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.
