Description by OLDIES.com:

The actual mystery of the half-brig Mary Celeste is a true and tragic tale of the sea. Under her experienced master, Benjamin Briggs, she sailed from New York with a crew of eight on November 5, 1872. A month and a day later, she was found under full sail without a person aboard. The lifeboat and some navigational instruments were gone but the provisions and all the crew's belongings were still in place. The ship's log offered no explanation. No trace of the captain and his family or the crew was ever found, nor was there evidence of piracy or foul play. This true mystery of the sea remains unsolved and continues to this day, fueled by the salvage of the wrecked Mary Celeste in August of 2001.

Phantom Ship, the American edition of the British 1935 Hammer horror film Mystery of the Mary Celeste, offers history's most fictitious solution to this famous seafaring riddle. It's an ambitious production with footage at sea taken aboard the Mary B. Mitchell, a period sailing vessel. Bela Lugosi is seaman Anton Lorenzen, a religious zealot who goes postal as a result of being shanghaied years before, and does away with the Captain and the rest of the crew as his revenge.

Product Description:

A famous shocker based on the true story of the "Marie Celeste," a ship found off the coast of Africa in 1872 with her sails set, but not a soul on board. Starring the great Bela Lugosi (best known for his performances as Dracula) as the religious seafarer Anton Lorenzen.
