Overview

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 finds a tabloid newspaper in the crew's pickup truck and quickly ascertains that tensions had arisen between Walton and a surly fellow logger Craig Sheffer, leading him to conclude that a murder cover-up is underway. However, all of the men pass lie detector tests and the case becomes stalled until the shocking last-minute reappearance of Travis, who tells a literally fantastic story involving his whereabouts for the past week.

    Great Film

    This is an interesting movie, based on a UFO encounter by an individual, whose story has held up, even under hypnosis, for more than twenty five years. The film is more like a detective story at first, looking for some explainable scenario or motive to account for Travis Walton's 'alleged' alien encounter; there is none. The last third of the film where he, played by DB Sweeney, recalls the actual abduction experience aboard the alien space ship, again under hypnosis, is nothing short of spectacular film-making. If this was all a fraud, the story (I have read the book, too) it would never have withstood the test of time over the years. Walton was a working guy, a power company linesman out in the southwest, and had absolutely no reason or discernable ulterior motive to concoct such a story. Several other witnesses (co-workers) also witnessed the abduction. The fact that this is all based on a supposedly true, and well documented, story for which there has been no satisfatory explanation, makes the film all the more interesting. I have been waiting for this film to come out in DVD format for awhile; it's about time.

    I give it five stars for two questionable reasons: 1) it scared my longtime friend. 2) it confirmed my suspicion that the inside of a flying saucer having the million-years-advanced technology to cross the gulf between the stars to do anal probes on humans would best appear on the trash TV show HOARDERS. What a dump of a UFO inside! It's like ET as a homeless waif living in a dumpster. And the Invaders go around sucking up redneck woodsmen with a Star Trek tractor beam to study and delete what little brains they had to begin with. This might have been one of the first Reality TV shows. It's not quite as hilarious as COMMUNION, with an alien peeking around a corner, but has its moments.
