Trivia

Some claim that before the U.F.O Abduction (1989) and its remake Alien Abduction: Incident at lake county (1998) that there was a unedited 6 hour film of the "true" tape which has been hidden away from the public eye or lost forever. However, this is merely an urban legend, as the film has been confirmed multiple times to have been a work of fiction made before the "Found Footage" genre was popular. 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.
