• Spyros Melaris, the former magician who concocted the 1995 “documentary film”, ‘Alien Autopsy’, has come clean about how he did it. The film, claiming to show a pot-bellied alien body being examined in 1947 government pathologists in protective suits, actually shows a foam body filled with cow and lamb organs from a local butcher. He considered using raspberry jelly for the ‘brain’.
• The whole thing was filmed in a north London flat in 1995. Melaris spliced his film footage onto a 1947 Pathe newsreel to fool experts at Kodak. Said Merlaris, “Our whole film was made up, but we hung it on little elements of truth. Something crashed in Roswell and we pinned the film on this being a body that could have been picked up in that crash.”
• British musician and filmmaker, Ray Santilli claimed to have received it from a cameraman who worked at Roswell. ‘Alien Autopsy’ was broadcast on television in 33 countries, aired three times on Fox television, and was viewed by 11.7 million people. In 2006, Santilli admitted it was fake – but said that it is a ‘staged reconstruction’ of a genuine alien dissection film he had been shown in 1992.
• Melaris says, “It was a giggle. That was all it was.” It took him years to realise that Ray Santilli, who financed the film, had actually made millions from it. He now plans to write his own tell-all book.
• [Editor’s Note] In further research, Ray Santilli claims that he purchased the rights and video to the actual 1947 Roswell alien autopsy, and that the famous grainy photo is an actual photo of event. But the original footage he acquired was too grainy and deteriorated for a full video, so he recreated part of the scene for the video that he ultimately released. So the “alien autopsy” film Santilli released in 1995 was not a hoax but a “restoration or recreation” based on and containing some real footage. “Let me just be clear,” said Santilli, “I was not there in 1947, so I can’t say for sure if it is an alien, but it is the original camera footage.” “By the time we got back (the film) had deteriorated to a certain extent and we were not able to use it, and (we) recreated a fair section.” When the recreated footage was released, however, Mr Santilli and his team did not make it clear it was a remake of poor quality original footage, which Santilli still possesses. The recreation video was produced inside a north London flat. The “dead alien” was sculpted by motion picture special effects expert John Humphreys, using cow and lamb organs from a local butcher shop. The 1940’s-era surgeons’ outfits and medical equipment were supplied from prop providers in the UK and USA. The 16mm film was then spliced with an original Pathe newsreel to help convince experts from Kodak that it could be real.
According to Linda Moulton Howe and Richard Dolan, a Memorandum by Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green dated March 23, 2001, giving his “professional evaluation of the ‘Alien Autopsy Film/Video and other related information”, was leaked by physicist Eric W. Davis to Robert Bigelow and revealed that this 1995 Santilli video of an alien autopsy of a “6-fingered, 6-toed” alien entity is in fact real. The being was retrieved from a crashed saucer in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Dr. Green “was briefed three different times during and after his tenure at the CIA on topics relevant to UFOs and the Roswell Incident Alien Autopsy.” Dr. Kit Green confirmed that the “Alien Autopsy film/video is real, the alien cadaver is real, and the cadaver seen in the film/video is the same as the photos Kit saw at the Pentagon during briefing # 2.” Dr. Green’s career began in 1969 as a Senior Division Analyst for neurosciences at the CIA. In the mid-1970s, Dr. Green was a program manager for Controlled Remote Viewing research.
In 1995, a video showing the gruesome autopsy of an alien by ‘government pathologists’ in protective suits shocked the world – and made millions. Now the film-maker (and ex-magician) behind it revealed how the ‘Alien Autopsy’ film fooled the world (and inspired a ‘classic’ film starring Ant and Dec). Spyros Melaris says that the film claiming to show an alien body being examined in 1947 actually shows a foam body filled with cow and lamb organs from a local butcher.
Melaris told The Sun that he considered using raspberry jelly for the ‘brain’ but rejected it as ‘too dark’ as he filmed in a north London flat in 1995. He spliced his film footage onto a 1947 Pathe newsreel to fool experts at Kodak – and a documentary on the film aired three times on Fox, being viewed by 11.7 million people. Merlaris said, ‘Our whole film was made up but we hung it on little elements of truth. ‘Something crashed in Roswell and we pinned the film on this being a body that could have been picked up in that crash.’
Ray Santilli claimed to have received it from a cameraman who worked at Roswell – and it was broadcast on television in 33 countries. Melaris sourced 1940s surgeons’ outfits and medical instruments from prop providers in the UK and USA.
The ‘government pathologists’ filmed dissecting the pale, potbellied corpse of the extraterrestrial being were his brother and then girlfriend in the Camden apartment. In 2006, Santilli admitted it was fake – but said that it is a ‘staged reconstruction’ of a genuine alien dissection film he had been shown in 1992. Melaris says, ‘It was a giggle. That was all it was. It was not supposed to last 22 years. It was supposed to last a week or 10 days.’ Melaris says it took him years to realise that Ray Santilli, who financed the film, had actually made millions from it. He now plans to write his own tell-all book.
