance), is haunted by a strange, beautiful apparition – The Wraithe. She believes Josh is her lost true love and tries to claim him for herself, therefore putting Josh and any woman close to him, in mortal danger…



“Likeable, down to earth characters that act somewhat like real people. Spooky scenes on the ship are well shot and have a great ambiance. An interesting paranormal mystery that has an air of classic literature to it. A slow burn, but has a good enough momentum to keep you engaged.” Geek Legion of Doom

“Young’s film is a strange tale […] it’s a movie that feels as though it should belong in another era, such is its usual tone that’s in stark contrast to much of today’s fare. But, there’s no shame in being different, and if there’s a shoo-in of a shallow plaudit to bestow upon it, it’s that of being satisfyingly likeable.” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit
