To begin, I'm not the biggest "alien" fan. However, I absolutely love the "found footage" genre of films and will take a chance on pretty much any I come across. Let me be clear, the problem with this movie ISN'T in the production, acting, sound, or anything of that nature. The problem I had with the film was the fact that I just didn't find it all that interesting. Honestly, I'm not 100% sure what could have been done to remedy this problem? The entire movie is based on "found footage" recorded by the youngest member of the Morris family, Riley (Riley Polanski). Riley suffers from a form of autism and the video camcorder helps him cope with the world around him. It's a pretty straight forward ride here.

The Morris family is on vacation and decides to take a trip to Brown Mountain in North Carolina. While camping one night, Riley is awaken by strange lights. He wakes his brother, Corey (Corey Eid) and sister, Jillian (Jillain Clare) to inspect what he is looking at. Three lights appear in the sky overhead and quickly shoot out of sight. This is apparently an ongoing phenomenon that occurs in North Carolina and is simply known as the Brown Mountain Lights.

Riley continues to film the vacation and eventually the family gets lost in twisty mountain roads. When they come upon a tunnel, they discover numerous cars that have been vacated suddenly and are blocking the road ahead. When their dad, Peter (Peter Holden) gets out to inspect, the 3 guys head inside while Jillian and her mom, Katie (Katherine Sigismund) go for a bathroom break. While inside the tunnel the 3 come face to face with the problem.

From here on out, it's basically footage of Riley and family rushing around and LOTS of super bright, blue lights shining through a variety of objects.

I actually liked this movie, but I want to start off by noting that it is a found footage movie, something that should be obvious from watching the trailer. If found footage movies aren't you're thing, then look elsewhere for your entertainment this evening. If you're already sick of the found footage genre, and wish it would go away, then don't bother watching this. The number of found footage movies seems to have really taken off in the last few years, I suppose related to the smaller budget and equipment needed to produce them,and "Alien Abduction" in my opinion, is a good entry into the genre. I'm in no way an expert on the technical aspects of movie making, but I felt this one was well done. There was nothing Oscar worthy here of course, but I didn't notice anything that broke my immersion while watching it, and that, in my book, is a win. I thought the movie visually looked quite nice, and I felt the writing and acting were believable. I'm always impressed when a found footage movie can come up with a new reason why the camera should remain on during the events occurring onscreen, and I thought the idea of the camera operator being a young autistic boy who uses it as a means of helping him deal with his environment and emotions rather clever. The creature effects I thought fell into the "less is more category". The aliens aren't onscreen often, and when you do see them, you really don't get much more than a quick glance of only a hand or a face. I found nothing wrong with this, however. They're aliens. In a movie. We've seen aliens in a movie before, we know what they look like, no need to re-invent the wheel. And, unless you plan on bringing something new and awesome into the mix, why waste anymore of an already small budget on something you really don't need? All in all, yeah, it's worth the seven bucks to watch.

This movie is is one of a kind. The film will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end.
It includes everything you would hope for in a film about alien abductions & much more. Matty Beckerman, Cathy Beckerman & Rob Lewis did an excellent writing & producing this fabulous piece of art. The cinematography is beautifully done with some special effects. I saved it so I can watch the movie again & hopefully will catch it on a large theatre screen. Cheers

Other reviewers criticize the fact that there aren't enough aliens. I disagree. I think the best thing going for this film was the unseen terror, and the building suspense- almost. Like Jaws, not seeing the monster too much builds suspense. I've seen enough big budget movies that are long on CGI and short on quality scripts and premises. I thought this movie was a refreshing step in the other direction. They are not breaking new ground with the hand held camera thing, or the found footage thing. But I was entertained.

My biggest problem was the opening weather balloon camera shot sequence. It killed the ending for me because I knew how it ends right from the top. Take that opening sequence and leave it in the end and this movie goes up a whole notch. That completely undermined the building of suspense.

I could have used more in the beginning to get to know the characters better. I wasn't too invested in them because it jumps into the plot pretty quickly. As I watched things unfold, you could have inserted "generic scared girl" running away and it wouldn't have mattered. I know they weren't going for profound character arcs here, but make me care about them a little.

The only other critique I have is that IMHO the mother would have been a lot more distraught as the movie unfolds. She never saw anything at first. I can see portraying her as the stoic rock of the family, but she didn't ask too many questions and accepts the initial turn of events a little too easily.

Overall entertaining, creepy, and good, but a couple of tweaks to the script could have made it a great movie and not just 90 minutes of scary footage.
