Story as per VCR Cover
The suspense begins on the high seas when John and Rae Ingram (Sam Neill and Nicole Kidman) recue a half-delirious stranger (Billy Zane). He says he's the only surviving crew member of a crippled schooner, but he's really a demented killer. And he'll soon punge his rescuers into a terrifying battle of cat and mouse. And life and death.

Comments
The film that brought Nicole to the attention of Tom Cruise, and launched her career on the world stage. When Tom saw Nicole in Dead Calm he wanted her to come to Los Angeles and star in his next movie 'Days of Thunder'. Tom and Nicole fell on love and were married for 10 years.
