Based on true events, the story follows Ray (Declan Donnelly) and Gary (Ant McPartlin) who are responsible for footage from a supposed alien autopsy from 1947 shown around the world. Ray claims to have seen and purchased the original footage from the 1947 Roswell alien autopsy. But the film has been so corrupted that Ray convinces his friends to help him “recreate” the footage to satisfy his loan shark. But things get out of hand when the Ray gets a taste of fame and fortune.
The outrageous farce incorporates plenty of humor and wit. Unfortunately, as an American, it’s very hard to understand a great deal of what the main actors, Donnelly and McPartlin, are saying because of their accent and unfamiliar vernacular. Yet the plot and pacing hold up and are easy to follow. Bill Pullman plays the director of the documentary, with too few scenes. Science fiction enthusiasts who remember the original Fact or Fiction with Jonathan Frakes will get a kick out of this retelling as a fictitious documentary. And even those unfamiliar with the story, should find the humor and outrageous events highly entertaining.
Alien Autopsy is available now on DVD.
