Communion isn't the best film about alien abduction but it was one of the first to deal with the subject seriously. Under the pre tense of a true story Christopher Walken stars as a New York writer who retreats to his weekend cabin with family and has an alien encounter. Upon returning to the city he is at first seemingly normal but as the weeks progress he slips in to a crazed state and begins to recount what was done to him. Unable to distinguish reality from psychosis and putting his family in danger, he agrees to see a psychiatrist. Under hypnosis he reveals an invasive and traumatising abduction... Communion is a film that demands your attention and it's strength lies in its ambiguity, i.e. Alien abduction or psychotic episode? Walken is was an ideal choice of casting with is unhinged and manic style of acting giving the character believability. Directed by Aussie Ozploitation maestro, Phillipe Mora, Communion is the film that removed the fantasy from Alien films and paved the way for future titles like Fire In The Sky, The X Files and Taken. It's creepy too!
