1. Fire in the Sky (1993)

For anyone who is interested in UFOs, then the name Travis Walton isn’t unfamiliar. Walton is one of the most famous abductees in the world. In 1975, while working on a reservation in Arizona, he was taken by a blinding white light in the sky and not seen for 5 days.

His friends that witnessed the event were unsure of what had actually transpired. Unfortunately, they became suspects in what everyone in their town thought of as a potential murder. Each one underwent a polygraph test to prove their integrity.

However, their results were deemed inconclusive. While they became pariahs in the area where they grew up and had lived their entire lives, once Walton was “returned,” things never went back to normal. Most everyone thought it was a hoax.

The scenes where Travis is on board the alien craft are unsettling. D.B. Sweeney is giving the performance of his career as the unwilling and absolutely terrified abductee. While watching him being subjected to experimental procedures, it will make you squirm.

Imagine being in his position, not knowing where you are and then you are literally tossed onto an examination table, stripped and then held down by a skin like covering. I shiver just thinking about it.

If you like Ancient Aliens and have read Erich von Daniken’s book, Chariots of the Gods?  then by all means, this is a must see. The caliber of the script is top-notch and not to mention the superb performances from not only Sweeney but Robert Patrick and James Garner are worth mentioning.
