The poor acting immediately betrays the fact that it isn't real, but there are some really good ideas here and it's quite well made for what it is
21 October 2013 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

A found footage alien abduction movie that originally aired on the UPN network in January of 1998. Much like the contemporaneous Blair Witch Project, many were convinced it was real. It's very clearly not. The acting is very amateurish. The film is broken up with interviews from experts. One of them, a film director, claims that it has to be real because it has no real plot. The fact is, not only does the film have a very basic horror movie plot, it also has about half a dozen subplots, like mom's alcoholism (the woman carries a wine glass even while running from aliens) or sister's dating a black man. No matter, though. For what it is, it's actually very well done. It's quite frightening. I'm surprised it didn't lead to bigger things for the director. I suspect, given which network it aired on, that almost no one saw it at the time. This is actually the second version of the film. The first was made nine years earlier. Both versions can be found on Youtube.
