It is very hard to classify the genre of this movie, it combines horror, mystery and thriller elements that come together in a blend that is very interesting to watch. And I am sure that it will leave you wondering at the end, what the fuck happened? It is the intention of the director to create this curious vibe, so just go along with it. Made with great attention to details, Triangle is a movie that you will want to watch again because it features a very creative and engaging storyline. I would tell you all about it, but that would definitely fuck up your experience. Directed by Christopher Smith (SeveranceBlack DeathDetour), it represents his early work and demonstrates sheer talent that was proved later on.

Couple of friends go on a yachting trip, when an electrical storm leaves them at open sea. When they board a giant cruise ship that appears to be abandoned strange things will start to happen. Visually good, and story-wise very amusing this flick is perfect for some evenings that you need to take your mind of the daily problems and try to figure out what the fuck happened and how can that be… There are also numerous connections to the famous Greek myth of Sisyphus, not so cool guy who killed his guests and travelers, eventually being sentenced to roll a giant boulder up a hill for all eternity, only to watch it roll down after it reaches the top of the hill…

Director: Christopher Smith

Cast: Liam Hemsworth, Melissa George, Michael Dorman, Rachael Carpani, Emma Lung, Henry Nixon

Fun Stuff: The film makes many oblique references to The Shining (1980). The number 237 crops up, which was the same number of the spooky hotel room Danny was forbidden to go into. Words written on a mirror. Ballrooms. Axes, etc.
