Haunting of the Mary Celeste is the prequel to the vampire romance-thriller "Vampire Diaries". Starring Nicole Kidman, Sienna Guillory and Julia Roberts, Haunting of the Mary Celeste is set in ancient times during the Middle Ages in Europe. When a young woman named Mary (Sienna Guillory) arrives at a manor house where her former governess keeps the blood relation as secret as possible, her dark past slowly unravels. Before long, the maid of honor is murdered and she starts to disappear while telling the ghost of her children that they would be better off without her.
Haunting of the Mary Celeste is an online true crime suspense/horror film starring Nicole Kidman, Sienna Guillory and Julia Roberts. It can be streamed online on YouTube. The movie has a very Gothic & masquerade theme that some people might find disturbing. It's not even all that scary, but it's Gothic horror nonetheless. It's a very intense movie despite being only 90 minutes long. With the addition of Sienna Guillory and Julia Roberts, Haunting of the Mary Celeste becomes much more intense, especially considering the graphic manner in which these ladies murder their victims.
Haunting of the Mary Celeste follows the life of one Lady Svea (DIANA DE LA GRANTA) who happens to be a practicing witch. As a practicing witch, Svea has been hired by Count Dracula (NICOLA SCARES) to research the whereabouts of his latest victim. Svea is also accompanied by Vera (Mladenoff) and Alucard (GUY DADDE). As the investigation proceeds, several clues come to light that will help the three women in solving the mystery of the last housekeeper and her ghastly past.
When the vessel is taken on board the vessel, Dr. van Helsing (DAVCORE) takes charge of the situation. In his effort to solve the case, he and his research team bring in vampire consultant Stefanie Meyer (CARRIEANA DE LOTTO), who has an idea that the maidens on board the Mary Celeste could have been spirited away to another realm. Because of this, Van Helsing sets out to enlist the aid of Lady Svea who has become a worried and apprehensive lady due to the way she has been treated while on board the ship. However, when Lady Svea learns that her friend and fellow witch, Alucard, have arrived on the scene in disguise, it becomes clear that the other dimension is a threat and the only solution is for everyone on board to escape.
The basis for Lady Svea's theory is that the entire region where the Mary Celeste disappeared was populated by Vampires. The only problem with this theory is that there are only two known areas in the world where vampires are known to exist, and these locations lie in Europe and Brazil. The other theory is that the entire area was once populated by Humanoids calledroxophilians. This leads to the third, and most compelling part of the Haunting of the Mary Celeste...
Haunting of the Mary Celeste is a film I find very disturbing, and I'm sure other viewers will share the same sentiments. Lady Svea sets out to prove that the Vampires were behind the disappearance of the Mary Celeste, and while she makes some interesting connections between the clues found on the sunken vessel and the events that unfold, the overall movie leaves me feeling unclear about whether or not Lady Svea is right about the whole vampire issue. Regardless, this is only one story among many in this series, and it doesn't really detract from the quality of the film in any way. The storyline is gripping throughout, and the director made good use of eerie music and a steady camera to create an atmospheric mood. If you enjoy horror movies with a little macabre quality, then Haunting of the Mary Celeste is a film I would recommend checking out. It's not the best horror film ever made, but it is a very atmospheric and suspenseful film... and that is a quality I can live with.
