Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence, Profanity)

Tentacle Ratings

A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:

  • S____ (One Tentacle: Debateably Lovecraftian; has almost no direct connection to Lovecraft's work)

Not exactly a "Lovecraftian" film in the sense of being based on any of Lovecraft's work or containing references to his creations, though some viewers may find the location and atmosphere suggestive of Lovecraft's work (an "Eldritch Location" film).

Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.

Reviews

Review Links:

  • Richard Scheib at the Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review (4/5 Stars) (link) - "Triangle was one of those films that did not seem terribly promising at first glance – one thought it was yet another rehash of the nonsensical myth of the Bermuda Triangle – but proved to be a case of one taking a punt on a title at random and being immensely rewarded as a result. ...Triangle creates a complex chain of events that ingeniously map in and out of everything else that happens. ... Christopher Smith’s interweaving of events between one strand of the timeline and the next is positively ingenious.
