In September 2001, I was asked to give my opinion on "The Alien Autopsy Film" distributed by Ray Santilli.
I wrote this article, which to this day is still published on the Internet:
In it I cover what I knew then and, basically, stated that I would like to believe it to be genuine but that I had doubts over its authenticity.
It would appear that I was right.
Just recently, I had the pleasure of watching the "Alien Autopsy" comedy film ("AA") with the British duo "Ant & Dec" on Sky TV. Here are some more details on "AA" from the Internet Movie Database:
But what are we to make of the film?
Well, for my part, I happen to think that the "mock-u-mentary," i.e. a film comedy satire, was quite possibly closer to the truth than some might like to believe.
There are some seriously "laugh out loud" moments in the film. But I believe the kernel of truth is the basic plot line of the movie.
Ray saw for himself the original film(s). He agreed to purchase the film(s) and had to get a loan shark to give him the finance. When he tried to sell it, the film had decomposed to being un-useable, so he "re-enacted" what he remembered, and sold that instead as he feared for his life from the loan shark.
There is also some mention that a chap at Kodak did manage to restore enough of the film footage to "prove" it the genuine article but this has yet to emerge with the proof, or to be provided to independent review.
