One of the most traumatic films i have witnessed as a child
4 December 2005 | by galabiri@hotmail.comSee all my reviews

I have watched this movie when I was pretty young - about the age of 10 or so. Back then I was pretty fascinated with divers, sunken treasures, sharks. Although I was very scared of supernatural phenomenons, such as the stories I have heard of the Bermuda Triangle, I felt compelled to learn what I could of the subject. I was also terrified of sharks - possibly due to viewing Jaws, and another movie called "The Last Shark", where the gore gave me real nightmares. But still, I felt drawn to such films, I don't know; call it masochism. Thus, it was no exception that I rented this movie from the local VHS store and watched it with my younger brother and our babysitter in a night when our parents went out. This movie was damn scary and gave me nightmares I remember to this day: The strange doll the small girl had which sprouted blood from its mouth, the scene which a rather modern ship is desperately trying to menouver a whirlpool in the triangle, and the scene which a shark chews the leg of one of the heroes....... This last scene made me so scared that my nerves yielded and I was forced to stop the tape from running......without knowing the end of the movie...... I never stopped thinking about this movie and how it ended, and I never forgave myself for not watching it to the end - mainly because I couldn't find this movie anywhere else when I grew old and felt ready to face the horrors which once shook me when I viewed it as a child.
