I must admit that I had my doubts when I sat down to watch the 2019 movie "Xenophobia" from directors Joe Castro, Thomas J. Churchill and Steven J. Escobar. Why? Well, because I was about to embark on a sci-fi anthology with alien abductions. While the movie's cover/poster does seem interesting, it just doesn't really have that convincing touch to it, given the synopsis of the movie. But still, I sat down to watch it, as I believe in giving each movie a chance. "Xenophobia" wasn't exactly a masterpiece in movie history, nor was it really as bad as I had initially expected it could turn out to be. The movie and the different segments were definitely watchable, but not likely a movie that you will be watching more than once. The segments were of very various quality and contents, I will say that much. Of course you need to watch them yourselves to pick which one you like the best. As for the special effects, well let's just say that "Xenophobia" was coming off as being a very ambitious low budget project with the filmmakers having their hearts and intentions in the right place. I actually think the special effects worked out well enough for the movie. Sure, they were not overly great and even had be breaking out in chuckles from time to time, but it just added that low budget and classic sci-fi feel to the movie. All in all, your life is not going to be incomplete if you miss out on watching "Xenophobia". But if you have an unhealthy interest in sci-fi, alien abductions, and what not, then you might actually find something enjoyable in this 2019 alien abduction anthology.
Six complete strangers recall the details of their individual experiences with alien forces-sharing the terrifying stories of their abductions and possessions.
