Storyline

Five film students are producing a documentary about the local zoo when suddenly the animals go berserk: The reason is a light ball flying by in the sky and crashing at the horizon. Convinced that they've just witnessed a meteor landing the students follow the trajectory to document the event with their camera. In a forest area they discover a burned crater. Since it's too dark to film they decide to spend the night in their van. The next morning one of them is missing. The remaining students find first a trail of blood and then the torn up pieces of what used to be their friend. Soon they realize that something is hunting them - something that's not from this world.

Fun alien movie
20 December 2016 | by AlexandraG16See all my reviews

When you go to see a German horror flic, your expectations are pretty low. It seems that movies coming out of Germany are for the most part comedies (that don't necessarily translate too well) or drama with a deeper message.

UFO certainly doesn't reinvent anything, it leans rather heavily on the classics of the genre such as The Blair Witch Project or Alien - nonetheless I was positively surprised.

The actors did a good job making their panicked reactions believable and there's quite a few things to panic about in the course of events: This is not a found footage film that leaves everything to the viewers imagination - instead, there's a good amount of gore here and the creature effects are rather convincing.

Cheaply produced, no doubt - but there's some fun to be had especially for fans of found footage movies.
