Movie Info

Based on an allegedly true account, this film follows the events that befall the inhabitants of a small town when Mike Rogers (Robert Patrick) reports that his buddy Travis Walton (D.B. Sweeney) has been abducted by aliens. The local sheriff suspects that Mike was involved in Travis' disappearance, but when Travis returns with a tale that supports the abduction story, the friends suffer the ridicule and disbelief of the town members and the media.

This might do for a television report on humans who have enjoyed, or hated, close encounters of the third kind. But for a movie, especially an only fleetingly artful one, it seems unduly coy.

One of those the truth is stranger than fiction stories.

Achieves a very good balance between horror, drama, and mystery.

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.

Sep 2, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

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

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.

Unbelievable! This is based on a true story, most of the film is banal in the extreme, only coming to life in the terrifying sequence where I find out what really happened to a logger claims to have been kidnapped by a flying saucer. Believe it or not!
