Decent, but unspectacular, is the way that I would characterize the majority of The Asylum’s in-house productions. Last month we saw what happens when one of their movies is worse than the majority (Intermedio), and this month, it’s what happens when we’re finally given a great movie; Alien Abduction.

Disturbing, disgusting, and all together messed up, Alien Abduction packs on the gore, presents a nice twist to a conventional storyline, and despite a low budget, looks well polished during most of its runtime. It’s thoroughly impressive, which is a surprise considering this is the Asylum production that I expected the worst from.

After the expected opening that has four friends camping in the forest getting abducted by some freaky looking aliens, our main character Jean wakes up to discover that she appears to be safe. She is in a rehabilitation center run by the military, with all the higher-ups and crew having been abducted themselves in the past. A frantic and frightened Jean is told that she will be allowed to go home once her mind has been properly educated, but it becomes readily apparent as time goes on that they’re not telling the truth. Now Jean must plan her escape, all while fighting through the various staff members seemingly intent on killing her and attempting to rescue her now mindless friends.

While the low budget makes certain scenes come off as a tad bit too cheap, and the script becomes muddled shortly before the climax, this is still one hell of an effort from The Asylum. They show themselves once again to not be like Full Moon or Rapid Heart Pictures (David DeCoteau’s production company). The script is in no way a happy one, as it’s all together demented. Add to that a heaping helping of gore, and you’ve got yourselves a movie that is a must-see.

DVD: There’s a very low key, and dare I say boring commentary track attached, along with one The Asylum’s typical behind the scenes featurette that delivers the goods.
