    The story of Carl Merryweather who believes he experienced an alien encounter at 10-years-old and is now trying to reconnect with the UFO as the same location.


Myrick's Skyman is a look into the UFO sighting community, via the perspective of a fictional person: Carl Merryweather. This Myrick's follow up with the genre of found footage (Blair Witch Project).

Yes, this film may get negative reviews since many want to see a straight-up horror film. And it doesn't help that it's a slow burn with Merryweather (helmed by Michael Selle) discusses his childhood "alien" experience: the Skyman.

Merryweather is played very good, tries to humanize his experience. It has great connections and scenes to the existing gatherings or conventions for those to discuss alien-abducted experiences.

If you are seeing this film for jumpscares, then see Blair Witch Project. This offers a different prospective, one follows the footage delving into Merryweather's life and obsession. It makes one think about Richard Drefuss's character from the Close Encounters of Third Kind.

It shows how Myrick did his research on families and real cases examining the prolonged frustration on alien abduction beliefs This is done very well the main characters, that is Merryweather's situation.
