On the Trail of UFOs: Dark Sky, is a follow-up to 2020’s On the Trail of UFOs: Season 1 which is playing on Amazon. I have not seen the series but having seen this companion film I might actually try the series.
The film is an examination of the UFO phenomena specifically in West Virginia and the surrounding area. It’s a low key film where Seth Breedlove and Shannon LeGro interview the witnesses and let them talk.
I liked this film a great deal. I loved the low key nature of it all. I like that things aren’t sensationalized but stated matter of factly. As a result everything carries a weight more sensational documentaries don’t have. The film also scores in that the film goes out of the way to give us some sense of the are where the events happened. We get a sense of the history and of the people, which connects events to the world. We are not looking at something in a random place to some random people, rather we have a sense of things in context of the real world.
This is one the best of the recent UFO documentaries that have crossed my desk and it is highly recommended
