Seriously biased movie mainly fit for conspiracy-nuts..., 8 April 2015
Author: Leon Smoothy

I stumbled upon this movie, saw a decent rating and saw it, not because I'm a conspiracy-freak, but because it seemed quite interesting, as any thriller could be, but this was a documentary.

I was very skeptic when reading about the contents though, and I became more and more so the further I watched.

Without spoiling anything here, I felt this to be very biased. I have no doubt that despicable experiments has and are being made on humans BY humans, it's not hard to see what drug abuse/mental illness can result in, and that drugs and torture can completely destroy a person, for sure. A modern example is said to be the so called "MK-Ultra program" run by CIA in the 60-70's, said to have experimented with mind control, involving torture by sleep deprivation, drugs, electricity and occultism, and the US government has even made public apologies (Bill Clinton in the 90's) for things done to it's citizens in these fields, sadly leaving many scarred remnants of human beings left to fend for themselves.

But this is far from proof of aliens from other galaxies. A relevant example is how schizophrenia works (and sleep paralysis), when the brain basically cannot separate a dream-state from being awake, and thus producing images for a person that is basically like watching one movie at the same time and viewfield as another, blending sounds and visions so that the person cannot decide what is what. The Nazis in Germany started many of these kinds of horrible experiments during their rule, which then was continued in the US, Soviet Union and DDR. What has been shown though is basically that it is far more effective and reliable to use mass-psychosis, like Hitler did (successfully with HitlerJugend and SS)and like we see today when governments or media can whip up horrendous behavior in humans. It is simply not effective to break down a human being to a mental wreck with drugs and torture, expecting effective results as a field agent, for example. It is far more effective to use lures such as money, power and a feeling of being part of an important nationalistic/idealistic cause than to make people sick.

I'm not saying all these people interviewed are liars and making this up, just that very scary things can be produced by different means to make people 100% sure that things is physically real and has occurred.

A very unnerving and scary technique are those involving "repressed memories". Late scientific proof has been made showing that people, under certain circumstances, can be convinced that they have been experiencing and being guilty of deeds that is simply planted by psychiatric personnel, often with "help" by medication. It has therefore, as an example, quite recently been deemed not reliable at all as proof by the justice systems in many countries.

It is also documented that several US presidents (from the 80's and forwards) and high government officials, has employed so called "psychics" and "paranormal mediums" as important parts of their decision making during large conflicts, which is seriously worrying, if anything!

So this is sadly, in my opinion, food for conspiracy fanatics, and not at all to be considered objective material. But, knowing this, it could well enough be entertaining for some...
