Win a Copy of Alien Autopsy on DVDAround the mid-Nineties two amateur filmmakers pulled off one of the biggest hoaxes of all time by creating footage of an actual alien undergoing an autopsy back in the Fifties, thereby setting every single news outlet on fire. Years later a film has been made that details every unbelievable instance that happened, and we’re giving it away for free!

That’s right, kids! We’re giving away a total of five (5) copies of Alien Autopsy, and winning yourself one couldn’t be more simple.

All you have to do to win is send us an E-MAIL HERE including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS, and we’ll take care of the rest. Pretty nifty, no?

About the Film
The autopsy allegedly occurred in 1947 after the Army issued a press release that a crashed “flying disc” had been recovered. Soon after, the army reported debris from a classified radar tracking balloon was recovered and the speculation began.

The case was eventually forgotten but resurfaced in the late 1970s when physicist Stanton T. Friedman interviewed Major Jesse Marcel, who was involved with the original recovery and said he thought the military covered up the incident.

Then in 1995, Santilli, a London-based video producer, promoted a 17-minute black and white film purporting to be footage of the autopsy. Fox News used the footage in “Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction”, a TV documentary that caused a sensation and earned the highest ratings of any news broadcast to date. On camera, many well-known figures, including Oscar®-winning make-up artist Stan Winston, cinematographer Allen Daviau, forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht and ufologist Kevin Randle said they considered the autopsy procedures authentic, but stopped short of declaring the being was an alien. After the airing, John Jopsoni, one of the documentary’s directors, claimed he had suspicions the film was a hoax but Fox pressured him to stay silent. Winston and Randle said their observations were distorted in the editing – that they had clearly stated they believed the footage was a hoax.

Cut to 2006 when Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, two of Britain’s most successful television entertainers, director Jonny Campbell and screenwriter William Davies teamed to tell the true story in classic “mocumentary” style. Bill Pullman and Harry Dean Stanton add their touches in key featured roles. Prior to the opening, the bigger-than-life Santilli came clean — sort of — to tease what is revealed in the movie: that because the 1947 footage had deteriorated due to heat/humidity, Santilli and his partner Gary Schoefield had “reconstructed’ footage.

Alien Autopsy will be available on DVD September 21st.
