Director Jonny Campbell
teams with screenwriter William Davies
for this satirical look at the notorious, purportedly genuine "Alien Autopsy" video that fascinated viewers worldwide before being exposed as an elaborately staged hoax in 1995. Aired in America by the Fox network, the Alien Autopsy video caused an overnight sensation among UFO enthusiasts while proving just how susceptible to hype the media truly is. Now viewers can follow the adventures of ambitious British pranksters Gary (Ant McPartlin
) and Ray (Declan Donnelly
) as they execute one of the largest-scale practical jokes ever attempted. Bill Pullman
and Harry Dean Stanton
co-star in a comedy that encourages viewers to believe none of what they hear, and only half of what they see.
