The image posted below was part of the ‘deteriorated original film,’ used to recreate the well-known UFO alien film of the Roswell Alien crash.
At least that’s what Ray Santilli, the man behind the “recreation” of the event which stunned UFO hunters in 1995, says.
Spyros Melaris, director of the infamous video, where we could see an alleged dissection being performed on the body of an alien after the crash near Roswell, revealed that everything was a total and absolute lie. It’s a regretful hoax.
The film released in 1995 convinced UFO hunters and Ufologists around the world that aliens did crash in Roswell and that hr government was part of a massive conspiracy.
But, to the disappointment of many alien hunters, the video at least may have been nothing more than an elaborate hoax.
To prove it, this week, and to the repercussions said by Melaris, Santilli sent an image to British newspaper Express that show frames of the original ‘damaged’ film.
“To be clear. I was not there in 1947, so I cannot say for sure that it is an alien, but there is an original film, “says Santilli, who also states that the tape was obtained in 1992 while looking for material for a documentary about Elvis Presley.
“We posted ads in local newspapers on the East Coast, looking for information on anyone who photographed or filmed Elvis in 1954. So we managed to obtain a large collection of material, “explains the television producer.
“That was when a cameraman in Cleveland asked us if we were interested in anything else … At the time we had no clue about Roswell, but he claimed to be someone who worked for the army and told us about the alien autopsy.”
Santilli points out that it took two years of negotiations to reach an agreement and buy the film.
“By the time we got it, it was so deteriorated that we could not use it, so we decided to recreate it.”
However, when the documentary Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction was released, Santilli and his team did not specify that the video of the autopsy they had provided was a recreation based on a damaged version of the original film.
Despite this fact, the producer—who made a lot of many on the subject—claims that he did the right thing:
“All great works of art, because of their conditions and the fact they were very old, had to be restored several times and have very little of the original image. We did the same with the movie about the alien autopsy. ”
What Santilli said seems to be back the story of Gareth Watson, who played the role of doctor observing the procedure in the fraudulent film.
In a statement to researcher Philip Mantle earlier this year, he said:
“At that time, Ray Santilli and Gary Shoefield showed me a VHS copy of an unedited footage of very poor quality, where the autopsy of an alleged alien being was performed.”
“They decided that due to its condition it had no commercial value, so they decided to recreate it. The original film was ruined to the point that what was visible in the film could very well be mistaken for the Yeti.”
