When the camera's battery is low, a "Low Batt" message flashes on screen. This would only be visible to whoever was recording and would not appear on the recorded video.
The version which aired on UPN was cut down to 44 minutes and includes additional fake interviews from UFO enthusiasts to make it seem more like a documentary than a found footage movie, though the actors were still listed in the credits. This cut places Tommy's testimonial at the end, after which he is entranced by an alien hiding in his room, then the film suddenly stops. This version is notable for its added musical score and sensationalist narration, a timer on the screen's bottom (that at times doesn't line up with the shown events) as well as some extra special effects.
