Good For A Low Budget Movie But Lacks Originality
6 April 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Im not the biggest fan of found footage movies i find them tedious and boring but since i'm a fan sci-fi/horror and all things UFO and paranormal i had to give this movie a watch.

First of all let me start off by saying this movie has very little to do with the real Brown Mountain lights phenomenon apart from fact its actually filmed in the location and unexplained lights have been witnessed for many years.

On with the review: For a low budget movie this is quite good i found myself watching to the end without falling asleep partly because of the short running time but mainly because it manages to create an atmosphere and well acted throughout with brilliant use of sound and film editing.

There were parts in this movie that creeped me out especially when they encounter the aliens the film makers manage to ramp up the tension by not showing too much of the alien just a fleeting glimpse a bit like the aliens in the Signs film. I can't say their were any jump out of seat moments but it did entertain me to very end.

The thing that lets this film down is that it lacks any originality even the title Alien Abduction lacks imagination. The director is obvious influenced by sci-fi movies certain scenes reminded me of Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, Signs, Fire In The Sky and The Fourth Kind (look out for abduction scene & owl part).

This is not necessary a bad thing problem is you've seen it all before in better movies there's nothing in this film that separates it..its all bit too cliché and thats ashame because actually not a bad film.

If you like me and enjoyed The McPherson Tape (another family-in-peril-alien found footage film) you're probably dig this but for everyone else i recommend rental or waiting for it to come on TV.
