"Cloud Ten pictures try their hand at Sci-fi with "Deceived" and they don't do a bad job of it. It stars Judd Nelson, Louis Gossett Jnr and others. A group of experts are called in to investigate a message of unknown origin thought to eminate from space. The writers give us an interesting and thought provoking story as well as making it quite thrilling. SPOILER ALERT!! Compare it if you will to the movie "Contact" where "aliens" make contact with us. The question asked here is how do we know where these messages really come from and what happens if the "aliens" are in fact evil spirits. All in all, an interesting film with good performances by it's lead actors. Watch this if you are interested in aliens and the like and if you like to think. Thanks."

"While promising to open the door to an entirely new type of warfare, a top-secret Pentagon experiment designed to unleash paranormal powers suddenly goes wildly out of control.
Meanwhile, an observatory in the Sierra Nevada Mountains receives a confirmed extraterrestrial signal. With evidence that the two are somehow connected, Colonel David Garrett (LOUIS GOSSET JR.) rushes to the Observatory with his team of commandos.
The billionaire who funded the Observatory gathers his own team, led by brilliant computer expert Jack Jones (JUDD NELSON, The Breakfast Club, New Jack City). Wanting to share the news of this unique event with the world news organizations, the two teams attempt to verify its source. As the beam is repeatedly received and recorded at the Observatory, the tension among the teams mounts. And those who have heard the beam become obsessed and dangerous.
The signal has a dark secret -- and an even more ominous source. Before long, envy, lust and greed explode and create a sinister world of obsession and murder. There is only one way out of this disaster, but even if the team believes it, they may remain deceived.
This movie is one of the most rewarding films you will ever watch. It takes you through a maze of truth and reality in which your only reprieve are your instincts. Trust them: check this great film out!

"WOWSERS!!!! We are talking beyond WOW here!This is a MUST watch!!!!...I have always been a scifi fan loving movies that can hold you on the edge of your seat with things from out of this world. But lately, it seems Hollywood thinks that it takes sex, nudity, and profanity to hold people to their seats. So I had given up on my favorite genre of movies..... that is until now! Decieved uses more than just special effects to hold you. The characters have depth and carry you through the movie from beginning to end. They have made the good vs. evil movie into one with characters that you can love and some that I know I was moved to extremely dislike. They hold you right until the end with this one! Cloud Ten Pictures and Andre van Heerden did their best job yet with this film and I really look forward to seeing more things like this come from this great Canadian film company...While they really drew my attention with their movie Revelation...this one just broke through all the boundaries and brought forth a movie that has quickly become my favorite movie! I've bought the video and have watched it over and over and still will watch it again! And I will be buying copies to give to friends and relatives because it is such a powerful film that watching it just once isn't enough!I do hope that Hollywood stands up and takes notice. You can have a good movie without the sex and language that keep so many movies out of the homes because the kids can't watch them. Some of us adults are tired of Hollywood thinking that we are too stupid to look beyond the sex and 'hip' language to find a film that actually has some great value to it and a real story also. And how great it was to see "Smitty" a Christian woman not made to appear stupid, foolish, or a prude. Judd Nelson, a self confessed computer geek, made me proud to be one myself! And Lou Gossett Jr gave the performance of his career in my opinion.Hollywood take notice! If you are looking for a good thriller with romance, comedy, and strong characters and a good story line, that you are not afraid of who might enter the room while you are watching it, then I strongly recommend that you rent or buy Decieved today! You won't be disappointed and you may walk away with a new appreciation for a solid story line and a few good basic principles in life!"
The Christian answer to "Contact"

Sci-fi/paranormal thriller based on SETI Home & U.S. military paranormal experimentation -- almost all the action takes place in a privately-owned observatory in the Sierra Nevadas. Compares well with the Hollywood movie, "Contact." Surprisingly, I liked it a lot up until the end ...
Besides the obvious "Contact" comparison, "Deceived" seems to me like a grown-up version of Bill Meyers' "Forbidden Doors" (a series of novels for Christian teens which I LOVE & I wish someone would make movies out of THOSE), but (to me) "Deceived" seems to lose something by the end ...
Can't quite put my finger on it, although I must say that I enjoyed the movie A LOT more than I thought I would. (I THOUGHT it was going to be hopelessly hokey.) I do agree with the basic premise, though -- & that's why I mentioned the "Forbidden Doors" series ...
