We rate the new Halloween flick ”Below”

Stars a haunted… World War II submarine.

Scariest moment Two: A corpse suddenly begins to talk; any scene in which Zach Galifianakis — former host of VH1’s ill-fated ”Late World” — appears.

Grossest moment After a devastating explosion racks the sub, the survivors have to walk over the bodies of their shipmates. But like the rest of ”Below,” it’s not truly graphic.

Sample dialogue ”The malediction needs satisfaction to escape the netherworld.”

Creepy children? None (remember, it’s set in a submarine) .

Overall spook rating Four out 10 skulls. For all its strong performances and visual elegance, ”Below” is too mannered and restrained to be truly scary. It’s like PBS’ version of a horror movie.
