THE PLOT:

When a man is touched by aliens while lost on a dark highway. It makes him obsessed with a certain mountain that he's never seen before. He's not the only thing, strange occurrences are happening all over the globe and the government is convinced that they are alien in origin. So, they arrange a meeting in a place called DEVIL'S TOWER and arrange the area to be empty with a fake NERVE GAS scare. But Roy and his new friend is out to find the truth.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Some say that this movie is based on a actually event and my brother vaguely remembers a nerve gas scare not too long before the movie came out. So I believe they based it on actual events. How many of them I cannot say with how the Government like keeping aliens away from us. Which is just BS. But back to the movie, for 1977 I think the effects were amazing, the story was amazing, the characters were well written. Everything is amazing. It's very long and drags in places, I know a good movie can never be too long, but this movie is kind of long for my taste. 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Long, that is a good word for it. Long, but it was worth the long wait until the final part. The effects in the third act was well worth all the waiting. The aliens are cool and based on the photos taken by the real girl. Just a great movie, not a perfect movie mind you, but great. 8 STARS
