Here’s a lengthy synopsis out of previous film markets:
“A terrifying sci-fi story inspired by dramatic found footage, ‘Alien Abduction’ (aka ‘Project Blue Book’) preys on our fear of the unknown as we follow an average American family who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
While driving to a campsite in the Brown Mountains of North Carolina, the Morris family’s GPS malfunctions and they are lead to a remote tunnel surrounded by abandoned vehicles. The father, Peter Morris is abducted leaving his traumatized wife and children to flee and seek refusge in a nearby cabin. There, they are horrified to learn that strange lights in the nearby mountains have been linked to alien abduction and human sacrifice for centuries.
When their attempts to alert the authorities are intercepted by the deadly extraterrestrial threat, the surviving members of teh family find themselves under siege. A brutal and bloody attack unfolds as we witness the horror through the lens of the youngest child’s video camera.“
