- [Reporter] In other news,

authorities are investigating

a number

of missing person reports

of a commercial

cruise line employees.

Authorities suspect

that there may be a link

between the missing persons

and the missing cruise

ship, The Neptune Star.

The magnetic poles

in the surrounding area

may be disrupting all

conventional tracking systems.

With no trace of visible

evidence or distress calls,

the authorization of

search and rescue team

is still under debate.

(dramatic music)


- [Man] No, no no!

Run, run!

Run, run run!


Keep going, keep going.

(flesh ripping)

- [Both] Maggie!

- [Man] Keep going, keep going!

(dramatic music)

- It's James.

- We gotta get out of here.



- Somebody help me.

- What the hell?


- Have you been here all night?

- Been here all morning.

Technically, after

midnight it's called A.M.

- Actually, it's called

not drinking yourself

into a dead stupor.

Did you go out with that?

- Never go hunting

without my knife.

Heh, heh, heh.

- Have you forgotten who

taught ya how to hunt?

- That was a long time ago.

Let's leave hunting to

the current professionals.

- Oh, is that what you're

calling yourself these days?

- Come on, what's the problem?

- Oh, I don't know.

Maybe we're shipping out

in a few minutes,

and I'd like you not to

throw up on our hosts.

- I'm fine.

- Please, for me.

Clean up.

You don't smell sober.

- Make no promises.

(boat horn blaring)

Think I smell good.

- [Man On Radio] Hunter Rick

Rainsford is definitely trying

to clean up his act,

after his name's been

dragged through the mud

all over social media.

He's got this new wildlife

preservation campaign.

Kind of strange

coming from a hunter,

but after repeated DUI charges,

numerous public

drunkenness displays,

I think these acts of altruism

on behalf on Rainsford...

- Your boat?

- [Man] Yeah.

- It's a hell of a boat.

- [Man On Radio] Nearly

just to be asked...

(radio static)

- [Captain on loudspeaker]

This is Captain (indistinct)

...the the Wilderness Explorer,

now reminding all personnel

and passengers

to please report

to the starboard side

prior to boarding.

- Watch your step.

- Captain,

time is of the essence.

- What you're asking

is impossible.

We have to change course,

these waters are not safe.

- I did the research.

This is the quickest route.

- Tommy boy!


- Rick.

- What's happening, Captain?

- This is Captain Andres,

he's in charge

of this fine vessel.

Any and all questions go to him.

- Actually,

we're not finished yet.

We have to respect is

that you and Mr. Rainsford

are not the only passengers

on this ship.

I am responsible for

the safety of everyone.

- All right.

Let's talk.

No need to bore Rick

with this nonsense.

- Thomas knows me so well.

I don't like to get bogged

down with the details.

Good talk.

Need a little help.

- How can I help you, sir?

- I'm in the market

for some alcohol.

- I'm not allowed

to give you any alcohol.

- Excuse me?

- Well, what I mean is

I just mean that we don't...

- Come on, come on, come on!

- Have any.

- You don't have any?

Or you're not

allowed to give me?

Which is it?

- I think I heard the Captain.

- Do you know who I am?

- Yes, Mr. Rainsford.

- Then you know

this is a mistake.

- I'm sorry.

- Not as sorry

as you're gonna be.

(dramatic music)

(camera shutter clicking)

- Sorry.

Did I startle you?

I was just trying
