Fire in the Sky

I just watched Fire in the Sky on Netflix. What does everyone on here think actually happened? If it wasn't an alien abduction, then where do you think Travis was for five days?

re: Fire in the Sky
This is a question that has always baffled me.

Didn't they all pass lie detectors?

Four of them did, the fifth one was apparently off the charts (unreadable).

The movie implies that the fifth didn't pass because of his changed feelings about the abductee. He then retakes it according to the movie and passes.

Per Wiki:
quote:

On Monday, November 10, all of Rogers' remaining crew took polygraph examinations administered by Cy Gilson, an Arizona Department of Public Safety employee. His questions asked if any of the men caused harm to Walton (or knew who had caused Walton harm), if they knew where Walton's body was buried, and if they told the truth about seeing a UFO. The men all denied harming Walton (or knowing who had harmed him), denied knowing where his body was, and insisted they had indeed seen a UFO.[7]
Excepting Dallis (who had not completed his exam, thus rendering it invalid), Gilson concluded that all the men were truthful, and the exam results were conclusive. Clark quotes from Gilson's official report: "These polygraph examinations prove that these five men did see some object they believed to be a UFO, and that Travis Walton was not injured or murdered by any of these men on that Wednesday". If the UFO was fake, Gilson thought, "five of these men had no prior knowledge of it".[7] (Clark, 633)
Following the polygraph tests, Sheriff Gillespie announced that he accepted the UFO story, saying "There's no doubt they're telling the truth." (Clark, 633)
In 2009, Walton was a participant on game show The Moment of Truth. When asked if he was abducted by a UFO in 1975, he responded, "Yes", an answer which the polygraph examiner determined to be deceptive prior to taping. Walton, in response to this outcome, said that polygraphs are 97% accurate, even in the best of cases.[8][9]

I happened to catch this movie on TV when I was but a child. I had nightmares for weeks.

re: Fire in the Sky
A decent movie with perhaps the most terrifying 10 minute sequence ever put to film. Saw it in the theaters and over half the crowd left during that scene and hung out in the lobby. My girlfriend was one of them and she came back in and said that me and some lady in the row ahead of me were literally hugging one another, both white as ghosts when she came back to her seat.

I don't deal well with movie screen long hypodermic needles being poked in people's eyeballs.

I don't think what was portrayed in the film actually happened, however I do believe that those men saw something that day, and what they saw, they all believed it was what they said it was.

re: Fire in the Sky
Huh

I didn't find it to be especially terrifying at all.

Nor did anyone leave or freak out when I saw it in the theater.

I actually remember being let down by the movie, and how short and lame the "probe" scene was.

However, I've come to appreciate the movie more over the years.

My friends and I snuck into Fire in the Sky after we watched one of the Ninja Turtle movies at the theater. Scared the shite out of me for a while.

Walton himself has said it didn't happen the way it did in the movie, and last I heard was trying to get another one made that would tell the real story

Ya, his story is much more tame.

Woke up with some "Greys" around him, jumped off "recliner" and grabbed a "glass jar" but it wouldn't break to form a knife. They leave. He walks out. Finds some kind of chair with a "planetarium" type room. Stops messing with that. Runs into a "humanoid" alien, meets some more, they only grin when he asks them questions. Then he sees an "oxygen mask" being put on him and boom

He is back on Earth and UFO is flying away. What he thought was a couple hours was five days.

This.

Another good freaky abduction movie is Communion with Christopher Walken.

Scared the crap outta me, particularly when he's in the ship and he floats or swings into one of those flesh-like chambers and practically falls into half of a decompsed human corpse
