Proof of Aliens?
23 September 2006 | by (Hammond, IN) – See all my reviews

Now, I am a person who believes the stories about the EBE and the reverse engineering of crafts, and alien intervention in human evolution. I believe those kinds of wild things. But there is just something about this interview for me that doesn't hold up. The director is doing "Night of the Living Dead 3D." The supposed production company in the movie doesn't even exist as far as i can tell (Rocket Pictures). In the IMDb company credits for this movie there is a company whose sound stage was used. The company also did the animatronics for Star Kid. Star Kid is a sci-fi family adventure with a strange looking robot like alien. However, the basic design of the animatronic face is eerily similar to that of the EBE in this interview. Perhaps Broadstreet and Benson had a cool concept of creating an elaborate mockumentary based on all the information they had heard about aliens. Or perhaps they were even paid to put on such a hoax to provide disinformation. Vega 7 produced this movie and only this movie. Is it not possible that this animatronics company created EBE and used their sound stage to record this infamous footage? I am not saying for sure whether or not this is real. I am just saying that this image could easily be achieved through puppetry and animatronics. But then again...this could be the only known footage of a real live alien being. I guess ultimately it's your call.
