Fighting the Sky (2018)

I have night terrors. Every few evenings, I wake Becca up as I start screaming. Usually, the dream that causes this to happen is one where I’m looking at the sky and suddenly see a UFO which begins to follow me. I’ve had this dream since I was a kid, when Battlestar Galactica ended with that disclaimer about Project Blue Book. I was convinced from them on that I was about to be abducted.

Strange other-worldly sounds are being heard echoing all over the Earth, so a group of researchers, led by expert ufologist Lorraine Gardner (Angela Cole, White Boy Rick), start tracking down the sounds to their point of origin and come face to, well, whatever face an alien grey has.

There are two scenes in here that are going to totally fuel the night terrors I mentioned before. First, a scene where the main characters sit in the grass and stare at the sky as a UFO fades away, hoping that it doesn’t come back. And then there’s an Emergency Broadcast System alert of an Unidentified Flying Object landing and its inhabitants attacking people. It feels real.

Otherwise, there’s a lot of screaming and teenagers in peril, facing off against Adobe After Effects powered spaceships and rubber suited aliens. That’s not a bad thing. I had fun with this and if you enjoy abduction or alien tales, you probably will too.

Fighting the Sky beams up to digital and DVD on February 5.

NOTE: The movie’s PR team sent this our way, but that doesn’t have any impact on our review.
