Today marks a day in the United States of memoriam and great sorrow. It’s slightly uncanny that on that day 11 years ago, a film crew was capturing the scene where 90 years earlier nearly 1500 people also lost their lives in a tragic event, the sinking of the Titanic. Over a hundred years later, we can see through the eyes of James Cameron and his friend Bill Paxton (who incidentally played the character of Brock Lovett, a famed treasure hunter that was known for searching for sunken ships for articles of value, in the motion picture Titanic) as they explore what remains of this luxurious ocean liner. What’s left isn’t just wreckage, it’s intricately tied to the people that were on the ship and echo as ‘Ghosts of the Abyss.’

Armed with extraordinary technology and a team of the world’s foremost historic and marine experts, James Cameron and Bill Paxton embark on an unscripted adventure, and invite you along with them. With ‘Elwood and Jake’ (amazing little underwater cameras) you can explore the wreckage along with them.

In 3D, ‘Ghosts of the Abyss’ is a visual feast. My husband, a huge history and technology buff, probably uttered “That’s so cool,” three or four times just within the first 20 minutes. Viewing the water, the waves, the equipment and the Titanic in that kind of realism is extraordinary. Staterooms, the first class dining area, the grand staircase, the elevators and so much more are fore front and center on your screen. Overlays of computer renderings showing the luxury liner as it looked at sailing on top of the sunken ship, gives on an amazing perspective of what it would have been like in 1912. Additionally when going through the ship and pinpointing specific locations, Cameron added historical vignettes substantiated through accounts of survivors, done with a transparent effect so one can see the wreckage yet still imagine history as it must have taken place.

‘Ghosts of the Abyss’ is available in a 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray 3D Disc + Blu-ray 2D Disc + DVD) for a msrp of $44.99 which also includes and extended version of the documentary (an additional 30 minutes), a 3D Digital format $25.00 in the original theatrical version (60 minutes) and a Hi-Def Digital format $15.50, in the extended version.

The Blu-ray Pack also includes the Bonus Feature: Reflections from the Deep.

‘Ghost of the Abyss’ is rated G in the U.S. (bonus material not rated).
