Years ago, I watched half of a very strange movie on late night television. I think it was about a couple who give birth to a triangle. I couldn't find it on Google or the IMDB. Anyone know the name of this movie?

Could it have been The Point?

Could it be David Lynch's Eraserhead, which came out circa 1977?

Sounds to me like an Outer Limits episode, but I can't find it.

I think the couple in Eraserhead gave birth to a wrigglything, not a triangle.

I think I remember reading a short story (Bradbury?) with a plot like this, where a couple gives birth to a baby that exists in another dimension because of the malfunction of some high-tech birthing assistance device. As a result, the baby appeared as a triangle to its parents and the parents appeared as cylindrical objects to the baby.

Not sure if that is what you're talking about, and I don't remember any details beyond those. But maybe the extra details will give your googling a boost (I had no luck in about 5 minutes of trying, though).

It was indeed a Bradbury story. The movie, I dunno, though, sorry.

Found it. It's was a tv episode entitled, "Tommorow's Child",
from The Ray Bradbury Theater.
