The Flying Saucer Fascination of the Fifties
11 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A pair of photographers for a magazine go to Mexico to investigate sightings of flying saucers. Also, it is rumored that some of the natives may have disappeared. When they get there, the local constable sets them up with a guide. He seems to know something he is not telling them. On there way, they witness two incredibly displays of lights in the sky, one is that classic old flying saucer video that has been seen as many times as Sasquatch running across a field. Eventually, they are startled by something in the bushes and fire a shot at it. When they look, it is gone. It is obviously alien. The cheapskates who made this film never give us a view of the thing, which the photographers later discover behind a rock, dead. In bringing the body back to the town something happens. The lights return. At least this is a rather well conceived encounter tale.

A sidebar. I've never seen so much smoking as I've seen in episodes of "Science FictionTheater." As a matter of fact, I think someone is smoking in ever story so far. Maybe they thought it had medicinal value.
