Horror Case Files: Triangle (2009)


It is the 2nd annual Horror Case Files! You can check the list of the first Horror Case Files here. For the whole month, we are doing one movie a day for October in celebrating Halloween. Here we have Triangle, a 2009 British horror/thriller film. Too scared to watch it? The Horror Case Files reveal the background story, kill count, most creative kill, the killer(s), and what happened to the killer(s). WARNING! SPOILERS if you continue.


Passengers on a yacht get stranded by weather conditions. They board another ship, when a mysterious stranger starts picking them off one by one and crazy things start to happen.

Kill Count

11 people



Most Creative Kill

Shot gun blasts to the body

The Killer(s)

It’s Jess stuck in this cycle paradox.  She’s trying to break the cycle from happening by killing her friends, which seems to reset the cycle.  It doesn’t explain why this cycle is happening.

What Happened to the Killer(s)

Jess ends up repeating the cycle. Where the movie ends, it begins the cycle all over again, which is the start of the movie.

Horror Case Files Verdict
You know if you don’t look too hard into the logic of the film, it’s an interesting movie that comes to full circle.  This is worth hunting down for a rent, because it tries something new and it succeeds in what it’s going for, but it does have its flaws.  It comes down to the character’s decisions, at some points you feel the cycles could have easily been broken.  It’s like a roller coster.  You enjoyed the ride, but you have thoughts on how it could be better, maybe more loops.  The point I’m trying to make if you watch this movie, just enjoy the ride and don’t analyze it.  I’d say at least a regular rental.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Don’t have bullets, throw your gun
  • Your house keys can magically appear
  • Shoot your friends if you feel like you are in a time paradox
File Status: 8 out of 10
