The Bermuda Triangle has always been one of the biggest mysteries in the world, as a lot of the stories of ships that have been lost at sea throughout history are said to have happened in this mysterious area that exists within the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. As such, this area has become the birthplace of a lot of urban legends that may or may not be true.
Considering that the Bermuda Triangle is still one of the most mysterious phenomena in the history of the world, there have been a lot of stories that have been created out of this place. Of course, movies about this accursed place have also been made, as there are some films that actually incorporate the mystery behind this strange place. Now, with that said, let’s look at the best movies about the Bermuda Triangle.
10. Scooby-Doo! Pirates Ahoy! (2006)
We start this list off with a popular title that has always been around in the world of cartoon mystery, as Scooby-Doo will always be one of the favorites among children and adults alike when it comes to mystery-solving cartoons. Of course, the gang returns in this movie that is all about the Bermuda Triangle.
In Scooby-Doo! Pirates Ahoy!, the entire gang goes on a cruise that ends up becoming creepy. That’s because they end up in the Triangle. As such, creepy things start to occur while they are on the ship, as it is up to Scooby and the gang to get to the bottom of the mystery and save the day.
9. Time Under Fire (1997)
One of the things that have always made the Bermuda Triangle advantageous for different filmmakers and storytellers is that no one actually knows what happens when you get to the most mysterious part of this area. In that regard, Time Under Fire was able to put its own twist on the entire mystery.
This movie takes on a different approach by making the entire mystery a portal that would transport you to a different timeline. In that regard, the crew of an entire US submarine entered the portal in the Bermuda Triangle and was transported 80 years into the future. The world was now under a one-man dictatorship, and it was up to the crew to try to stop a nuclear war from happening.
8. Monster Island (2004)
If you’re into the horror-comedy genre, then Monster Island should be one of the movies that you should watch, especially if you want something that’s related to the Bermuda Triangle. The movie starts out as an innocent trip to a tropical island where a group of friends is supposed to enjoy a vacation.
However, it turned out that the friends got stuck on an island in Triangle. This very same island was inhabited by monster insects that were incredibly huge. It’s not the most compelling movie to watch because it can get a bit too wacky and goofy for the tastes of the most discerning movie watchers. However, there is a comedic charm in this low-budget movie that was supposed to entertain.
7. Satan’s Triangle (1975)
The entire Bermuda Triangle mystery actually became popular during the middle to the latter portion of the 1970s when different writers started getting into the fad of writing stories and investigating incidents related to the mystery. In that regard, this 1975 movie is one of the earliest films about the Bermuda Triangle.
Satan’s Triangle is basically a movie that talks about the mysterious Triangle and how it can actually be related to the Devil himself. The movie opens up when a rescue operative rescues a survivor from a passenger ship in the part of the ocean that is said to be the Bermuda Triangle. After he rescues that survivor, things start to go weird, as it is possible that this survivor is actually connected to Satan himself.
6. Beyond the Bermuda Triangle (1975)
Again, the 70s were full of different stories and mysteries related to the Bermuda Triangle, as this is the second 70s movie about the Triangle that we have on this list. And the thing about Beyond the Bermuda Triangle is that this film takes on a more investigative approach that tackles the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.
Beyond the Bermuda Triangle talks about a series of disappearances of airplanes and ships that passed through the Triangle. As such, a former businessman attempted to investigate this entire event when his lover and her friends ended up getting lost in this mysterious part of the ocean. It isn’t the best movie to watch about the Bermuda Triangle, but it has its own charm when it comes to how it allows you to see a more grounded way of telling the mystery behind this mysterious place.
5. Gulliver’s Travels (2010)
Gulliver’s Travels is a retelling of a classic book that has always been quite popular for children to read. Basically, it is a modern-day version of the story and follows Jack Black as the titular Gulliver character. And because it is a Jack Black movie, it is obviously a comedy film that takes on a different twist to the Gulliver storyline.
In Gulliver’s Travels, Gulliver rented a ship that would take him to the Bermuda Triangle because he wanted to find a way to increase his standing in his job as going to the Triangle and writing a story about it would have allowed him to impress the people at work. However, he got himself washed up to the mysterious island called Liliput, which was home to incredibly small people. In that regard, he got himself entangled in the love story between a princess and a common man while also preventing an invasion by a rival nation.
4. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018)
Another animated movie makes it on this list as Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is the third installment of the Hotel Transylvania movie franchise and follows the characters that we met back in the first movie. In this film, the cast goes on a summer vacation to escape from human civilization. Of course, it takes on a comedic twist to the entire Bermuda Triangle angle.
In Hotel Transylvania 3, the cast goes on an adventure to the Triangle, which acts as their meetup point. The Triangle here is an actual triangular hole in the middle of the ocean and has a lot of different ships piling up on it. Basically speaking, the movie made this entire mystery a part of its comedy act.
3. Triangle (2009)
The title of the movie is a bit straightforward as it is indeed a movie about the Bermuda Triangle. However, unlike the other movies that take on a more comedic and lighthearted approach to the dreaded Bermuda Triangle, Triangle is a horror-thriller movie that can actually be psychological in nature as it is one of the most mind-bending movies about this mysterious place.
Triangle follows the story of a woman that ends up in an accident out on the open seas. Luckily, a passenger ship helps her, but she eventually disappears in a time loop. Meanwhile, the ship ends up getting caught up in the horrors and mysteries on board. The movie basically isn’t set in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle but takes place in Florida, which is still part of the Bermuda Triangle.
2. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013)
We go on a fantasy tour with Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, as this movie allows us to see a more epic portrayal of the Bermuda Triangle. Of course, the Percy Jackson movie series has always been a fantasy-adventure storyline that involves Greek godchildren that live in the modern-day era. In that regard, this movie is actually friendly toward younger audiences.
In Sea of Monsters, Percy and his friends embark on a journey that requires them to go to the dreaded sea of Monsters, which is actually the Bermuda triangle. This place is home to the Charybdis, which is a gigantic mythological sea monster that can be found in Greek mythology. Of course, it goes without saying that Percy and his friends get swallowed by this gigantic creature.
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)
In what are the latest (hopefully not the last) Pirates of the Caribbean movie to feature Johnny Depp at the helm as Captain Jack Sparrow, Dead Men Tell No Tales uses another sea legend to tell its storyline. Of course, in the past, several sea legends like the Black Pearl, the edge of the world, and Davy Jones were used. This time, the Bermuda Triangle was utilized.
In Dead Men Tell No Tales, Armando Salazar is a famed pirate hunter that went on to hunt Jack Sparrow. However, the clever captain led them to the Devil’s Triangle (the Bermuda Triangle) decades before the events of the movie. But instead of dying, Salazar and his crew turned into ghosts that were able to escape the Devil’s Triangle and vowed to get their revenge on Jack Sparrow.
