Triangle (2009)

This is one of those movies that starts simple, becomes mysterious, then rapidly moves into WTF territory. The more you peel back the layers, the more interesting it gets. It seemed like the marketing made it out to be a slasher flick on a boat, but it’s not at all that.

The premise involves a girl named Jess (Melissa George) who goes on a boating trip with some friends. After a bad storm, their boat capsizes and they are hopelessly adrift when a massive cruise ship passes by close enough for them to hop aboard. They quickly find that the cruise ship is deserted and then the fun begins.

Without giving too much away, the story goes off the deep end as Jess discovers things are not what they appear on the ship as a sense of deja vu washes over her. The further you get into the meat and potatoes of the movie, the more invested you become. When it’s over, you kind of want to do it all over again.

The depth in the acting is not apparent at first, but is definitely there. I can’t say it is the most horrific or suspenseful, but everything else makes up for it.
