On March 13th, 1997 one of the largest UFO sightings ever recorded took place across the southwestern United States. The event became known as the 'Phoenix Lights' and was witnessed by community leaders, members of law enforcement, as well as thousands of everyday citizens. This true story, based on transcripts from actual hypnosis-therapy sessions, finally reveals what happened after the infamous incident ended and how six people, stranded by chance on a forgotten road, encountered more than just lights in the sky.Written by

Cell phones were still somewhat uncommon in 1997 and the model used in the movie is much newer than what would have been available at that time. See more »
Senator, ah an attorney named Peter Gerston has filed suit in Arizona, uh, alleging that there's a cover-up regarding UFOs, and there has been for dozens of years, and millions of people have seen these objects in the sky, and the military continues to deny that anything's going on. Is that an area that's of interest to you at all?

At the time of this writing it has a 4 average rating. That's just ludicrous for a movie of such quality. I don't understand the complaints I've read about the acting in the least bit. It was all quite believable and I was actually surprised how well they managed in the strange premise of such slander-sensitive material. Instead of seeing the actors' awareness of being in a movie that's doomed from the start because of its subject matter, they have not shown this at all. What makes it extra tense is exactly the fact that the actors did such a fine job in making it possible to identify with them. I've seen a lot of thrillers based on this exact same theme, and this is BY FAR one of the best. Amazing last 15 minutes, splendid work on the visual effects. The low budget does not show.
Sure, it might have some predictable elements in it, but I wasn't bothered by them one second while watching it fly by. Simply very well executed script-writing, beautiful camera-work, full of good raw tension and really scary at times, even more so thanks to the unknown documentary-like doubts it will raise in the viewer's minds.
Very often bad or cheap audio gives away the mediocrity of such a movie, but not so here! Top notch quality and extremely fitting sound will help this movie gain cult-status. Hats off to the engineers and all those involved in scoring, arranging, editing and mixing for this film. For that I'm tempted to give it an 8, but I have voted 7 because in my opinion the movie should have been fifteen minutes longer, to show some more of the documented facts surrounding the true story for example.
