Happily married couple Bob and Dez Wilson and their 12-year old son Andy are being attacked by a blinding light when driving home from a daytrip. They awaken a couple of hours later, seemingly unscathed but soon driven mad by recurring nightmares. It soon appears that they have been abducted by aliens as proved by their sons handycam that had suddenly started running right after the incident. This mysterious fact is discovered by even more mysterious Men In Black who start nagging the family up to the point of threatening to kill them.

Andrew McCarthy was originally the lead (and was listed as such in the Hollywood Reporter American Film Market special issue for 1995). Andrew McCarthy eventually made "Perfect Assassins" for the same production company (Promark). See more »
When Bob pays for the gas he is told it is $17. Bob hands the attendant a $20 bill and gets only two $1 bills back and not three. See more »
Overall, I was impressed by a number of things. Good casting, pretty good writing, some fine acting from Fenn, Roberts and Stockwell. The lead MIB was well done indeed! Really captures the heart of MIB lore - these folks really did their research (a rarity with these kinds of films, as you know). It's just too bad that this kind of film doesent deserve a larger budget. I give it a solid B!
