Movie Info

One of the most famous real-life UFO abduction cases on record becomes this character-driven drama from sci-fi screenwriter Tracy Torme. D.B. Sweeney stars as Travis Walton, a forestry worker who disappears one night during an encounter with a flying saucer. Authorities treat with skepticism the outrageous story related by the only witnesses to the event, Travis' five co-workers, who include his best friend and future brother-in-law, Mike Rogers (Robert Patrick). A state lawman (James Garner)

An intriguing film made all the more noteworthy due to its nightmare-inducing sequence onboard an alien ship.

Lame-brain version of a classic UFO abduction.

Features one of the most harrowing sequences (maybe) ever. I get chills just thinking about it.

The X-Files could have done this story in 42 minutes flat, though in reality, it probably would have deemed it to boring to bother with at all.

Audience Reviews for Fire in the Sky

Allegedly based on true story, this one's fairly watchable.

Pretty slow for a while, but once the guy starts to recall his abduction, the awesome fx commence. Pretty twisted, I'm sad it didn't comprise the entire movie.
