If someone remembers a TV movie about a group of people, perhaps a family that are in a cabin but they are surrounded by extraterrestrials. UPDATE I remember it wasn't a comedy it was a kind of horror tv movie or tele-theater. At the end the aliens get into de cabin or the house and their heads glow. I think it was produced late 70´s or early 80s.

    Hi! This question needs more details before we can try to answer it. Please edit anything else you can remember into the question. Even what language it was in or what TV station you saw it on... anything. – DavidW Jun 5 '19 at 0:01

The Pod People (1983); MST3K 3x03 (1991)

The Pod People (also known as Extra-Terrestrial Visitors) began as a horror script about an alien terrorizing the members of a rock band trapped in a cabin in the woods. Although "cute" elements — the friendship between a younger alien and a human child — were added to make the film resemble E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), it retained the horror plot.

The film is perhaps best known for being the subject of a 1991 episode ("Pod People", 3x03) of the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (commonly abbreviated as MST3K). MST3K pokes fun at notoriously cheesy science fiction and fantasy films.

The MST3K YouTube channel has a short video about this episode, including clips of the original movie and the episode's framing story:


More details would be helpful, but this might be Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County as per movie where aliens invade a farm

This might be Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County. It aired in 1998 on UPN and was a remake of an earlier 1989 "found footage" film, The McPherson Tape. It's not animated. It involves the McPherson family joining for Thanksgiving dinner. The descriptions have a lot of bits about the lights being out, so I assume it's at night. It does have a ray-gun, but it burns people, and involves at least two aliens.

  • My first thought as well, Alien Abduction....I wonder if OP saw the old original? – DannyMcG Jun 6 '19 at 9:57
  • I recall watching this when it came out (the remake). It was played at the end of a "news broadcast" where the talking-heads repeatedly stated things like "you should judge whether this is real" and such, while rather obviously smirking. That and the really terrible acting and writing make it obviously a mockumentary. I was surprised to read people were actually confused by this, although I still find it difficult to believe. – Maury Markowitz Jun 6 '19 at 16:45
