The truth could be a lot closer than you think.
21 April 2006 | by HannibaltheGreatSee all my reviews

Has been 9 years since the release of this film and to all intensive purposes it's dropped off the radar, even the producers (Rocket films) have deleted the disc from release. This fact does not dilute the impact of the footage. You either accept this person 'Victor' as genuine or not. If you think he's fraudster then you won't give a shred of credence to the alien interview footage he presents. If however you're open minded enough to entertain the possibility that 'Victor' is for real and he has covertly acquired something incredible from the Nevada Groom Lake facility then the footage becomes serious food for thought. IMO the footage is at the very least impressive. Considering it was delivered to the film company in 1996 (before CGI was widespread in Hollywood) the 'interviewee' looks very real and solid. It moves oddly, in a jerky (non puppet) out of time way. I have never seen that movement depicted in any other Hollywood sci-fi flick. The glass partition between interviewer and his subject also made me think this could be real. I doubt fraudsters would have thought of adding this – especially as its so subtle on the film. Overall, I rate this tape much higher than the Santini 'autopsy' from 97. I feel the 'Victor' footage was tainted by that obvious fraud and for that reason has been largely forgotten about. Now we're approaching ten years since this tape was put into the arena I think its time 'Victor' came clean on his identity and told the entire truth. What has he got to lose? Failing that, the mere chance that this footage is not fake is enough to make it highly compelling for some time to come. I recommend this film to anyone who can find a copy to make there own mind up
