Storyline

Traumatized, orphaned college dropout Magnus Dens returns to Bermuda to find the cause of his father's mysterious death years before. At the Bermuda Biological Station, he finds Eric and Dr. Paulis, friends and colleagues of his late father, and joins them on a quest for gigantic sea creatures. He also meets Jennie Haniver, a mysterious young woman who was once his only childhood friend. Dr. Paulis' housekeeper, an island local, warns Magnus that Jennie is dangerous. The beautiful but vain young woman had sold her soul with the Devil centuries before and lives forever young deep in the waters of the Devil's Triangle (a.k.a. Bermuda Triangle). Nobody heeds the folklore and the researchers trap the giant sea turtle, setting the stage for a deadly confrontation with both minions of the Devil. Written by TVholic

Trivia

Co-writer and producer Arthur Rankin Jr. eventually moved to Bermuda himself after making the film, and lived there for the rest of his life. See more »

Goofs

A turtles shell scales grow larger as it ages. So the heart with the initials J+M that Magnus carves into one of the turtles scales should have stayed in that one scale. But when we see a close up of the giant turtle at the end, the heart and initials are now covering parts of four different scales. See more »

Quotes

Magnus Dens: [Magnus has almost drowned trying to swim after Jennie... she resuscitates him on the shore] You pulled me out?
Jennie Haniver: I was near... and you were struggling. It's very beautiful, swimming at night.
Magnus Dens: [as he attempts to get up] Yes, it is. I'd forgotten just how beautiful. I was born here... lived here as a little kid. That was a long, long time ago.

giant turtle in lovely blue Bermuda waters
23 June 2000 | by (brasilia, brasil) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when I was four years old on TV and it has forever haunted me since. I saw some of it again recently on a poor quality VHS tape and the minitaures suck, the title sequence is corny, and the acting is wanting, but the story itself, the images and tones that it offers from it´s romance of the sea is simply lovely and wonderful. Maybe they could do some kind of remake or clean up the effects somehow, but if you liked films like the Big Blue or Atlantis then this corny little number is for you. Just please be warned, it is not a well made piece, just a great story and tribute to the mystery of the ocean.
