    Synopsis


    Dead Calm
    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. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      I vaguely remember seeing this movie when it was first released- I remembered that it was the first time I'd seen Nicole Kidman act and it was the movie that gave her the opportunity to move to the US. When I ran across this copy at such a great price I immediately snatched myself a copy. If you're a fan of psychological thrillers, this one has lasted the test of time. If you're a Nicole Kidman fan, you definitely need to own a copy. The only downside is the lack of bonus content (just the theatrical trailer), but this is the only version available and I doubt a Criterion Collection is coming out anytime soon.

      What a knock out performance by Nicole Kidman. This movie is a nail-biter from beginning to end. All performances are great but this breakout performance by Nicole is fantastic and she is the whole movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am so glad to now own the Blue-ray and at a great price. I definitely recommend this movie.

      Very good film; mediocre Blu-ray

      This is a fine Australian thriller by Philip Noyce that first put Nicole Kidman on the International map. The Blu-ray, however, is merely adequate in its picture quality, and its lack of any special features beyond a trailer is really substandard. The rating and recommendation is only for the film.

      This is a older movie that I originally saw in a movie theater and was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife, who has not seen it, can watch it anytime we want.

      This is an above average suspense movie with a solid looking blu-ray release. No extras on the disc besides trailer. I found it in the 5.99 bin.

      Somehow I had missed "Dead Calm" and glad I finally saw it. Good thriller with great performances all around. A young Nicole Kidman is the bomb!

      I mostly bought this movie because Nicole Kidman is in it, but this is a pretty good thriller.
