This article recommends an underrated title, a must-see title, an unknown title, an ‘if you like, you will like’ title and an unexpected title so you have different options when it comes to choosing your next movie to watch.
When a group of friends experience a terrifying alien encounter in the woods, they return back home with one less than when they set out.
They try to tell people he was abducted by aliens, but of course, nobody is willing tolisten to their sensational story… that is until the friend appears a few days later with an unbelievable version of events!
You think that sounds scary? Well that whole thing is actually based on a true story! Good luck sleeping after this one!
Rooted in reality, this alien flick will keep you up for weeks.
One movie like ‘The Fourth Kind’ you have to see is the hugely entertaining ‘Dark Skies’.
The story is somewhat simple – a family start experiencing strange phenomena which may or may not be linked to aliens. It isn’t long before they find out those extra-terrestrial visitors have set their sights on their young son… and there’s nothing they can do to stop them.
Despite the straightforward premise, there’s a tonne of homage scenes and freaky moments to keep both sci-fi and horror nuts happy here.
A home invasion horror with sci-fi twist.
This is one of the few found-footage movies that managed to get under my skin and has never left. In fact, I still can’t look up at my bathroom window without imagining an alien crawling through and into my home.
The movie follows a family going about their Thanksgiving celebrations, who witness alien activity in the field by their home. Pretty soon, they find themselves on the wrong end of a terrifying alien encounter that sees the grey-skinned terrors target them for their next experiments.
Low budget thrills make for an excellent abduction movie.
Another found-footage movie for you to sink your teeth into now, this time in the form of 2014’s underrated ‘Alien Abduction’.
The movie follows a young autistic boy as he videos his family’s camping trip, only to capture terrifying alien activity in the process. When the bright lights start flashing and people go missing, you can bet no tent or sleeping bag is going to save these unfortunate souls!
Jump scares are abound in the found-footage thriller.
If you’re after a more optimistic alien movie, why not check out Steven Spielberg’s classic ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’.
Richard Dreyfuss stars as a man who, along with several others from his town, witnesses bizarre UFO activity amidst a series of abductions, and becomes obsessed with finding the beings responsible.
The events leave a lasting emotional impression on him, which sees him act in ways he’s never acted before. Whether he’s making giant sculptures of where the aliens are going to land next or pushing his loved ones away, his obsession will either make or break him.
With one of the most groundbreaking finales in cinema history, ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ is a movie that really needs to be seen to be believed.
An emotional, fun and wholly satisfying sci-fi extravaganza.
