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

Did You Know?

Goofs

The SOS sent by the Requoit is wrong. It's depicted as one dash followed by three dots. An SOS is actually three dots, three dashes, and three dots. See more »

Crazy Credits

The closing credits differ from the film as originally shown on ABC. The current version has the credits sped up (as is common in TV cuts), with the music fading out and the antagonist's laugh coming at the end.

In the original cut, the antagonist laughs first, then the credits roll at normal speed, and the music is different, being similar to that played over the Executive Producer credits at the beginning of the film, orchestrated differently and rising to a crescendo at the end. See more »

Atmospheric, spooky TV chiller with some graphic images...
5 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

The latter-day, 40-something beauty of Kim Novak--striking and yet sinister--is milked for all its worth in this effective TV-made occult suspenser about a Coast Guard pilot investigating a doomed private yacht adrift on the waters, finding a sole survivor who seems to know the ship's many mysteries. The film builds suspense through tension and an atmosphere full of unseen dread. Although I was initially chilled by the well-handled twist ending, I was somewhat disappointed to see the film throw out all its mystery to instead become a battle between good and evil. I don't mean to suggest that's a bad thing, it's just that "Satan's Triangle" was doing such a fabulous job of being scary without being too specific that it's a bit of a letdown to see the story slip into formula. Nevertheless, a creepy, cunning item to jangle the nerves.
