Overview

This documentary argues that the "Philadelphia Experiment" - a legendary and mysterious WWII occurrence that witnessed the disappearance of a massive naval vessel during extreme magnetization - presaged bizarre and otherworldly events. It states that, as in the John Carpenter-produced science fiction thriller based on the same tale, The U.S.S. Eldridge instantaneously disappeared from 1944 and landed in 1984, 40 years in the future. When the vessel then reappeared in 1944, observers were perplexed and terrified to see the bodies of the crew members embedded in the hull and deck of the ship. In this program, conspiracy theorists and unexplained phenomena experts Duncan Cameron, Al Bielek and Preston Nichols discuss the said experiment and argue that it only marked the beginning to a series of covert government actions including time travel, invisibility and psychic phenomena. The interviewees also state that courtesy of the time travel experiments, the U.S. government knew about 9/11 years before it happened.

You should probably check out the 1984 theatrical film, The Philadelphia Experiment, before seeing this documentary, to get an idea of the story. Basically, the Philadelphia Experiment is to time-travel what Roswell is to UFOs. And this film makes the intriguing claim that the Hollywood movie was actually produced to discredit the eyewitnesses, to put the real incident in a fictional light. Designed by the military to move across time/space boundaries, the Philadelphia Experiment was purportedly augmented by The Phoenix Projects, which tested bombarding people's brains with radar waves to achieve mind-control. This all smells like paranoia, and it's hard to believe the US government can keep a secret for half a century, but watching a group of seemingly sane men discuss this in an ordinary living room one night is a little chilling. There's a ton of raw material (3 and a half hours) to think about here, including an eyewitness account of traveling through hyperspace from 1943 to 1983 and back again. If this subject is of interest, this video's a must-see.

I have to admit that I love conspiracy theories, UFOs, the paranormal, and anything else that causes me to stretch my imagination. The Truth About The Philadelphia Experiment is one such film. The first part starts with a narration and slide show, explaining what the Philadelphia Experiment was, about invisibility, time travel, and the lengthy interview that's about to follow. This helps to set the stage for the astounding information the viewer is about to hear, and from the witnesses' own mouths The video was filmed back in 1989 by a camcorder, so it feels as if you found someone's secret homemade video and get to see firsthand accounts of people who had experienced time-travel and other phenomena. For die-hard fans of conspiracy theories, you'll enjoy this film. Even viewers who are used to crisp and perfect Hollywood films will find The Truth About The Philadelphia Experiment intriguing. Why? Because it's so very real. Nothing at all is scripted. It's gritty and honest, which gives one the impression that this time travel stuff just might be true. Years ago I watched John Carpenter's version on this subject and found it fascinating though unbelievable. The US Navy made an entire vessel invisible? After watching this film my stance has changed. Along with the subject of time travel, which the people in the film claim to have experienced, but they also believe they've been victims of mind control and having their memories erased. These are subjects we usually associate with alien encounters, but not our own human race inflicting on us! Whether true or not, the film is definitely thought provoking. After watching it, you can decide whether these men are simply weaving some fantastic stories or relaying cold, hard facts.

I am usually not remotely interested in speculation and conspiracy theories but this documentary managed to capture and hold my attention. I actually saw the movie version of "The Philadelphia Experiment" first, which is what initially peaked my curiosity about this documentary. Whether or not they were believable, the people interviewed were at least entertaining. I think most of these theories are probably founded more firmly on paranoia rather than actual events but all in all this was an intriguing documentary. Anyone who finds conspiracy theories thrilling or at least curious will surely enjoy watching this.

Invisibility, remote viewing, time travel - was the United States military involved in practical research and actual demonstrations of these theoretical capabilities during World War II? This film goes into great detail about the Navy's magnetic de-gaussing project whose ostensible aim was to make a ship de-magnetized against mines and invisible to radar, but whose real objective was actual physical invisibility of a warship. The project dove-tailed with the Montauk project which was using volunteer personnel to experiment with psychic research into remove viewing and time travel and with the Phoenix time travel project forty years later to the day, according to 1989 interviews with actual participants in these experiments. It's worth wading through much dry interview footage to gather some very convincing testimony about time travel and age regression experiments conducted during a forty-year period as the Rainbow project morphed into the Phoenix project with the original 1942 Philiadelphia Experiment as the starting point.
