Editorial Reviews

Director Rene Cardona Jr. has managed to make a very convincing horror tale set square in the Bermuda Triangle - still one of the greatest mysteries on Earth. This place; which has reportedly swallowed up hundreds of ships, planes and human lives without even a trace; now reaches out to devour the Marvin family and their crew of underwater photographers and sailors who have come to photograph the ruins of a sunken city. Once in the grip of the Triangle, the crew begins to experience bizarre happenings, starting with the reception of a radio broadcast from a ship which had disappeared a hundred years ago! Then follows a series of absurd and horrible accidents and one-by-one the passengers and crew begin to die or disappear. Bonus Features: Scene Selection Menu| Bios| Trailers. Specs: DVD5; Dolby Digital Mono; 112 minutes; Color; 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA - NR; Year - 1978; SRP - $5.99.

OK, let's get a few facts out of the way first: yeah, there's lots of plot holes in this film (some large enough to drive an 18 wheeler through), there some bad acting and the ending is kind lame (though that's par for the course for these "paranormal speculative fiction" type films), and the last reel or two drag quite a bit.

But it's still an incredibly creepy movie. A family of scuba divers journey into The Bermuda Triangle to investigate some u/w ruins that may or may not be the remains of Atlantis. The team is headed up by Ed Marvin, played here by John Huston (yes, the same one who directed The Maltese Falcon). I'm not sure how Rene Cardona Jr blackmailed Huston into agreeing to be in this movie, but I'm guessing he must have gotten the schmutz from Ovidio Assontis (director of the Jaws rip off Tentacles, which Huston had appeared in, along with the likes of Shelly Winters, Claud Akins and Henry Fonda...yes THAT Henry Fonda, a year earlier).

Anyway, so John Huston and family (which includes his wife Kim, their four children Michelle, David-played by Rene Cardona III, though he uses the pseudonym Al Coster in the credits, Billy and Diane) go off on this scuba expedition. For reasons not clearly explained, they've decided to bring along Ed's half brother Peter, a surgeon who spends virtually the entire movie drowning his sorrow and guilt of having someone die on his operating table in a bottle of whiskey. Peter's wife is along for the ride, played by Claudine Auger. Some of you may remember Claudine as Domino DuVal in Thunderball, my personal favorite James Bond movie.

Little did I know what dangerous cinematic waters I was venturing into when I popped the Bermuda Triangle (1978) aka Il Triangolo delle Bermude into my DVD player, but any anticipatory thrills I may have been entertaining quickly went down the drain when I saw the name René Cardona Jr. appear as director, the man responsible for Tintorera:Tiger Shark (1977). The film features, much to my delight, two of the stars of that Tiger Shark movie in Andrés `Uni-Brow' García and Hugo Stiglitz, whose bio on this DVD claims he `lighted up the screen' in the mid 80's in various English language films like Under the Volcano (1984)...whatever...also starring is former Miss Teenage Italy (1974) Gloria Guida whose bio states `she's especially popular on internet babe-watch sites, many of which focus on various states of undress'...seriously, that's what it says, and then let's not forget the big name star in this film, legendary director/writer/actor John Huston (okay, maybe he wasn't a legendary actor, but I still don't understand how he got involved in this mess...I think this mystery actually overshadows that of the Bermuda Triangle itself). As far as the rest of the cast, the only one I recognize even remotely is Miguel Ángel Fuentes (he looks like the Hispanic version of Lurch, from the Addams Family) as he's appear in a handful of American films like Caveman (1981), Triumphs of a Man Called Horse (1982), and The Mexican (2001).

The first twenty minutes or so of the film are intercut with scenes of a family and crew aboard a steamer/luxury ship called the Black Whale III and various sequences of small aircraft and ships meeting an undetermined fate as they encounter El Triángulo diabólico de las Bermudas aka The Devil's Triangle of Bermuda...

Sharks were harmed in the filming of this sad maritime tale of almost mystery and missed suspense. Occasional synth beds accompany a montage of bleeding dying sharks. The engineer of the steamer boat, the Black Whale III, is the only redeeming character. A Lovecraftian character who exhibits an eerie connection to his salty mistress, the sea! The ships comedic cook would've been better cast with Scatman Crothers. There is also a haunted racist doll setting some amount of tension between crewmates and the sadly dubbed; poorly wrote; creep of a little girl passenger. John Huston clearly has a love for salty sea dog stories. I imagine it must be his only impetus for involvement in the making of this... series of images presented at 29.8 frames per second. Oh and it helps to imagine the skipper as a young Zach Galifianakis or an undead Graham Chapman. It got me almost 3/4 of the way through the thing before cashing it in and calling it quits.

I knew when I started reviewing crud cinema again that I'd revisit the Rene Cardona, Jr Fun Park. Although it's been a long time, I vividly remember struggling through "Tintorera" and "Guyana: Crime of the Century". How could I forget those two experiences? A frontal lobotomy performed with a sledgehammer wouldn't rid my mind of the images those two "classics" inflicted upon me. If you're not familiar with Senor Cardona's work, he's the sort of director who somehow managed to raise enough funds to populate his films with fairly well known actors and actresses. He convinced Susan George to appear in "Tintorera," and staffed "Guyana" with folks like Joseph Cotton and Stuart Whitman. I know what you're going to say, and you're right. Susan George was never a huge star, and Joseph Cotton's career trajectory was approaching its nadir in the 1970s. True. But it's still surprising to see the number of known faces Cardona put in his films. For proof of this assertion, check out the 1978 Cardona classic "The Bermuda Triangle". No less a personage than John Huston appears in this clunker. Claudine Auger turns up, too. Consider Cardona as a sort of past tense version of Uwe Boll.

"The Bermuda Triangle" made me wish I could disappear, never to be seen again, preferably while carrying every copy of this film in existence in my hands. The movie revolves around the misfortunes of an expedition sailing into the Bermuda Triangle in search of the lost island of Atlantis. The boat in question contains a number of major and minor cast members so huge that to describe them all fully would tax what meager patience I already have in writing this review.
