Real UFO buffs will love this movie.

On the surface, THE SILENCERS is a run-of-the-mill "aliens on Earth" movie, filled with action and yet has a lot of heart. Yes, it's low budget, and some of the special effects are cringe-worthy, but despite this, it is an interesting film, especially for those that know their UFO lore. The screenplay is packed with obscure references that are based in actual UFO case studies that are found in many, although little known published accounts. Most notably, the alien backstory is taken directly from the "Billy Meier" UFO contact notes that gained international attention back in the late '70s and other "true" UFO accounts from that era. Obviously the story was well-researched and is faithful to actual UFO case histories. For the casual viewer, the film holds your attention and is surprisingly enjoyable extraterrestrial romp, but for the hard-core UFO enthusiast, there is a lot to appreciate.
