When I picked up the DVD Alien Autopsy, I thought it was a documentary on the alleged crash of a UFO in Roswell in 1947. Instead, it turned out to be a very entertaining story of two Brits, who ended up producing a film of a "fake" autopsy.
One of the characters, Ray, is a conman, who hustles bootlegged videos and other items for a living. His friend, Gary, is a legal assistant, who's trapped in a dead -end job. They're approached by a man, who says he shot a live film of autopsies on alien beings, who crashed in Roswell. He offers to sell it to them for $30,000. To get enough money to buy the film, Ray must borrow money from a shady Austrian art dealer. The film appears to be legit; however, the celluloid begins to deteriorate quickly, and Spike starts to panic. He goes to a film expert, who doesn't give much hope for restoration, but agrees to give it a try. In the meantime, Ray talks Gary into putting together a fake replacement film with the help of some friends. Despite many difficulties, the film is completed, and surprisingly they are able to dupe the public. Demand for copies skyrockets. Ray is invited on the talk show circuit. Meanwhile, the film expert is able to restore a portion of the original film, and the results are startling! Just as the money starts pouring in, things take a turn for the worse.
This is a very funny movie, with great acting and a great storyline. By the way, it's based on fact! You should look at this "sleeper". I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
