Nobody gets out of the Bermuda Triangle, not even for a vacation. Everyone knows that.

Well, Perry is in a warm and toasty new circle of Hell, and he can blame I can thank John Kenneth Muir for that, specifically his blog post dealing with the seventies craze over the Bermuda Triangle. (Because nothing says Merry Christmas like the Bermuda Triangle.
Today's Viewing:
 In Search of... The Bermuda Triangle 4.27.77  Leonard Nimoy narrates.  
Satan's Triangle1.14.75  Doug McCLure plays a coast guardsman who's stranded on a boat with Kim Novak, waiting for his partner to return to pick them up.  I've watched several Planet of the Apes movies recently and I'd forgotten that Novak was a Hitchcock blonde. 
Charles Berlitz's The Bermuda Triangle 1979 I suppose had I not watched that episode of In Search of, this might have been more interesting.  As it was, seeing how they filmed on location in the Bahamas, Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Bermuda and Peurto Rico, it seemed like someone was getting a working vacation.  
Beyond The Bermuda Triangle11.6.75  It was Fred McMurray's next to last film, and it feels like it.  From Playboy Productions, with Hugh Hefner as executive producer, this made for tv film lacks menace.  People just... disappear in the Triangle.  There's nothing in the budget for storms or effects... so it kind of ends on a "eh" note.
My future viewing will probably be a little less thematic and more random, but this was a great way to pass a relaxing afternoon.
