Our Score
This is a case from The X-Files that Scully and Mulder missed: a small-town lumberjack vanishes in the woods and his colleagues claim he was kidnapped by aliens. Problem is, the investigating officer here is sceptical James Garner and he suspects foul play. Director Robert Lieberman wisely concentrates on the emotional impact of the event on a close-knit circle of friends and family, although the eventual revelation of the abduction is genuinely scary. DB Sweeney shines in the lead role and there's good support from Terminator 2's Robert Patrick, The Last Seduction's Peter Berg and Henry Thomas of ET and Legends of the Fall fame, but old pro Garner effortlessly steals every scene in which he appears.

Summary

An American logger vanishes for five days and can't explain his disappearance until he begins to recall terrifying experiences aboard an alien spacecraft. Sci-fi drama, starring DB Sweeney, Robert Patrick, Craig Sheffer, Henry Thomas and James Garner.
