So, you're Halloween high has ended, and you feel your morose soul descending into the abyss of withdrawal. The zombies have returned to their graves. The vampyres have fled to where the ghouls and Afrits rave. The restless spirits have shuttered up their haunted house. The cannibal crazies have disappeared into the maze of the backwoods.

The Ghost Ship is an enjoyable novelty: a short pleasure cruise with a Value-added Halloween theme.
