I watched this as a kid on its original cinema run in the UK. I was nine years old and and the movie left a lasting impression on me- I can still vividly remember the stories (especially Flight 19 and the Philadelphia Experiment).
I've wondered about the film for many years, as it's format was rather strange for a cinema movie- The stories (I believe taken from Charles Berliz books "The Bermuda Triangle" and "The Philadelphia Experiment") were supposably true. The movie takes on dramatised documentary form, complete with overly serious presenter.
