i may go and watch

She is fantastic in "in treatment" on sky Arts, huge HBO box office hit, she is one of the clients that Gabriel Bryne sees, a different one each night of the week.

So she is HOT PROPERTY in the US, and this film probably came from that.

Errr the film is Australian though, and she is Australian. Not sure what Hollywood has to do with it.

looks like a good flick though.

Interesting to see she is going to be in a '30 days of night' sequel too. Should be interesting to see what direction that takes. Does the comic book have a sequel?

Well as this is the first film I have paid to see in 4 years! (I usually have my Cineworld card! but got to the counter and had forgot it NOOOO!!!).

Did I get my Ł5 out of the film? (the counter guy ran me thru as a student when I said I forgot my card, nice) that will be a Yes.

Really nice film, some great moments and the film worked and flowed well for me from twisty turny scene to scene. Melisa George was the film really, she is great and I cannot really say a bad word about her. She looks great, she acts well and does the job perfectly in the film, what’s not to like.
The rest of the cast is ok, but it really is Melisa’s film from beginning to end and quite some ride really with some quality little twists and turns, some expected and some not. Only thing I would say got on my nerves was a few very dodgy shots of a boat with people waving on it, which is used a few times, awful looking thing. Still o the whole the effects worked well and it has some good gore shots as well once it gets into the swing of it, feels more brutal as it gets further into the flow.

I got my cash out of the film and Chris Smith really does seem to be getting that bit better with each film, I loved Severance his last film, and was not too much of a fan of his debut film Creep, but with Triangle I think he is turning into a solid little horror director. Cannot wait to see what he does next.

I watched Turistas (Paradise Lost in the UK ) after it haha for some more Melisa action.

Didn't know it was the Severance director. Loved that too.

It has to be said it is more in tone with Creep's depressing ways, than the fun of Severance but that is no bad thing, at least all 3 of his films are very different.

Still Budget $12 Million is a nice amount to play with for Triangle, more Hollywood than his others (yes that should be Aussie).

At least with Triangle it will be good watching it a second time, as it is such an oddball film stucture/plot that hopefully things will come to light on a second viewing.

I thought they gave away TOO MUCH in the trailer... I sat there during the trailers in pandorum and I was Ooo... "That's my Melissa" much to the eye rolling going on either side of me...

Then they showed the shot where she faces off against herself and it was like "That's kinda spoilerish" but I've heard the press interviews and to be honest, it's nothing the director or Melissa hasn't let slip

Total **** Piece for Melissa fans like me

However, one bit doesn't make sense...

Saw this yesterday and it kept me guessing at to what the hell was going on (though I had guessed the major point considering it was pretty obvious!). Certainly keeps you thinking in regards to the plot and will be interesting to watch again. Melissa George is really very good in it. Liked the direction too and the ship sets are fantastic.

Been to see this today and only came out with a massive sense of confusion, wonder if anyone can help me/point me in the right direction:



Any help would be appreciated

Other than the confusion, I didn't think this movie was all that special. Found myself quite bored with it at times. I did enjoy the filling in the gaps ending, until the part that confused me came along!

I kind of agree RomerojpgX, it's certainly a good explanation in the least, however:
