Reviews:

“Up until its last ten minutes, Alien Abduction could have been an average, if reasonably well made, UFO abduction/conspiracy film. At this point, however, Eric Forsberg tosses in a completely unexpected left-field twist that throws everything that has been assumed about the film throughout completely on its head.” Moria

“Despite the fact Forsberg manages early on to almost pull of some of the “dreamlike” quality he brings to certain scenes and a few of the gore scenes aren’t too bad, Alien Abduction just leaves a horrible taste in your mouth. Things just seem out of place throughout the entire movie, the acting rarely rises above amateurish…” The Video Graveyard

“Some interesting nightmarish and bizarre moments, some gore, lots of bad acting that ruins the film, acceptable special effects, an interesting twist ending, and a weak final scene.” The Worldwide Celluloid Massacre
