New Film Examines Paranormal Events in "The Bridgewater Triangle"

On October 20, 2013, famed cryptozoologist Loren Coleman will speak at the premiere of the new documentary The Bridgewater Triangle. The documentary examines paranormal activity and unexplained occurrences in a 200-square mile section of land in the Southeastern portion of Massachusetts--an area Coleman dubbed the "Bridgewater Triangle" in his guidebook to the paranormal, Mysterious America (initially released in 1983 followed by several new editions.)

The Bridgewater Triangle is a 200-square-mile section of land that encompasses the now infamous Hockomock Swamp. Many consider the swamp the epicenter of paranormal and unexplained activity within the Triangle. The Wampanoag Native Americans gave the swamp its name, which means "place where spirits dwell," and it has also been referred to as "Devil's Swamp." Legend has it that the persecution of the Wampanoag by early Colonists led to a curse upon the land.

For decades local residents have spotted UFOs, ghosts, monsters, mysterious lights, and Thunderbirds (massive bird-like creatures) in the Triangle. That most famous of cryptids--Bigfoot--has also been spotted many times in the swamp.

The Bridgewater Triangle features interviews with local residents and noted paranormal researchers, including author Chris Balzano, "Ghost Adventures" writer and researcher Jeff Belanger, and journalist Tim Weisberg.

The film premieres on October 20, 2013 at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Main Auditorium. Tickets are available to attend the event live or stream it, in real time, to your computer.
