Other movies of the period which treated the Bermuda Triangle in their storylines included The Island (1980), The Bermuda Triangle (1978), Beyond the Bermuda Triangle (1975), and Mystery in the Bermuda Triangle (1979), as well as the documentary Secrets of the Bermuda Triangle (1978).

When Capt. Gallagher is explaining the need to get the raft to the surface to the group on the plane, he explains that it is designed automatically to trigger its SOS beacon when it reaches the surface. After Gallagher hauls himself aboard the raft, however, the first thing he does is extend the antenna and switch on the beacon.
Before the end credits, this text appears. "The incident portrayed in the film is fictional; the rescue capabilities utilized by the Navy are real".
Versions seen on UK television omit the scene where Lee Grant looks out the window of the plane and sees her husband Martin Wallace (Christopher Lee), floating dead in the water.
