New show to cover iconic alien abduction case

Were the Hills really abducted by aliens ? Image Credit: PD - Max Pixel
'Captured' will tell the story behind the UFO encounter and alleged abduction of Barney and Betty Hill.
The new project, which will be a collaboration between Bryce and Jackie Zabel's Stellar Productions and LA-based Alta Global Media, will chronicle the lives of the Hills before, during and after their mysterious encounter with an apparent extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The show will be based on the book 'Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction', which was written by late UFO researcher Stanton Friedman and Betty Hill's niece Kathleen Marden.

The production has been in the planning stages for quite some time - we even wrote about it back in 2015 - however it looks as though, after years of uncertainty - it is finally going ahead.

The story of what happened to the Hills remains one of the most iconic in all of UFOlogy.
The couple had been driving home from a vacation to the Niagara Falls on the evening of September 19th, 1961, when they spotted an unusual bright light in the sky and pulled over to watch it.

After resuming their journey however what had originally been a point of passing interest soon turned in to something a lot more sinister when they became convinced that the light had started to pursue their vehicle along the remote country roads.

Eventually the UFO turned and descended towards them, forcing Barney to hit the breaks to avoid a collision. When he got out of the car with his binoculars for the second time to take a closer look he was certain that he could see a number of 'humanoid figures' looking back at him from inside it.

The most intriguing part of the Hills' experience however involved an apparent period of missing time during their return trip which, when later recalled under hypnosis, allegedly saw the couple being carried aboard an extraterrestrial spacecraft and subjected to an unknown medical procedure.

With both Betty and Barney now deceased however, we may never know for sure what truly happened.

Keels mothman book was about 15% mothman as there wasnt much to that story, keel rambles on about his phone being bugged with cigarette loads and odd unsubstantiated claims of odd experiences that dont really mean anything. This was an orginal pic of mothman, A great likeness to an angry owl,

Right, and its an early sketch of the alleged mothman, if you go pull up a story called "dover demon" that basically mothman without a publicists.

He was recycling and expanding stuff from his earlier books UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse and Our Haunted Planet. I'm sure during this period he saw those big bucks Van Daniken was making from Chariots of the Gods and figured he could get in on that racket. His earlier books were in the typical Chariots of the Gods style of listing supposed mysteries and proposing ridiculous explanations, but Mothman put Keel (fictionally) right in the middle of everything. This was a brilliant idea because it gave the story a beginning and an end and made every crazy thing sound completely real. You have to gi... [More]

You reply as if you believe im not well familiar with keels work, mothman the book was a waste of a read, it droned on not unlike Patrick Bateman giving a undeserved sense of self worth review of huey Lewis newest album. It might have been keels plan to be the focus at the time but imho it failed the average reader couldnt follow keel as they could Daniken hense why denni had a major film at the time and is well known and keel is largely forgotten. The 02 movie was just claptrap for $$$, it was a hodge podge, it was vaugely based on the folklore as much or more than keels book like tacking on... [More]

It sure didn't sound like you were. Did you mention Operation Trojan Horse or Our Haunted Planet? These books are important if you want to understand how Keel developed the story in Mothman Prophecies. I guess I and my friends must have been very exceptional ten year old boys because we had no problem following the story in The Mothman Prophecies. Nearly everyone I met in college ten years later had read the book or was familiar with it. That's why they made a major motion picture starring Richard Gere based on the book fifteen years after that which was more successful than the dull German Ch... [More]
