On the evening of November 5, 1975, a group of loggers saw a bright crimson light in a forest in White Mountains, Arizona. Curious, Travis Walton goes out for a closer look and is pushed to the ground by a blue-green energy beam. His co-workers escape in terror and they inform the police that Travis has been abducted by a flying saucer. For the next five days, Travis remains missing and the loggers endure ridicule and contempt as they are accused of murder. When he is found alive, Travis is unable to account the missing days, but the amazing ordeal slowly begins to emerge.
The film's alien abduction scenes bear no resemblance to Travis Walton's actual claims. Screenwriter Tracy Tormé reported that executives found Walton's account boring, and insisted on the changes. See more »
In the first restaurant scene, Bobby Cogdill is seen wearing a T-shirt with the cover of the "Rumours" album by the rock group Fleetwood Mac on it. The events of this movie take place in 1975. The "Rumours" album wasn't released until early 1977. See more »

After I watched this movie I took into perspective that aliens are freaking Scary. This movie probably has the best Alien abduction that I have ever seen.The aliens research on the man that got abducted was petrifying and the aliens themselves looked as scary as heck. I think this movie is Very underrated and should be seen by every true alien believer or anyone that is in for a good scare, besides after you see the movie i'm almost positive you will believe in them anyway. I think this movie is just as good as any alien movie i've ever seen and is sure as heck scarier.I definitely recommend this movie and if you like scary movies this is a must see.
