The Bermuda Depths (1978, TV Movie)




















Starring:


Storyline
Traumatized, orphaned college dropout Magnus Dens returns to Bermuda to find the cause of his father's mysterious death years before. At the Bermuda Biological Station, he finds Eric and Dr. Paulis, friends and colleagues of his late father, and joins them on a quest for gigantic sea creatures. He also meets Jennie Haniver, a mysterious young woman who was once his only childhood friend. Dr. Paulis' housekeeper, an island local, warns Magnus that Jennie is dangerous. The beautiful but vain young woman had sold her soul with the Devil centuries before and lives forever young deep in the waters of the Devil's Triangle (a.k.a. Bermuda Triangle). Nobody heeds the folklore and the researchers trap the giant sea turtle, setting the stage for a deadly confrontation with both minions of the Devil.

What an eerie movie ! I first saw it when I was about 10 years old and was surprised to find it on dvd a few months back. It still holds up ! A very haunting film. Connie sellecca is stunning in the film. I've often thought she should have played lois lane in the christopher reeve superman films. She was far more beautiful than Margot kidder.
