Films or Movies with Boats : Kill Cruise (1990 thriller)

Howdy Folks,

Earlier today another post about a movie or film (Knife in the Water) that is set on a sailboat and it reminded me of another film I saw some years ago that is also set on a sailboat (a cruising boat going from Gibralter to Barbados).

It is in the "thriller" genre. Here is some info about it and it is available for free viewing on youtube. Good for a rainy day or night of movie watching.

Kill Cruise (German title Der Skipper)

It does have a star: Jurgen Prochnow, and two minor stars (Elizabeth Hurley and Patsy Kensit).

It involves a love triangle, but this time it has two women and one man on a sailboat that is going from Gibralter to Barbados.

A plot summary is here, but don't read it! It is a "spoiler" and gives too much in detail. It is MUCH better to watch the film. If you like "thriller" type movies (or ANY movies involving boats) you might enjoy it.

Kill Cruise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ahoy All Sailors! I love traditional sailboats of all kinds (e.g. gaff rigged, schooners, cutters, smacks, woodies, etc.). See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details.

Thanks for the heads up on "Kill Cruise". Grimly fascinating and a horrifying portrayal of stupidity and spite.
