2018, 100 min, UK, Dir: Winston Azzopardi

A fisherman sets out on his daily run only to find himself lost when a thick fog envelops his boat. But his troubles really begin when he crashes into an abandoned sailboat; trapped onboard, he must face an unknown enemy whose raison d'être seems to be his very destruction. In the leading role, Joe Azzopardi excels as the fisherman, a man whose quick thinking and seafaring experience ensure that this fight is more than even. Building on a tradition of eerie, ghostly British tales, THE BOAT is a menacing thrill ride that sets a violent survival drama against the supernatural. With brilliant cinematography and the use of practical effects over CGI, Winston Azzopardi captures the sea as a duality that can shift from serene to monstrous in a heartbeat.
