Article 4482 by Dave Sindelar
Directed by Rene Cardona Jr.
Featuring John Huston, Andres Garcia, Hugo Stiglitz
Country: Mexico / Italy
What it is: Secrets of the mysterious area revealed!
A boat sailing through the Bermuda Triangle encounters strange phenomena.
I will give this movie credit for coming up with one humdinger of an explanation for the disappearances; it’s the result of an evil doll floating in the area that takes over little girls. As a result, people die and time seems to be warped. You know, silly as it is, this still could have been somewhat exciting, but there’s just too many things wrong with it. Lifeless direction is certainly one culprit, but even worse is the clumsy, stupid dialogue being badly delivered by the actors or whoever happens to be dubbing them. Even John Huston does little for the movie, but then, it looks like he’s pretty bored with the whole thing himself. Furthermore, at 112 minutes, it’s far too long; I’m not even sure there’s sixty minutes of interest here. If there’s a good movie out there about the Bermuda Triangle, I haven’t seen it yet.
