Sam Neil (Event Horizon, Bicentennial Man), Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut) and Billy Zane (Titanic) - in riveting performances . Joe and Rae Ingram (Neil and Kidman) do the right thing and rescue the half-delirious sole survivor (Zane) of a crippled schooner. But soon the stranger will plunge the unwary pair into an intense battle of cat and mouse. And life and death.
Dead Calm has to be one of the last great suspense thrillers of the 80s. This will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Brilliant performances from Sam Neill, Billy Zane and Nicole Kidman in her first major screen role and boy does she look sexy. Beautifully shot and with a haunting score, this movie oozes atmosphere to the point where you feel like you are out on that ocean. Brilliant stuff.
