A Surprise Hit!
Verified purchase
Well, I do like a good UFO movie and this one was a good find. The first half was a bit dull in parts and my eyes did droop a bit here and there, but the second half had me gripped. The acting was great and the insertion of documentary footage was very well done I thought. I'm tempted to give this a re-watch and pay more attention to the first half next time. If you like UFO's and found footage movies, give this a go, you might find it the surprise hit I did.

What a brilliant film! I just love true stories, even more so when they are about possible space ships. There are so many sightings in this film witnessed by hundreds off people. They all can't be wrong, can they....
A great film in my eyes. I'll be looking at the sky more often now.

Well worth the watch. Enjoy.

Slow burn

This was a clever idea. Maybe it's been done a lot of times but I don't watch that many movies and I thought it was effective. Showing the effects of the teens' disappearance on their families made the film emotionally engaging. The slow build up cranked up the tension and I found the ending quite frightening and horrible. Definitely worth a watch.

I thought it was a documentary (a real found footage!)

Never watch a movie without knowing if it is a movie or a documentary!
As dumb as it may sound, I thought it was a real found footage documentary and just started watching without knowing anything about it! It scared the hell out of me!
I feel so dumb!
I love the movie and yeah if you want to be really scared, assume its real lol

Mixed Reviews can be summed up thusly...

...if you do not enjoy found footage movies do not watch, however, if you are like me and enjoy them, go nuts! It's not a bad one, just not in the same calibre of say a Paranormal Activity. So a 4 star review could be because I enjoy the scooby-doo ones more than the alien ones. It's put together well, and the story carries, so it is worth a review, could be slightly upped in pace perhaps.

I started watching first because the reviews, but after 20 min watching it, it was soooooooo boring and ridiculous filmed that I thought why people gave it 5 stars? Please don't waste your time as I did with those 20 minutes. 😏

A Great Watch

If you like UFO documentaries, this is right up your street. Considering it's based on true events , the lights in the sky over Phoenix (which I remember seeing on the news),its a bit unnerving. I enjoyed it.
