Storyline

One of many 1970s UFO documentaries, this one features lots of still photos of alleged UFOs, some UFO motion picture footage, and the usual stock footage and images acquired from government and military sources. Among the many people interviewed are UFO researchers Stanton Friedman and Ted Phillips, UFO abductees Betty Hill and Travis Walton, optical physicist Bruce Maccabee, and retired U.S. military officers Jesse Marcel and Wendelle Stevens. The documentary supports the view that alien visitors regularly come to Earth and have perhaps done so for centuries. Written by JHC3

Creepy
29 March 2004 | by gobruenSee all my reviews

This movie scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. I remember watching it alone on TV and not being able to sleep afterward. It seems like a silly, campy movie now but it is still entertaining. The grainy documentary style makes it even creepier. That alien-autopsy video has nothing on this. Another good one is "Sasquatch, the Legend of Bigfoot", along with the old "In Search of..." episodes. Many of these movies that used "real" events were much scarier than scripted horror movies. Not scary, but a good creepy 70's documentary is "F is for Fake" by Orson Welles. I think Oliver Stone borrowed heavily from these styles to make JFK. These tapes may be hard to find at your video store.
