Fire in the Sky (1993)

Paramount Pictures
Directed by Robert Lieberman
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Paramount)

Good 'ole boys in Arizona have an alien encounter while logging in a forest. One of them is left behind when he leaves their pickup truck and goes missing for 5 days. James Garner is called in to investigate and becomes increasingly skeptical of their story. Town gossip turns against them as well and there are accusations of murder. However, the missing man turns up one rainy night and tells a horrifying story of his abduction. In the best scene of the movie, we see a flashback to his imprisonment and forced examination at the hands of the aliens. More of those type of scenes and less of James Garner in Rockford Files mode would have made for a better film. Supposedly based on a "true story".
