Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ships of Hate was one of the lesser entries in the "skullduggery-at-sea" genre of the early-talkie era. Hero Bart Wallace (Lloyd Hughes) happens to be on hand when the roughneck crew of the vessel commandeered by the despotic Captain Lash (Charles Middleton) decides to mutiny. Adding to Bart's problems is a collision at sea in the midst of a thick and treacherous fog. Somehow, he manages to survive long enough to rescue heroine Grace Walsh (Dorothy Sebastian) from a watery grave. Most of Ships of Hate was filmed indoors, utilizing a patently unconvincing studio water tank.
