What a heap of sh**e

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.

what were they thinking

Im not going to waste to much time on this film... what are people thinking when they say "scary" are you kidding I've seen scarier care bear movies, the acting is shocking the whole think is soooo set up and I mean my 15 year old brother could make more realistic alien's in his school lessons...! Don't waste your time unless within 20 minutes of watching you want to split your sides with laughing due to the bad acting and the shoddy effects...! SPOILER - I mean at one point after the blokes see the aliens they actually sit down to eat a meal? Would you do that? And also through most of the house scene the mother is still carrying a glass of wine, think I would have dropped that a while back if anything was near real??

The "REAL" (lol) McPherson Tape

Ah, the infamous "real" McPherson Tape. Hugely controversial among the alien abduction enthusiasts, hundreds of people still think that this the real deal. Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but it isn't. Still, this is probably the most believable found footage movie I've ever seen, as it really does feel as if you're watching an actual VHS camcorder home video of a real Midwestern family in the early 1980s. The alien abductions themselves are not really the focus here. The focus seems to be the tension that this family feels while being scared out of their wits. I prefer this original version over the 1997 made-for-television remake, Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County, which screamed "fake" right from the get go: awful acting, no chemistry between the actors/characters, overblown effects and laughable "documentary interviews" interspersed to insult the viewer's intelligence. Even though this original version is bare bones and lacking in alien action, it still manages to be taught, atmospheric, well acted, and most of all, believable. This has been next to impossible to find for decades, but thankfully someone has uploaded a pirated copy on the internet recently. If you are a fan of the remake, aliens/UFOs, found footage or just underground cinema in general, do yourself a favor and check it out. But just remember, its only a movie! There is no REAL "McPherson Tape" floating around out there. The name of the family in this original version isn't even McPherson, its Van Heese.
