Traumatized, orphaned college dropout Magnus Dens returns to Bermuda to find the cause of his father's mysterious death years before. At the Bermuda Biological Station, he finds Eric and Dr. Paulis, friends and colleagues of his late father, and joins them on a quest for gigantic sea creatures. He also meets Jennie Haniver, a mysterious young woman who was once his only childhood friend. Dr. Paulis' housekeeper, an island local, warns Magnus that Jennie is dangerous. The beautiful but vain young woman had sold her soul with the Devil centuries before and lives forever young deep in the waters of the Devil's Triangle (a.k.a. Bermuda Triangle). Nobody heeds the folklore and the researchers trap the giant sea turtle, setting the stage for a deadly confrontation with both minions of the Devil.Written by
The name "Jenny Haniver" comes from a type of folk art that sculpts the carcasses of rays and skates into human-like forms that are often sold as "mermaids". See more »
A turtles shell scales grow larger as it ages. So the heart with the initials J+M that Magnus carves into one of the turtles scales should have stayed in that one scale. But when we see a close up of the giant turtle at the end, the heart and initials are now covering parts of four different scales. See more »
[Magnus and Paulis are in the ruins of the Dens family home... they talk about the night Lionel died]
Tell me what happened. I'd like to know about his death.
Are you sure you want to know about all that?
Yes, I'm sure.
Well, he became involved in this project and well, it just took over his life! His entire life! He worked... he worked like a fiend! And so did I. I couldn't take it... I had to get away... to the mainland. Then late one night he called me, and he said he had found a ...

There are 11 differences between the TV prints (that the majority of people have) and the very rare official VHS release (CK entertainment, 1992). The Tv print runs longer (96-98 minutes, VHS runs 90 minutes) and contains the following 10 scenes not on the VHS version. However the VHS has one scene not on the TV prints. 1. extended scene of Magnus and Eric coming off the fishing boat and meeting Doshan (Eric's wife) on the dock. VHS cuts most of this scene down 2.slightly longer head shot of Eric on the stairs arguing with Doshan. After they argue the camera stays on Eric for about 3 seconds. VHS does not keep the longer head shot and cuts right to the next scene 3. Delia's story of Jennie Haniver to Magnus is extended. VHS print cuts out most of the middle of her story 4. when Magnus, Eric and Dr. Paulis are on the boat, something grabs their fishing line. Dr. Paulis starts counting down how much line is left. The line of 4000 feet is cut from the VHS 5. right after the fishing line scene (above) you get an extended shot of them walking towards the front of the boat. VHS cuts this short 6. The infamous grotto scene (where Magnus goes into an underground cave with Jenny and it is alluded to that they made love), is cut entirely from the VHS print. This scene runs roughly 6-7 minutes 7. roughly 56-60 minutes into the film Eric on the boat comments "they pretty much stay to it". TV gives us 1 second following this of a head shot. The VHS cuts this out 8. After Eric shoots the turtle with the harpoon and they show the shot of the turtle swimming towards the TV screen (so speak), you get a very slight extended scene showing Magnus fully putting the boat in drive. This scene IS NOT on the TV print (tv just shows his hand on it when it is already driving) and appears only on the VHS edition 9. When Jennie confronts Magnus on the boat "hold me close", most of the kissing and dialogue are missing from the VHS version 10. After Eric screams for Magnus (upon seeing the helicopter explode) we get a few extra seconds of Eric running through the boat trying to find Magnus. VHS cuts some of this out. 11. after the boat is sunk, we get extended footage showing Magnus climb into the life raft. Vhs cuts this and he is already in the raft. See more »
Giant sea turtle, and a mystery girl. What more could you ask for? I know it sounds kind of corny, but there was just something about this film that I found fascinating. I wish I could see It just one more time.
