Having already helmed the visceral slasher Creep and the comedy horror flick Severance, director Christopher Smith tries his hand at suspense in his latest offing, Triangle, an inventive addition to the genre which gets its DVD and Blu-ray release on 1 March.
Filmed in Australia, but set in Florida (basically for the all-important US market), the film stars Melissa George as Jess, the struggling single mum of an autistic boy, who just cannot shake the feeling that something is wrong when she goes on a sailing trip.
When the yacht is capsized during a freak storm, the sailing party board a seemingly deserted ocean liner, but Jess’s growing feeling of deja vu begins to move ever closer towards a horrible realisation.
Having seeing this release at its UK premiere last year, I was bowled-over by Smith’s plotting of the film’s events, and now with the new DVD/Blu-ray release, it’s great to revel in the chilling atmospherics all over again.
Part Greek tragedy, part The Shining… this ghost ship in The Twilight Zone is guaranteed to give you the shivers and keep you guessing right up to the end.
Special features include: The Making of Triangle, Audio commentary with director Christopher Smith; three storyboards; deleted scenes; competition winners poster design; and The Storm special effects featurette.
