Movie Info

It's The Shining at sea in the made-for-cable paranormal thriller The Triangle. The story opens in the Caribbean, where Stu (Luke Perry), a shady lawyer, has chartered a boat captained by Louis Morgan (Dorian Harewood) for a fishing excursion. Accompanying Stu are his "trophy" girlfriend Julia (Polly Shannon), his best friend Tommy (Dan Cortese), and Capt. Morgan's attractive First Mate (Olivia D'Abo). Swept into the Bermuda Triangle by inclement weather, the five seafarers are greeted with the daunting vision of a huge, deserted ocean liner: the Queen of Scots, which disappeared in 1939. Climbing on board the liner to investigate, Stu and his comrades find themselves at the mercy of an unfriendly spirit: the ghost of a legendary movie star who had gone on a murderous rampage on the night that the Queen of Scots vanished without a trace. Lensed on location in Barbados and Toronto, The Triangle premiered August 12, 2001, on WTBS.

With more work, the script could have finished up as a creepy entry in the ghost ship sub-genre, but as it stands it is less than satisfying

Audience Reviews for The Triangle

Some rich doofuses decide to go marlin fishing on a decrepid boat in the Bermuda triangle. What could possibly go wrong? The story is kind of murky and things aren't so smooth on the technical side, either. The characters are on a boat without any locomotive power or electricity -- so how are the interior wall lamps lit? What's running the elevator? The actor playing "Captain Morgan" puts in a really strong performance. The others, including Luke Perry, do a fair-to-middling job. But the Captain character was actually written with some dimension, the rest being resigned to flat reluctance and insanity. One star.

Anytime you have a movie with quantum physics and distortions in the space-time continuum, you pretty much have my attention. I dig that stuff for some reason. This was pretty fun to watch. There is one part of the movie that will totally have you thinking that you've missed something because it seems so out of place, but keep watching. It'll make sense by the end.
