I saw the name of John Huston in the credits and since it had the title of THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE I had high hopes that this might be a scary movie featuring the stuff of legend where some boat passengers get lost and find themselves battling demonic forces. I thought wrong because this is bland nonsense of the worst sort

It's not really the sort of film that concerns itself to getting to the bottom of the mystery of the Bermuda triangle which is fair enough. What it is totally guilty of is failing to compel and chill the audience. You want people to be scared for their mortal lives? Bad idea to dub the actors in that case. You know these dubbed porn videos of the 1980s where characters have the best sex of heir lives and they speak like they're repeating their grocery list? Well that's what it sounds like here. No matter what happens to whoever in what ever situation they speak in a bland monotone. You'll also lose count the number of times someone speaks without opening their mouth so obviously this stretch of water causes people to become telepathic

The screenplay is very plodding in its nature, there's very little incident so the director tries to spice things up by adding creepy music which is totally ineffective and soon outlives what little welcome it initially had and soon becomes irritating. It's possibly the worst film made hat features The Bermuda Triangle as its premise.
