Why isn't "Alien Abduction" a more popular horror subgenre?
I've read a few "alleged" alien abduction stories and they sound absolutely terrifying.
Because it's so cliched and overplayed it's almost impossible to make it feel fresh.
X-Files has a handful of incredible abductions though. The Duane Barry airplane one and the Mulder's particularly stand out in my memory.
>inb4 Communion peek scene
Most alium movies in the past tried to rip-off Aliens or invasion flicks and today's culture kinda lost the abduction thing.
UFOlogy in the internet age is retarded banter about spacelizards or demons while greys became a one note ayy lmao joke. It's sad.
listen, this part is very important
>implying the sky wasn't full of saucers that day
now this is where things get interesting
>implying you can see even one photo of the craft that hit the pentagon
just think about that for a minute.
>a political view

I miss a good abduction movie. The last good one I saw was the short from VHS 2. There is the Fourth Kind "based on a true story" movie, where none of it is true and it ultimately sucks and makes no sense.
Close Encounter, Fire in the Sky and Communion seem to be the only good ones I can think of. The last two are good as abduction movies, not great movies.
Intruders (1992), based on the Budd Hopkins books was pretty spoopy. It's made for TV, but pretty alright, holds up really well, I really recommend it, if you haven't seen it.
There's also the UFO Incident from '75, about the Hill case, very old-school with cheap effects, but sometimes creepy in a very comfy way. It's hard to explain.
>tfw my bad dreams are seen by my logger buddies
>tfw my bad dreams scare four grown men out of the woods
>tfw my bad dreams hide me from the world for five days
altered states suck.
There is some type of shared delusions, yes. I believe there is a level of telepathy as I've experienced a brief flash of it once with my bros. Yeah it sounds like bullshit but it was just 100% legit. Aliens are some sort of mind meme.
What's the name of the 'real' footage of aliens attacking a family in their home? Theres like a birthday party or something and then aliens show up. I remember it being pretty long but i watched it when i was a kid so i could be making most of this up
Mcpherson TAPE, I mean. Fuck.
I don't know, but I had a dream like that a few nights ago. I was flying over my street in saucer, planing to take myself away. Didn't really make sense, but that's dreams for you.
Spoopy synchronity, eh?
If I recall: I don't think the people of the Alaskan town had any UFO stories. I think they took a town with an above average number of missing persons cases and just said "UFOs, true story, bring money." I can't find any stories from supposed abductees in Nome.
Honestly the greys were my biggest fear as a child. A product of the late 80's, pretty much everything UFO based we've mentioned here had come out or was about to. Ghost and monsters were silly: but greys could be out there. Grew up in the hey-day of grey alien fiction.
But these kids and their ayy lamos crack me up with their space weed and squinting
I prefer the remake
After seeing the so called "experts" comments and the intro credits i thought it was real until the ending
I've seen a UFO before. I remember looking at it and feeling the most intense feeling of sheer terror and horror as I gazed upon it. It was the worst feeling in the world, like being scared beyond imagination... can't really describe it. Kinda like going down a roller coaster or being weightless briefly but mingled with indescribable levels of feelings of dread and terror. It was also emitting a very strange mechanical sounding pitch that I've never heard before. I assume this was the thing that was scaring me so much. This whole experience lasted about 10 seconds I believe, but it felt like hours...
The thing looked like your typical saucer btw and I remember it glowing faintly and was a dull orange colour.
Seriously remembering this gives me the chills and I swear I'm not making this up. The only place I've felt comfortable sharing the experience I had is on 4chan. Figures.
Oh and also I was 12 when this happened, it happened outside of London Ontario in a horse camp during the summer. It was late and I had left my tent to go urinate in the bushes When I looked up and saw it.
After it happened I literally went screaming back to my tent and passed out, was so scared and stressed. I acted out terribly for the rest of the month too, was so angry and stressed and scared and anxious that id see the thing again. Ended up being sent home. Had nightmares for years, I still freak out sometimes remembering it in the dark like I am now, but I basically deal with it mentally by pretending it was something I imagined and treating it like a joke, because honestly nothing really else happened to me like this so I doubt I'll ever have to experience the terrible feeling of sheer terror again. Fuck aliens, they're real btw.
I swear on my goddamn life I am making none is this up either. Lol.
I wasn't sleeping at home or even near my street when I dreamt it (?), though.
Yeah I can relate, back in the mid 90's there was a bunch of UFO documentaries on the science fiction channel. I would always watch them because they came on before Star Trek and other shows, some of them were just complete NOPE-tier. I was affraid but I kept watching them because I wanted to know more I guess.
Hell yeah. I recall Discovery Channel would sometimes stop playing documentaries for a bit of UFO stories. Then you hear the wrong story and you're left awake half a night.
Protip: Earth is encased in a holographic representation of an uninhabited universe.
Our alien overlords do this to keep us from discovering intergalactic civilization.
This preserves us as a farm for harvesting loosh generated by human suffering.
Hard to say but it was past the trees so at least 40 feet.
The feeling I experienced was not natural, the ship was definitely doing something to my head. Trust me I wish it never happened. At least I know aliens exist, but it's really pointless knowledge, can't prove anything and talking about it just makes you look dumb.
>This whole experience lasted about 10 seconds I believe, but it felt like hours...
It's not impossible that it was a full on abduction but you only remember some moments of it, that's why it was such a traumatic memory.
Take it easy, though, no reason to stress yourself about it. If it's a real thing, it happened to a shitload of people (maybe every one of us, but y'know, misissing memories and whatnot) without causing much or any harm. It's scary as fuck but there's no real danger.
>Then you hear the wrong story and you're left awake half a night.
Yeah there was a few times where 11 year old me just decided it would be better to play video games all night instead of going to bed. Come to think of it, I'm glad I remember that.
No, like at an angle. I was looking ahead of me. It was fairly close which is why I'm saying 40 feet.>>64534075
I don't remember blacking out I remember freaking out after it flew off past the trees and then passing out in my tent. Plus I had no marks and shit that abductees usually have. Thanks for the kind words anon
I like how the audience laughs out loud at Stan's stories and media during his speeches, yet still sort of plays along with him as if out of politeness. Not a potent hoaxer, but a likable and entertaining guy for sure.
I think they understand that he's bringing lightheartedness to it. He cracks jokes, they laugh. Not that hard to get
