The Brown Mountain Lights are a very old phenomenon that, according to legend, stretch back to the days when Native Americans were the main population
in the area. As far back as the 1770's they were investigated by a German Engineer who was one of the first white explorers in the area.
There aren't a lot of reports about bad things happening around them that I'm aware of, though I'm not an expert on this topic. I have not heard of
it in association with aliens or abductions, either, so that one is new to me.
I would HIGHLY suspect the movie as being filled with a bunch of sensationalized and overly intensified fiction. It is actually considered a tourist
attraction! What IS true is that this phenomenon has been actively studied, scientifically, and no one has yet solved the mystery of The Brown
ETA: I stand corrected...
During the early 1900s, the mysterious lights were thought to be aliens, and Brown Mountain was even featured in an American pulp magazine, The
Argosy, telling people to go see the UFOs at Brown Mountain.
The lights have been reported as being white, red, yellow, orange and blue. They've been described looking like large balls of fire to small candle
lights and from floating near the ground to rising up high into the sky.
