Altered is a Straight-to-DVD 2006 Sci-Fi horror movie. Altered is directed by Eduardo Sánchez who achieved some fame from directing the box office hit The Blair Witch Project.
is the story of four men who seek revenge on aliens that abducted them and murdered their friend many years ago. The plot pretext (gradually explained via character dialogue throughout the film) is of five fifteen-year-old friends living in a remote American town that were captured and experimented on approximately fifteen years ago whilst on a hunting trip - only four of which returned alive. The main character (character name Wyatt) has since distanced himself from his childhood friends and is shown to have decided to live with the past, albeit in apparent constant paranoia. Two of the remaining three characters however have been obsessed by revenge and have persuaded the remaining, somewhat leadable, character that this is the correct course of action to take. The story opens with the tracking and subsequent capture of a lone alien - the consequences of which Wyatt and the three friends soon become deeply involved in.
