After their boat is overturned in a sudden storm, the passengers of the Triangle are rescued by a passing cruise ship, but what they find aboard the deserted ocean liner will be even more terrifying and deadly... Christopher Smith hits it off in his third feature film, a sharp and sophisticated psychological thriller that should be considered right alongside Brad Anderson' and Christopher Nolan's early works. TRIANGLE maintains an impending sense of dread all throughout the early events in the film even when there is no apparent threat. Smith brings back the same exploratory camera work that he had used in CREEP and SEVERANCE in a big way, giving the small film a much larger look and feel while perfectly framing the suspense in a number of tight shots. Overlaps in time and space that are caused by the Bermuda Triangle are handled in a very clever and precise way without many of the expected errors in logical along the way. The cast is also filled with talented actors that put in credible performances along the way. Although it does have a Slasher element to it, TRIANGLE should not be confused with the average SCREAM knock-off, as it has much more in common with MEMENTO or THE MACHINIST.
