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

User Reviews

one of the best made for TV movies of the 70s.
18 September 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Positively terrifying supernatural mystery is set in the foreboding waters of the Bermuda Triangle, where a small pleasure craft is found adrift with its crew dead, save for one female. She educes the details of the seemingly impossible situation which gave rise to this tragedy, but there may be a ring of deceit to her story. Is Satan himself a Bermuda Triangle resident, possessing the bodies of the dead in an evil quest to lure more and more fresh souls to their watery graves?

Good performances by Novak and McClure, a highly effective score, and a terrifying story propel this one above the average for its type. Too, the at-sea setting effects an eerie atmosphere of helplessness and impending doom.

A spine-tingling gem that is recalled fondly by those that saw it in the day(many still have nightmares of the closing moment's ghastly freeze-frame image), but it now seems sadly lost to oblivion along with a great many other "Movie of the Week" entries. Perhaps a smart-thinking' distributor will start turning out these forgotten little jewels on DVD. Anyone listening?

7/10
