On January 11, 2018 the documentary Alien Intrusion Unmasking the Deception invaded the Opry Mills Stadium 20 in Nashville, Tennessee. The film was presented one-night only, nationwide by Fathom Events. The movie which is available for pre-order on DVD or Blu-Ray is based on Gary Bates’ 2005 book which examines the UFO phenomenon in context of science and religion.
Millions of people have reported seeing UFOs (unidentified flying objects) with some claiming to have had personal encounters with advanced aliens from other parts of the universe. Alien Intrusion Unmasking the Deception was both an educational and entertaining examination of the beliefs, events and experts who have shaped our opinions of UFOs. The documentary opens with a look at science fiction, a genre that embraces space travel and fuels the idea of evolved beings traversing the galaxy and perhaps influencing the evolution of life on earth. Folks are fascinated by this topic, which presents itself as an ongoing mystery to be solved by “ancient alien theorists.” Consider all the cable shows dedicated to UFOs to comprehend how our culture is saturated with the subject.
The Alien Intrusion book along with the documentary presents a different perspective of this phenomenon. First, they explored space travel from a scientific standpoint, concluding that distances, energy required, physics and time makes it highly un-likely that aliens have visited our planet. So how do they account for the numerous encounters and sightings? Alien Intrusion Unmasking the Deception states that over 90% of UFOs can be explained as planes, weather balloons and more. Ok – but what about all the abductions? Their answer is scarier than aliens – demons – the ultimate Star Wars battle between good and evil.
Alien Intrusion Unmasking the Deception featured experts along with experiencers to shine further light on this compelling, controversial topic. The film was narrated by actor, director and producer John Schneider known for his support of faith-friendly films. A number of scientists along with the book’s author/CEO of the apologetics ministry Creation Ministries International shared their insights on aliens. Lastly, Nick Redfern who is highly regarded as a modern day UFO expert provided additional support of the film’s viewpoint. Nick regularly appears on TV shows such as the History Channel’s Monster Quest and UFO Hunters; the National Geographic Channel’s Paranormal and the Syfy channel’s Proof Positive.
Joseph G. Jordan – Mufon National Director, South Korea declares, “warning, watching this film could alter your current beliefs on UFO’s and alien abductions. The polls taken over the past few decades point to hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people who have had what they believe to be an ‘alien encounter’, whether through a UFO sighting, or a so-called alien abduction experience. What the polls don’t tell you, are the number of lives that have been turned upside down because of these experiences. People, who have experienced something so utterly life changing, horrific, and against their will, that it completely changes their world view. Many are even showing signs of suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). What has been missing in the field of UFO research is, a hope for these hurting people. A hope that they can have their lives back. Which, I believe, you will best find presented in this powerful and moving film.”
Pastor Dr. John Hall states, “the movie, Alien Intrusion: Unmasking the Deception is a sobering and scientific analysis, exploring the UFO phenomenon. Beautifully produced, Alien Intrusion is expertly scripted and biblically bold. The long and credible list of eyewitnesses move the film toward an essential question: “What are the origins of these unidentified and mysterious beings?” The truth is a powerful confirmation of the reality of Scripture.” For us it was a well-organized film following a time line from radio days to the present. They examined the scientific and spiritual aspects of aliens. They clearly answered the question of who these beings are and concluded that Jesus Christ is humankind’s only hope.
