Storyline

Widely considered to be one of the most controversial TV documentary specials ever aired in Prime Time, this famous FOX Network program stirred the "liveliest debate of any home movie since the Zapruder Film," according to Time Magazine. The "home movie" was actually purported to be the actual dissection of an alien being, supposedly recovered and analyzed by the U.S. military near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Written by Anonymous

Alternate Versions

Each time the Fox network reran this "one-hour special," they promoted it as containing previously unaired footage, which meant something else had been edited out to make room for the new material. It is unclear which of the broadcast versions was used for the video release, where, in any event, the program is followed by (apparently all of) the raw footage. See more »

Fairly Convincing and Well Made Documentary
19 June 2008 | by Scars_RemainSee all my reviews

One of my favorite things to read about and research is conspiracy theories, especially ones involving aliens. I had done some reading about the infamous Alien Autopsy and decided that it couldn't possibly be a real thing. My mind was made up and nothing was ever going to change it. That was, however, all before I saw this film. I wouldn't say I believe in it completely but I have a little less reason reason to doubt as this well done documentary was quite convincing.

There are very interesting points from doctors, government personnel, private investigators and even the late Stan Winston. What I enjoyed about this film was that it gives the viewers the side of the believers and of the skeptics so you can choose which you agree more with on your own.

I still have a lot of questions about the autopsy but this film is very intriguing and interesting. You should check it out if you're a conspiracy theory junkie like I am.
