Jess wants to get away from her troubles and decides to join Greg and his friends on a ‘boat’ trip. A trip which was supposed to refresh her and give her a sense of getaway turns out to be a horrifying ride , trapping her in a loop. Revealing more would spoil the not-so-simple spooky thriller, and yes, Paradoxes.
Triangle is a smartly directed and logically confusing psychological thriller but the subtle intelligence which keeps the movie running for the climax is worth the hassle. You’ll know that something is going on with the references but the involvement will make you ignore everything but the thrill of the genuine hidden ingenuity.
Triangle is a low budget indie horror film with an excellent script that makes the best of its 90 minute running time. Don’t watch it if you don’t like to think ‘what’s gonna happen now?’
Another in a selection of rare films showing that you don’t need the latest digital effects, massive explosions, or A-list cast to make a good movie – all you need is good actors, a good director, and a good script. And Triangle has that in abundance.
PS. THIS MOVIE WILL FUCK WITH YOU!
Reel Value: 7.2/10
