I just saw this movie yesterday and I must say I was really disappointed.
The alleged "real" footage used in this movie is bogus and it should be illegal to claim that it was "real". I heard it was recreated "real" footage but even if it was, anybody with a logical brain can surmise it as complete nonsense. If that kind of thing was really caught on film (people levitating and becomming paralized DURING hypnosis, LOL c'mon), and is supposedly happening all over the world, it would have been captured on film hundreds of times and it'd be all over the internet and media.
At one point in the "real" footage, the abductee, during hypnosis, appears to be possessed and starts chanting something (while levitating) in an ancient Somoan language in a demonic tone, then later on an interpreter comes in and interprets her as saying "I am God". Then later on Milla's character (who was the abductee) comes in and says, "it can pretend to be God".
It seems to me the filmaker has an alterior motive here. It's like someone painting blood on the eyes of a Jesus statue, trying to get people to believe in "God"......"There is no other intelligent life out there. Ooooooooo look, the aliens from outer space are really demons, so you better believe in "God".
It's a slap in the face of human progress, and it sucks. Don't waste your time and money.
The way I perceived it, the attempts to recover the memories triggered a "mental fail safe" in the patients which resulted in the injuries (and suicide for some) they sustained during their sessions. The people were forced to forget what had happened to them yet the image of the owl, probably implanted as part of the memory wipe, seemed to creep into their concious.
The language you're referring to was Sumerian and was translated. The part you refer to about God, was that one time and nowhere else in this movie. If anything, it left me with the impression that the alien's set themselves up as God to the ancient civilisations or were what the ancients interacted with that gave them that impression.
I'm in the middle of cooking dinner at the moment so I'll have to cut this short unfortunately.
