The McPherson Tape

The McPherson Tape

Directed by Dean Alioto

A decade before THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT redefined the horror landscape, there was THE MCPHERSON TAPE. On October 8th, 1983, the McPherson family gathered together to celebrate the 5th birthday of Michelle, the littlest member of their household. Everything was captured on VHS by Michael McPherson and his new camcorder. Including the alien invasion.

October 8th, 1983. Michelle McPherson’s 5th birthday. Everything was captured on VHS… including the alien invasion.

Really well done for a small cast and very low budget with just one camera! The aliens weren't much to look at, but hey, it all went together for a good story!

hahaha okay this wasn't scary BUT it felt soooo much like an actual home-video, which I absolutely loved. It was kinda corny and goofy but absolutely a lovely time. I loved this

Great movie! Suspenseful all the way through and a good albeit abrupt ending.

It's not much, but it's amazing to see a piece of film history.
