Directed by William A. Graham
Featuring Fred MacMurray, Sam Groom, Donna Mills
Country: USA
What it is: Supernatural… uh, thriller

When some friends disappear inside the Bermuda Triangle, a retired businessman investigates.

Fred MacMurray projects such an amiable warmth that you can’t help but like him, and that comes through even when he’s saddled with poor dialogue and a dull story as he is here. In short, he’s the only real reason to bother to tune in to this lethargic exploitation of the Bermuda Triangle legend; everything else here feels like made-for-TV cliches and filler. And don’t expect much in the way of special effects; the theory put forth this time around is only talked about and never shown, and I greeted the end of the movie with a kind of glum dejection at the realization that that was all I was going to get. In short, this one is talky and dull, with only MacMurray’s performance to lift it out of the doldrums.
