Directed by Christopher Smith and starring Melissa George (The Amityville Horror) and Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), Triangle will really get your brain ticking.

Triangle bases itself around Jess (Melissa George) embarking on a boat ride with the romantically hopeful Greg (Michael Dorman) and his friends, Downey (Henry Nixon), Sally (Rachael Carpani), Victor (Hemsworth) and Heather (Emma Lung). Jess appears upset and confused from the get-go, but you believe it is from the stress of caring for her heavily autistic son Tommy (Joshua McIvor) who the audience encounter at the beginning of the movie.

While on board the yacht Jess cannot shake the feeling that there is something wrong and heads down into the cabin as so she can get some sleep. She has a grisly dream of her death and upon rejoining the group her anxieties are realized when the yacht hits a storm and the crew are forced to board a passing ocean line for safety. Or so they believe.

The group quickly discover after boarding that the ship is from the 1930’s and the vessels name is the Aeolus (a Greek word meaning “test from the gods”). Jess is confused, curious and worried, believing something or someone is watching them.

Unbeknownst to Jess she holds the key to the terror and each scene progressively and disturbingly explains the ultimate fate in store for her.

Triangle is a tightly wound, tense thriller that keeps you guessing and manages to make the bizarre scenarios unfold through solid acting and clever pacing. From the very beginning you are trying to figure out what is happening and even up until it finishes you may be still be wondering but that is the great thing about Triangle. It takes you around in circles. I would greatly recommend it for those who like to rack their brains.
