Cool Campy Retro Sci Fi Film that intrigues the viewer
16 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alien Encounter is my new fav for Sci Fi films and bound to be a cult favorite. I enjoyed it's retro 90's vibe and the fact it premise was based on the infamous Phoenix Lights that happened in the 90's. Overall the acting was good and story intrigued. Courtney Gains known Star from the popular film Children of the Corn gave a good performance and so did the smoking hot blond Actress Yvette Rachelle. She made the film. I watched it over again just to see this drop dead gorgeous and cool Actress again. Also I did enjoy the special effects ,campy feel and wild music. Overall it is definitely worth seeing. I saw this at Cannes Film Festival and look forward to buying the DVD soon
