Do Hollywood Movies Influence UFO Sightings? “Theory Talk” Vol. 4

Do Hollywood Movies Influence UFO Sightings? “Theory Talk” Vol. 4

Be sure you’re all caught up with this series! “Theory Talk”


I’ve got a lot to say about Hollywood. And I mean a LOT, but we’re not going to be talking about Hollywood as a whole. Instead, we’re going to talk about a theory that might actually explain a lot of UFO sightings. The theory is that around the time that Hollywood movies that deal with UFOs or aliens are released, the number of UFO reports/sightings goes up. A prime example is back in 1996 when the popular Will Smith movie ‘Independence Day’ was released. In 1995, only 117 UFO sightings were reported. But in 1996, the number spiked to 609 UFO sightings. Some believe that when people go to see these movies, they suddenly become more attentive to the skies which means more people see more UFOs. But others seem to think that these movies cause a sort of hysteria which then makes people think that almost every aircraft they see is a UFO. So that’s the theory, here’s where I stand. I think that this is true, here’s why. Movies have to power to influence people greatly. If you remember, when the original ‘War of the Worlds’ came out on the radio, people quickly freaked out because they thought it was real. And to a point, that still happens to this day. After watching a scary movie, you’ll probably find yourself being more wary of the dark for the next few days. Same thing with UFOs. People start to wonder if the UFOs they saw in the movie could be real and they look to the sky to see if they can catch a glimpse of a UFO. But those are just my thoughts, now it’s time for you to decide where you stand. Do you think that big Hollywood movies such as ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind’ influence the number of UFO reports/sightings or do the two have no correlation at all?
