‘Cosmic Dawn’ Trailer Reveals a Trippy Alien Abduction Story

You Had Us at Alien Abduction

by Trey Hilburn III

There have been some fantastic alien abduction films over the years. Communion, Fire in the Sky and Fried Barry stand out as three of the most terrifying and interesting. Cosmic Dawn’s story revolves around an alien abduction as well. The trippy visual feast presented in the trailer is all scored by MGM to boot. The trailer is also huge on the sentimentality of the abduction. Being called crazy your entire life for having seen an abduction at a young age is a lovey narrative jumping off point.

The synopsis for Cosmic Dawn goes like this:

After witnessing an alien abduction as a child (and subsequently being told she’s crazy for most of her life) Aurora, now a young woman, joins the UFO cult The Cosmic Dawn after discovering a book written by the group’s leader, Elyse. Aurora’s time at the cult’s remote island compound is marked by miraculous revelations, consciousness expanding flowers, and a burgeoning friendship with Tom, the resident cook. When a fellow cult member starts to display increasingly bizarre behavior, Aurora begins to questionElyse’s sanity (and her own) and starts looking for a way out. Years later, after the dissolution of the cult, Aurora has moved on with her life. She leads a quiet and seemingly normal life. But when Elyse resurfaces in a mysterious video, Aurora is forced to confront her past. Together with Tom, she pursues the ultimate truth about The Cosmic Dawn. Does Elyse really have access to another dimension? Or do her prophesies truly point to mass suicide amongst the surviving cult members?

Cosmic Dawn stars Camille Rowe, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Antonia Zegers, Joshua Burge, Phil Granger and is directed by Jefferson Moneo.

You can check out Cosmic Dawn when it arrives in theaters and on demand beginning February 11.
