Goofs

Ice starts pouring out of the fridge when the aliens cause things in the house to go haywire. The ice is not there a few minutes later. There is also no reference to anyone cleaning it up or slipping on its water later on (it would have melted on the kitchen floor within a few minutes). See more »

Wow! Absolutely brilliant!
30 July 2003 | by (Preston, England) – See all my reviews

This film is an absolutely brilliant idea executed to perfection. The actors are superbly convincing from beginning to end. I first saw it under the belief that it was supposed to be an actual incident - and this is how the film was intended to be seen. It was years later that I realised it was a film not an actual record of events. Perhaps it is because of this that I found the film so convincing, but it is well worth watching even though you have seen that it is not a record of an actual alien abduction. However, the impact of the film will be lost on you. This does not diminish the skill of the film at all and I congratulate all concerned on conceiving the film and in carrying it off so convincingly.
