Screening Sunday at the Chicago Paranormal Film Festival.

Screening this Sunday at the Chicago Paranormal Film Festival.

Massachusetts was the site of the first Thanksgiving in 1621 after Squanto, a native living with the Wampanoag tribe, taught the pilgrims how not to die so easily. Half a century later, during King Philip’s War, European colonists returned the favor by killing Wampanoag chief King Philip, mutilating his body, and sending his wampum belt to England, where it was promptly lost.

Researchers say a retaliatory curse may be a primary reason that an area known as the Bridgewater Triangle in southeast Massachusetts is, to this day, littered with sightings of UFOs, poltergeists, giant snakes, thunderbirds, and bigfoots (bigfeet?), as well as the mutilated remains of cattle and other livestock.

THE BRIDGEWATER TRIANGLE, a documentary screening this Sunday at the Chicago Paranormal Film Festival at Schurz High School, explores and documents the phenomena and history of the region. THE BRIDGEWATER TRIANGLE, written by Aaron Cadieux and directed by Cadieux and Manny Famolare, is just one of a dozen films screening at the festival on Sunday.

Tickets to this all-day event are a mere $10 at the door, and include access to the vendor’s room, where I will be signing copies of the anthologies QUALIA NOUS and  LOST IN THE WITCHING HOUR, as well as my novel, LOSING TOUCH. Burial Day Books (LOTERIAGOTHIC BLUE BOOK IV) and Breaking Fate Pubishing (HATCHEDDEADHEAD MILES) will also be selling books.

Yep, just $10 gets you a dozen movies and a day full of vendor shopping … OR … if you donate one new toy and/or two non-perishable food items, your admission will be waived by the organizers. It’s a great way to help those in need this holiday season, and a great way to treat yourself to a day full of movies and vendor goodies.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of LOSING TOUCH, featuring a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony, now available in paperback and ebook formats from Post Mortem Press.
