 Alien Abduction (2014)Review:

This first movie by Matty Beckerman is another one to add to the long list of low quality new releases that capitalize on the found footage aspect, at the expense of the rest. Alien Abduction is not as bad as some of the very bad new found footage such as Apollo 18, Willow Creek or The Last Exorcism II, but it is far from brilliant either.

Thereee is a few good jump scares and the overall atmosphere of the movie is kind of tense. This for the good points. The rest (meaning the story, characters, and filming) is mediocre. The story is meaningless: it is the very basic UFO/Alien abduction plot and absolutely nothing else is explained and no risks are taken. I did like the fact that we actually get to see the aliens, but I was disappointed by the fact that they are your stereotypical idea of an alien, pretty much a man in a Roswell suit.

As for the action, the hand camera is way too shaky and of poor quality to appreciate any of it. The characters themselves are ok, but their reaction doesn’t feel natural. I mean (spoiler ahead), the kids just lost their father and are acting for half of the movie almost as if nothing happened.

To me, Alien Abduction is not a great piece of cinema, but a cheap found footage horror than might be best than the worst, but far worse than the best…follow me? Instead, I would recommend to fans of alien movies to watch the much better The Fourth Kind if you’re into found footage, and Dark Skies as well as Extraterrestrial if you’re not.
