Synopsis by Mark Deming
A teenager who cried wolf now has to warn his neighbors that ill-tempered aliens are on the way in this sci-fi adventure. Zach (Jason James Richter) is a high school student who, in hopes of impressing the other kids, fakes some video footage of a UFO landing which is aired on local television. However, Zach's prank is soon revealed to be just that, and he finds himself an outcast among his peers. When Zach begins seeing evidence of real UFO activity -- strange lights in the sky, school busses disappearing and materializing again -- no one is willing to believe him, except Kara (Melissa Galianos), who is also on the outs at her school. With the help of an eccentric comic book artist and a patient at a nearby mental institution, Zach and Kara try to save their town from an oncoming alien invasion. Mark Hamill also makes a brief appearance.
