Go Jump in a Lake
30 June 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"Under the depths of a lake located near a small town, lies a strange alien spacecraft that is unknown to the town's residents. An electronics expert picks up signals emitted by the spacecraft and begins to investigate the source of these mysterious transmissions. The electronics expert hopes to recruit a group of scientists to aid him in investigating the signals, hoping to discover the secrets contained within the alien ship," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

Young teaching fellow Nick Plakias (as Alan Grimes) has a startling change-of-life UFO experience. Extra sensory perceptive Cynthia Cline (as Vivian) unfortunately gets swept up in his investigation. "UFO Target Earth" plays like a stretched-out "Outer Limits" episode, with one-tenth of the old show's budget. But, in this case, there IS something wrong with your television set. Brooks Clift (as General Gallagher) appears in a brief, uninteresting role; he was Montgomery Clift's brother.
