Did You Know?

Trivia

Many UFO enthusiasts incorrectly believe the film consists of real footage of an alien abduction, and it was presented as possibly being such on an episode of the 1990s paranormal investigation show Encounters. However, this is due to a bootlegged copy being distributed without the opening logos and end credits which verify that the film is indeed a professional, fictional production. As well, the United States Film Board publicly confirmed that the film was a work of fiction in July 2012. See more »

What a heap of sh**e
29 July 2006 | by FeyonaSee all my reviews

I cannot believe that anyone actually takes any of this stuff seriously. It reminds me of my (reluctant) introduction to a TV program called 'Most Haunted'...my sides were splitting it was such a laugh, but eventually I became offended, as with this 'drama', that people take it seriously.

That in fact it is punted to suggest we take it seriously. Please!

Check out mom carrying her carefully scripted glass of wine through all the action. It's hysterical!

please....watch it and laugh. Anything else...get a shrink.

I also find the tearful face to camera quite sad, do we really live in a world where people play on our emotions and conspiracy theories this much?

Please.........tell these people to tell 'Uncle Tommy' to really put the camera down and get back to acting lessons.
