Psychotronic Film Society: Satan’s Triangle (1975)

  • The Sentient Bean 13 East Park Avenue Savannah, GA, 31401 United States

Wednesday, Feb. 1 at The Sentient Bean, the PFS salutes the life and career of hunky, campy leading man Doug McClure (“The Land That Time Forgot,” “At the Earth’s Core,” “Humanoids from the Deep”) on the 12th anniversary of his death. They’ll screen one of his weirdest features, the way-creepy 1975 made-for-TV shocker “Satan’s Triangle,” which is adored by devoted fans of vintage thrillers as one of the finest horror telefilms ever made.

In this underappreciated movie, McClure — who some may know as one of the inspirations (along with actor Troy Donahue) for the character of Troy McClure on the animated comedy series “The Simpsons” — plays a Coast Guard helicopter rescue medic who finds himself trapped on an abandoned ship adrift in the Bermuda Triangle. The entire crew onboard has been mysteriously murdered, except for a traumatized woman (played by Kim Novak). Were these deaths a series of accidents, or is something unearthly and demonic taking place in this corner of the ocean? The answer may surprise you… $7 admission, with an 8 p.m. showtime.
