documentary on UFO abduction

UFO abduction documentary shown in 6-parts

Intruders-Abductees Speak Out! is an extremely even-keeled, 48 minute long documentary done for Canadian television in 2008. It was written and directed by Michael MacDonald.

The content of the film will be familiar to anyone who has looked into the UFO abduction phenomenon. What sets this documentary apart is how extremely serious it takes the subject, a topic usually reserved for exploitation and derision. Thankfully, this production does NOT have anyone playing the role of debunker or skeptic. Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs speak at length along with a series of extremely compelling abductees who share their emotional challenges.

The people claiming the direct contact experiences include Corinna Sables, author of The Collectors.

Michael MacDonald (left) was also a friend of Mac Tonnies. Both of them worked together on an episode of Paranormal Investigator, a TV series for Canadian television from 2008. I have a DVD copy of this episode, titled Life on Other Plantets.

Michael's resume includes a handful of UFO related topics. That said, he's had his own set of odd life experiences, and one of his stories was featured in Mac Tonnies book THE CRYPTOTERRESTRIALS. I even got to draw Michael as a little boy for one of the illustrations. Michael also shows up early in the genesis of this blog. Seems like we have a few things in common.

I went to watch it and noticed I'd already clicked a 'thumbs up'. I'd watched it at some point in the past.

It's a very good documentary.
