MORGANTON, N.C. – The mysterious lights of Brown Mountain are front and center in the new movie Alien Abduction. Director Matty Beckerman, Producer Cathy Beckerman and cast members Jeff Bowser, Katherine Sigismund and Corey Eid were in Morganton tonight for the film’s premier.

"There's an 11-year-old autistic kid who sees the world through his video camera,” said Matty Beckerman. “And we see this family go on a vacation, they're camping, they're in the woods and having a great time. Then they see the lights over their camp ground. From that moment, things go off the rails."

The “lights” depicted in the movie have brought people to the region for years.

"We think their friendly, said Ed Phillips, Director of Tourism, Burke County. “They follow people; they may come up and interact with a person. They're round orbs, maybe four or five feet in diameter that shrink in size and grow in size. Science has failed to explain them. Paranormal researchers have failed to explain them."

Theplot linee for Alien Abduction is based on those legendary encounters recorded through time.

“All the reports dating back to the Cherokee Indians where large groups of people go missing here,” said Beckerman. “It's not one or two, it's a few hundred at a time, throughout history have gone missing.


Phillips

s expects the movie to generate more interest in Brown Mountain and Burke County in general. Beckerman agrees.

“I'd love to see tourism increase here,” Beckerman said. “I'd love to see people actually come out here, take pictures of the lights, camping out, creating businesses around the Brown Mountain Lights. It's great for the economy. It's terrific to create jobs. It's terrific to bring people to Western North Carolina."
