Storyline

A USCG pilot and his winchman Haig (Doug McClure) answer an SOS call at sea and arrive at a derelict schooner called the Requoit. Haig lowers himself to the ship, where he finds three dead bodies along with one survivor, Eva (Kim Novak), cowering in the cabin. As the pilot attempts to retrieve Haig and Eva with a rescue basket, the line breaks, plunging the two into the ocean. After they swim back to the boat, the pilot informs Haig that he must return to base because his fuel is borderline. Eva and Haig spend the night on the boat, during which time she recounts the story of the storm that killed everyone else aboard. One man was hurled through a hatch; one is hanging from the ship's mast; another vanished before her eyes; and a fourth man is in an aft compartment, floating in the air. Eva attributes the deaths to supernatural causes, but Haig has a practical explanation for everything, including the man who appears to be floating in the air. In the morning, the pilot returns along ... Written by Thomas Veil

The best of the "Bermuda Triangle" movies
7 March 2005 | by (Cleveland) – See all my reviews

Forget that this is a TV movie filmed on a small budget, and that it doesn't have a gigantic ocean-liner like "Ghost Ship" or "Lost Voyage". This is definitely the scariest "derelict ship" movie that Hollywood has ever made. (So naturally, you almost NEVER see this movie on TV. But that's another issue, for another time.)

Rescue pilot Doug McClure and his companion, Michael Conrad, are sent to answer an SOS call from a small yacht at sea. Conrad is leery because the location is at the center of the Bermuda Triangle, but McClure dismisses his fears.

However, when McClure gets to the ship, he finds a lone woman survivor, Kim Novak. Malfunctions force Conrad to return to base, leaving McClure and Novak on board the yacht. She tells him of a mysterious force in the triangle that killed everyone else on board. However, McClure's practical nature allows him to look for, and find, plausible explanations for everything that happened.

When Conrad comes back to pick them up the next morning, the movie takes an entirely different turn. I won't tell you what it is, but it's one of the most terrific shockers I've ever seen in a film. What a great ending! It still creeps me out thinking about it.

God bless the late William Read Woodfield, who penned the script. He was one of Hollywood's most prolific -- and QUALITY -- TV writers. Director Sutton Roley was also used to filming Things That Go Bump In The Night, having lensed such shows as "The Sixth Sense", "Lost in Space" and "The Invaders", so he's clearly in his element here. Leonard South's beautiful yet disorienting camera work and Johnny Pate's eerie music add to the atmosphere. The only "bad" part of this movie is the first thirty seconds, which contain a rather cheesy opening title and narrative defining what the Bermuda Triangle is for the audience. After that, the movie generates plenty of creeps and scares.

This movie is extremely hard to find, so if you see it scheduled on TV, CATCH IT. It has a beauty and simplicity that's lacking in the bigger-budget features that followed, and it's got a helluva surprise at the end.
