The Abduction

We just got done watching the most amazing episode of Paranormal Witness.  Terrifying and moving.  I couldn't recommend a program more highly.

We just kept looking at each other saying "My God, this really happened."

Click below for a sneak peek:

I saw these guys on another documentary a while ago, but it wasn't as creepy as this one. Eerie stuff!

Rot said...

Yeah, Paranormal Witness tells such a scary tale. Such amazing production value. I've been aware of Walton's story for many years and it was great to see them cover the blonde humanoid part of it.

That one guy who choked up at the end, saying he was so afraid to look into the dark. Chills.

Yeah, I watched it too. I was amazed that the first aliens were portrayed as the reptilian kind ( which is a species many have reported). That was different from the film. The humanoid ones were creepy. Just thinking they are out there and look like us is weird. Yes, Rot, when that guy choked up about the dark is when I was convinced it really happened. He has PTSD.

If I'm not mistaken, these are the guys on which the movie "Fire in the Sky" is based...

Rot said...

Yup. Fire in the Sky was based on the Travis Walton story.

Rot,

So I didnt get to see it yet. But I gotta know, did you atleast lose a little sleep over it? Was it as feaky as you expected?

I DVR'd it and haven't watched the whole thing yet. I remember hearing about this story when I was a wee nip. Scary for sure!!!

Rot said...

adam, it's strange. I didn't really lose sleep over it. Odd because I was thinking about it whenever I woke up, but it was more than just creeped out because I saw something scary. It was more of a giant pressing question of trying to comprehend what it all meant. The episode was really emotional...when you see a bunch of old dudes getting choked up recalling this stuff, and hearing a lie detector expert say he believes exactly what they're all saying...it's pretty huge.

So, oddly, I wasn't as much creeped out as I was trying to ponder it all.

As big a fan of "Fire in the Sky" as I am, I have to say that this version of the story was much more unsettling to me. Rot, you nailed the reason why: seeing these old timers go from sort of chuckling at their young, foolish former selves to being stone cold serious and then obviously traumatized with tears welling up in their eyes. There's real pain in the memory of what happened for every person interviewed. Even the police were freaked out.

And the guys with the Geiger counters??? I didn't know that part of the story...

Rot said...

dude...I yelled a big fat F word at that point. I never heard of it either...what the frig?
