Andres and his partner are hired to recover valuable cargo from an airplane
that went down in the Bermuda Triangle, they face not only human treachery
but also the mysterious powers of an underwater civilization. Tonino
Ricci's film claims 'to tell the truth about the Bermuda Triangle.'
Specifically, a race of minuscule - yet telepathic - aquatic beings
live in an underwater city (not unlike Atlantis) and they cause planes
and ships to meet a watery end in this treacherous patch of ocean. In
addition, these beings also have learned how to mind-control sharks
and use them as security guards to stop anyone foolish enough to venture
film ends with this brazen proclamation: "This story is based on
the testimony of men who have undergone strange and inexplicable experiences.
Many of them now live in seclusion, perhaps because they are considered
mentally unbalanced by society, perhaps because the experiences they
endured have actually made them different." Tonino Ricci stopped
making movies in 1999, after 22 projects over thirty years. He died
at age 86, March 2014.
Agren, Swedish-born model, turned to acting after moving to Italy in
the late sixties. She made 60+ films over two decades, retiring in 1989.
She is best known to genre fans for Umberto Lenzi's EATEN
ALIVE and Lucio Fulci's CITY
OF THE LIVING DEAD (both 1980). Ms Agren moved from Italy after
divorcing her producer husband Carlo Maietto in 1997; she has since
made Miami Florida her home.
