If you grew up around the Bridgewater area, you have probably heard of the infamous Bridgewater Triangle and its many spooky, strange and historic happenings.


On Monday October 28, a documentary about the Bridgewater Triangle will be shown at Bridgewater State University in the Horace Mann auditorium at 7:30 p.m.


In the official press release, local filmmakers Aaron Cadieux and Manny Famolare called it “the first feature-length documentary ever produced about the infamous region.”

According to paranormal researcher and author Jeff Belanger, the Bridgewater Triangle includes about 200 square miles of land. Various unexplained occurrences have happened within the triangle, including unidentified flying objects (UFO) and ghost sightings, as well as cult activity.


“I wrote a book called Weird Massachusetts which covered the triangle,” Belanger said. “All the way back to King Phillip’s war, strange things have occurred there.”


According to, the Bridgewater Triangle includes parts of Raynham, Taunton, Brockton, Mansfield, Norton, Easton, and Bridgewater in the center.


Cadieux, co-producer and co-director of the film, mentioned various locations that are covered in the documentary. The Hockomock Swamp, Rehoboth ghost sightings, cult activities in the Freetown State Forest, and Dighton Rock are all discussed in the documentary.


“I did a short documentary on it back in college,” Cadieux said. “I never expected it to go anywhere. I gave it to a friend who gave it to a friend. Suddenly I was getting emails and phone calls.”


Cadieux decided to create a new, feature-length documentary on the region. In 2010, he started working on The Bridgewater Triangle with Famolare, who is also the co-producer and co-director.


“Aaron had the equipment we needed,” Famolare said. “We started working together and became friends.”


Growing up, Famolare was already interested in the Bridgewater Triangle. He wanted to make a movie about it ever since he was a child.


“It was self-financed,” Cadieux said. “We didn’t do a kickstarter. It was a little tricky because we both work full time in addition to doing this.”


The official premiere of The Bridgewater Triangle will be at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth on October 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are ten dollars. For more information, visit
