“The Bridgewater Triangle” hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange happenings, baffling mysteries and sinister deeds.

Was the strange creature that William Russo encountered on a late night walk with his dog one of the dreaded Pukwudgies that the local Wampanoag Indian tribe fears? Here is his chilling account.
RATING: 5 Charley’s
The Bridgewater Triangle encompasses slightly over 200 miles of weird in southeastern Massachusetts. Its points are anchored in the north, by the city of Abington. In the southeast, Freetown and in the southwest, Rehoboth.
From ghoulies and ghosties. And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!

And when I write weird, I actually mean REALLY WEIRD. There is not one denizen of the ranks of the Fortean Pantheon that does not make its appearance in the triangle. Some on a hauntingly regular basis. And this documentary covers them all. The value of the video is that it interviews key investigators and witnesses. So, it’s mostly first-hand source data for you to consider.
Like the Mothman story in Point Pleasant WV, the Bridgewater Triangle legend begins with Native American and settlers conflicts. The bloody war that spread throughout New England was known as King Philip’s War, named after the Chief who lead the uprising. Five percent of New England’s population was killed in the struggle. Today, many people think there’s an Indian curse on the land, just as the people of Point Pleasant believe their town is cursed in the same way. (See my review: Eyes of the Mothman.)
Overall it’s an entertaining and highly informative video. If you’ve never heard of the Bridgewater Triangle before, here’s your Masters’ Degree course on it. Then after viewing it, ask yourself “Can all of these incredible things be happening in an area that anyone on the east coast can easily drive to?”
Appearing throughout the video is the much respected researcher Loren Colman. In 1983, Cryptozoologist Colman published his book, Mysterious America. In it he described a 200 square-mile region in southeastern Massachusetts with a long history of strange, paranormal, and sometimes, sinister activity. He called the region, The Bridgewater Triangle.

Ghosts of the Bridgewater Triangle
