Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America – 1991 – United States

Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America is a satirical documentary composed entirely of stock footage from sci-fi films, newsreels, advertisements, and training films. In ninety-nine brief chapters (with titles like “Pagan Necromancy”, “Rivers Turn to Blood and Run Upstream”, and “Exterminating Angels”), the film describes how aliens arranged the events of the Cold War by manipulating countries in Latin America. These aliens (called the Quetzalcoatl) are mutant birds who breed with snakes and live in cities of their own excrement in the Earth’s hollow interior. They are responsible for the Kennedy assassination, the rise of Fidel Castro, Howard Hughes’ erratic behavior, the Easter Island Moai, the Bermuda Triangle, and the sinking of Atlantis.
