Alien abduction. November 5, 1975. White Mountains, Northeastern Arizona. Based on the true story.
Did You Know?
There were actually a total of seven men in the logging crew. The writers whittled it down to six for the movie, not wishing to confuse the audience with too many characters. All seven men have passed lie detector tests, some of them twice. See more
When the logging crew is encountering the alien craft, the radio in their truck goes haywire. There's a shot of one of the crew trying to adjust the radio, depicting a Philco AM radio. The radio is appropriate to the vintage, but Philco radios were the "factory" radios for Ford vehicles, and the truck used in the story is a Dodge. See more
