Default Alien Abduction aka Project Blue Book

IFC Midnight acquired the thriller Alien Abduction and has set a release date of April 4th. For the first time, you can check out an exclusive first look at the film via the promo we have.

When this film first landed on our radar, it was carrying the moniker Project Blue Book. We knew very little about it then and we know very little about it now. Mystery is not such a bad thing. We do know it concerns a vacationing family that encounters an alien threat and is based on the real-life Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon.

Matty Beckerman directed; Hostel‘s Mike Fleiss and Reservoir Dogs‘ Lawrence Bender. Stay tuned for more as it comes in!

For centuries people have been disappearing on and around Brown Mountain, North Carolina

We believe the disappearances are directly linked with the Brown Mountain lights.

The local folklore is full of stories of people who have gone missing after witnessing the lights.

The first encounter dates back to the Cherokee Indians around the year 1200. According to Indian legend, a great battle was fought between the Cherokee and Catawba Indians near Brown Mountain. The Cherokees believed that the lights were the spirits of Indian maidens who went on searching through the centuries for their loved ones who had died in battle.

One of the most famous legends of the Brown Mountain Lights was of a plantation owner who was hunting in the mountains and got lost. His slaves came to look for him and were seen searching through the hills with lanterns. They never returned.

The disappearances inspired one of the most famous blue grass songs “legend of the brown mountain lights” written by Scott Wiseman in the 1960’s.

Another such legend is of a woman who disappeared around 1850, the general suspicion was that her husband had killed her. Almost everyone in the community joined the search for her and one dark night while the search was on the strange lights appeared on Brown Mountain. Some of the searchers thought that this was the dead woman's spirit come back to haunt her murderer and warn the searchers to stop looking for her body. The search ended without a trace of her body and a large group of searchers disappeared themselves.

In 1952 the US Airforce established PROJECT BLUE BOOK an organization to document and debunk UFO phenomenon. Project Blue Book had two goals:

1. To determine if UFOs were a threat to national security, and

2. To scientifically analyze UFO-related data.

During that time PROJECT BLUE BOOK launched an extensive study of The Brown Mountain Lights. The Airforce classified the brown mountain lights as unexplained. Although most Project Blue book studies were released under the freedom of information act the documents of the Brown Mountain study remain classified and in 1969 PROJECT BLUE BOOK was supposedly shut down.

More recently October 2011 hundreds of eyewitnesses claim to have seen the lights. Many captured images and video of the event.

Over 27 people vacationing in a popular nearby camping area went missing that night. Including 3 police officers.
We believe the military is involved and is actively covering up the story. The local police have an open investigation but have come up empty.

These stories have the same theme in common. When the lights are seen people go missing.

All there is for now....more tba asap.

Is this going to be a limited release? Looks interesting, however still need to see more before we can properly judge.

Sounds very interesting. I'm always into Aliens mixed with conspiracies, and they mix well within the found footage department.

Based on what little I seen it looks silly to me but I'd have to see more. Alien Greys just aren't that creepy to me with a few exceptions such as the film Fire in the Sky
