Triangle Plot:Jess (Melissa George) is a single mother to Tommy (Joshua McIvor), who is autistic. Encouraged by her friend, Greg (Michael Dorman), to take some time for herself, she joins him and his friends for a day of sailing. Soon, they get caught in a freak electrical storm which capsizes their boat, forcing them to seek refuge on a passing ocean liner. Once on board, they realize that the ship is empty. Jess, however, feels that she has been there before.
As the group of five explores the ship further, strange things begin to happen. Jess comments on having an incredible, constant sense of deja vu, footsteps are heard in the halls, Jess’ keys are found dropped on the floor and blood trails are seen on the floor. A masked figure stalks the group while Jess attempts to piece together the unfolding mystery as well as survive. One by one the members of the group are killed until finally there is only Jess, who faces off against the figure, culminating in her throwing the person overboard.

Variety said that Triangle only makes some kind of sense on its own fantastic level.Time Out reviewer Nigel Floyd praises Melissa George’s “fearless, credible performance” that “grounds the madness in a moving emotional reality.” The Guardian critic, Philip French compared it to a “Möbius strip” in which the viewer “wonders how Smith will keep things going” and adds the viewer will “leave his picture suitably shaken.”Fellow Guardian critic Peter Bradshaw remarked Triangle is a “smart, interestingly constructed scary movie”, complimenting Smith for “creating some real shivers.”
Less impressed was Entertainment Ireland’s Mike Sheridan, who does praise George’s “fine committed performance, but that can’t shield the fact that this still an exceptionally non-scary horror, that will have you scratching your head more than jumping out of your seat,” ultimately rating it 2/5 stars.

Triangles:A triangle has three sides and is made of straight lines. A triangle may be classified by how many of its sides are of equal length. Or, it may be classified by what kind of angles it has.
Types of Triangle by Angle
In an equiangular triangle, all the angles are equal—each one measures 60 degrees. An equiangular triangle is a kind of acute triangle, and is always equilateral.
In a right triangle, one of the angles is a right angle—an angle of 90 degrees. A right triangle may be isosceles or scalene.
In an obtuse triangle, one angle is greater than a right angle—it is more than 90 degrees. An obtuse triangle may be isosceles or scalene.
In an acute triangle, all angles are less than right angles—each one is less than 90 degrees. An acute triangle may be equilateral, isosceles, or scalene.
