Jess: [to Tommy] Oh you're just having a bad dream, that's all baby. That's all it was. Bad dreams make you think you're seeing things that you haven't. You know what I do when I have a bad dream? I close my eyes and I think of something nice - like being here with you.

Smart, Surprising and Intelligent Thriller !!
27 January 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"Triangle" is better than expected. It is marketed by a variety of posters and inlays, some indicate that it is just another slasher. There are some "slasher" elements in the story, but "Triangle" is so much more. The story throws you off a couple of times, there are some really nice and unexpected twists.

A group of friends are caught in a storm and wind up on an abandoned boat. But they are not completely alone.. I won't give anything away here, you'll have to see for yourself. The only real familiar face in the cast is Melissa George (Amityville Horror 2005, WAZ aka Killing Gene). She plays her part extremely well, the rest of the cast is also good, but she really excels here. Recommended for anyone who likes scary and surprising thrillers.
