It's a brilliant film. I love Christopher smith as a director. Black death is about to be watched again this weekend.
@blacksea The clue is the reference to Sisyphus that one of the characters makes on board the ship. He was a nasty ancient Greek chap that Zeus punished by trapping him in a valley with a large boulder, and he was told he could gain his freedom if he rolled the boulder up and out. He would push the boulder almost there but it always ended up rolling back down and he had to start again.
So the woman is being punished, presumably for her cruelty to her own child, in a similar fashion. I thought it was a neat trick - you don't create someone's Hell with fire and pitchforks, just with a simple loop in time.
I got that from triangle too, the fact she is doomed to be punished relentlessly but I'm not smart enough to pick up the mythological reference!
