The video "original" is shown as a show. The remake, is shown to conceal much more, even is shown as "original" where for psychiatrist, "the child can not be acting". Even add more parts and effects. Would have to see the video "original" complete. Video, which does not appears the girl, the video is very cut and what remains to investigate, is the movie.
In the original video, the gray, is shown completely. In the remake no. And do not take into arms. in the original video, shot him in the house. In the original, is shot out of the house. These cuts are deliberately suppose to create more confusion.A statement:
"One of the criticisms on the Internet was that when showing the video camera does not match with the clock to McPherson."
"When gradually began to leave the truth, ufologists reacted against UPN angry, accusing her of being part of the disinformation campaign. They said that the appearance of Friedman was a ploy to discredit him at the same time to discredit the issue of abductions. But just as the skeptic Michael Shermer appears. "They wanted to discredit him? I think not."The director and script writer Dean Alioto said:
"Yes, Alien Abduction came out a year before Blair Witch, though my original version is UFO Abduction of 1989 . I must admit it has impacted the nefarious cult that has taken my film on UPN. I just wanted to make the film more realistic abduction had never before seen. The way Dick Clark  and the UPN took my project and edited by adding the interview Stanton, was out of my hands, but that's only part of a very strange story."
"This film is the direct antecedent of the Blair Witch Project and probably inspired its execution." Interview with Dean Alioto (Spanish): http://www.arte7.com.uy/Pag/06/old_notes/DeanAlioto.htm
A7: While jobs in the U.S., apparently not so easy for an American independent filmmaker to get local and international distribution. The festivals have become virtually the only windows in order to meet these jobs in several cases that deserve much more impact than they have. What do you think about it?
DA: That is the great risk of any independent filmmaker. Unfortunately, this is not how good it can be your film, but who the stars. The same goes for the Hollywood industry. Not so for festivals such as Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Berlin.
A7: How did you feel with all the handling that those new UPN executives did with the final version of Alien Abduction? Beyond the success in the end as was your work, can you think is fair to people doubt whether what you are seeing is real or not? In an interview you said that this was not your intention.
DA: Yes, it was not my intention. But more worrying for me was the fact that millions of people let their children see this film. Several of them sent me messages saying they could not understand how they could get to sleep with the light on since I had seen. Although they like to feel what it was that intense ride, I felt nothing good to let them see her parents when at the beginning stated: "We warn the viewer that this program contains disturbing images."
A7: What do you think of the "mockumentaries" They were inspired by your movie, like The Blair Witch Project or Cloverfield? Do you think it is still a good strategy to terrorize people, to feel more permeated in what you see?
DA: I think the fans want to feel the reality of terror, and showing them something that could be real, filmed from the point of view of a character will always be scary. The "mockumentary" has become a new tool for that.
