A vacationing family encounters an alien threat in this thriller based on the real-life Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon in North Carolina.

Starring: Katherine Sigismund, Corey Eid, Riley Morris, and Jillian Clare

Directed by: Matty Beckerman

Written by: Robert Lewis

  Horror fans have seen a lot of found footage films over the past few years, but not many about aliens. Actually, not long into “Alien Abduction” I was thinking "V/H/S," or even more specifically the alien short film in "V/H/S2". I didn't really care for that short, so "Alien Abduction" had to be better... right?
  After an introduction to what the Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon is about, the audience meets the Morris family, as they head off to the mountains for their camping trip. The movie is shot through a hand-held camera of the youngest child, Riley (Riley Polanski), who is autistic. As far as the camera angles and movement throughout the movie, they aren't too bad. There is no cause for nausea this time around.
  The most annoying thing about this kind of alien movie is how they never want to show the audience the aliens. Yes, aliens usually stay hidden, but from an audience perspective you want to see them. This movie gives the audience some decent looks at the aliens, including when the family has their first encounter with them. The movie also uses a lot of the typically alien flashing white light thing, which does get annoying after awhile.
  While there aren't many scares, the movie does a good job of holding the audience's attention. There is plenty of tension, and suspense as the aliens pursue the family in the dark woods of the mountain. As this pursuit happens, the audience is left wondering what the aliens will do with the family, which adds to the suspense.
  "Alien Abduction" proves to be a better movie than the short alien film in "V/H/S2." The found footage aspect of the film is easy to watch. While more would have been better, there are still some good shots of the aliens. It isn't the scariest alien film, but creates good tension, and suspense. Throw in a good acting good job all around, and I give this movie 2.5 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep
