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.

I am a tough critic of the found footage genre because I like it so much. Well, I personally was pleasantly surprised by Alien Abduction. A family goes on a trip to the great outdoors where of course strange and unusual occurrences happen. I am not going to give a blow by blow. I prefer not give away spoilers. The only part of the movie that I had a tough choking down was the family itself. I am not sure if it was just me, but the mom looks like she isn't much older than kids. And it for some reason kept throwing me off. Other than it's a found footage that is worth a watch in my opinion. ​

Yes more found footage and only more and less sensible than the rest. As another reviewer noted you'd have to suspend belief at some times.

A more believable reason for the camera being around all the time, the autistic boy who compulsively needs it, and your usual and decent home video style filming, although sometimes it seems the one with the camcorder forgets it's supposed to be found footage and some long drawn out shots look like they are out of a regular movie.

For found footage, overall it's pretty good. Really good work with the sound, as it comes up and adds to the scares and dread. It does have some slow build in parts. A lot of it is good, helping to build tension, though some scenes were too long and unnecessary. The movie can move long quickly when it gets going though. Definitely worth a watch.

Of course you have to go into these movies knowing you're looking at found footage. That means not nitpicking every little thing and just falling into it, it's not a high budget perfect sci-fi production you have to pick at little inaccuracies. Even if you do a little bit you can come up with explanations along the lines of Sci-Fi for the things that happen that seem strange; as the movie doesn't directly explain any of the strange things you've got to come up with your own, and if you have a real science fiction addled mind you can come up with a few theories for everything(otherwise sitdown and shutup.. or ask away in the comments if you need help.)
