I have no expectations for alien abduction thrillers these days, especially from indie studios. The plot is almost always the same, and the events playing out in a suitably predictable fashion. But I’ve got reasonably high hopes for Christian Sesma’s soon-to-be-released thriller Lost Time, though perhaps it’s because it looks like a solid episode of The X-Files. (Which is already far more exciting than I Want to Believe.)
The film recently released a trailer, seen above, and it culls together some genre heavies to tackle this mystery with otherworldly consequences. Rochelle Vallese, who co-wrote the film with Sesma and Kenneth Owens, stars as Valerie Dreyfuss, who receives terrible news from a doctor’s visit before watching her sister Melissa (Jenni Blong) get taken away by an alien craft. Sounds like as shitty a day as I’ve ever experienced. Except she doesn’t even remember what happened, so she probably just thinks her sister was taken by human beings.
