Alien Contact: UFO Invaders
Alien craft allegedly crash in spots around the globe in this repetitive paranormal documentary.
With nearly 3 minutes of CGI UFOs gliding over scenery, Alien Contact: UFO Invaders doesn't start out especially promising. Thankfully, some of the UFOs crash, briefly livening things up. Unfortunately, the documentary manages to slide downhill after that. After outrageous, unsubstantiated claims of Nazis reverse-engineering spacecraft, vague accounts of UFO sightings with no concrete facts, footage of crowds of people pointing at offscreen events, and talk of news reports, but with no footage to back it up, the film meanders as rambling voiceover narration caused me to forget which particular sighting was which. I don't think it really matters that much. Vaguely similar CGI UFOs drifting from one scene to another certainly didn't help. An Ed Wood-like script and a Criswell-like narrator kept me intrigued in a Plan 6 From Outer Space fashion, but I was ultimately bored by this repetitive documentary.
