Alien Abduction Reviews

August 21, 2018
Alien Abduction is a great movie. While it does have a lot going against it, you need to trust me on this one.

The events that inspired the movie are more believable than the essential conceit of found footage. It sacrifices the story to constantly insist otherwise.

Alien Abduction isn't done poorly, per se, but it's not at all entertaining.

Today's lesson is "How not to make a found footage film."

Bound to vanish as quickly as a fleetingly glimpsed UFO after a few close encounters with paying viewers.

Although the found-footage genre is growing increasingly stale, it can still provide some genuine - if cheap - thrills. Also, Alien Abduction hits this critic right in the nostalgia gland.
April 4, 2014
Eschewing more sophisticated and higher-degree-of-difficulty moodiness for lots of panicked thrashing about, this found-footage horror tale is an exercise in well-intentioned tedium.

Close encounters of the mediocre kind.

If you're going to go the found-footage route, you might as well try to find a new way to approach the material. Beckerman has.
April 3, 2014
As on the nose as its title, Matty Beckerman's "Alien Abduction" repackages ancient legend for modern audiences in a found-footage story of streamlined efficiency.

As the found-footage horror genre reaches the please-lose-it-again point, "Alien Abduction" arrives to remind us how tedious the camping trip set-up has become as well.
April 3, 2014
As a horror flick, even one held to the impossibly low standards of the found-footage variety, Alien Abduction fails to thrill or chill.
April 2, 2014
Alien Abduction is the same found footage movie we've seen time and time again, just this time with aliens substituted in as the main antagonistic force.
April 2, 2014
Utterly generic, but the filmmakers manage a lot of cheap thrill "bang" for their few bucks.
April 1, 2014
Credit this spirited, uncommonly effective found-footage thriller for breaking the templates promised by its genre and title.

With his first published screenplay, Robert Lewis treads a familiar path, but the devil's in the details and some well handled subtext on preconceived notions.
March 28, 2014
A few jolting scares are deployed throughout, but more difficult to shake is how the story's overacting lambs walk a rather programmatic path toward slaughter--or at least anal probing.
March 27, 2014
A found-footage knock-off of "The Blair Witch Project" that grows more shameless by the minute.
