StoryUFO Chronicles: Fascinating report on UFO phenomena, bolstered by credible witnesses, authors, and investigators. Especially noteworthy, and thorough, are the segments on Roswell, alien abductions, and genetic experiments. Eddie Page believes himself to be an alien-human hybrid. (For those who observe the amenities, the PC term is not "alien"; it's "celestial being.") Among other fun stuff are the Galactic Federation, a kind of UN of the universe, and the assertion that dolphins are from Sirius. The makers of these pieces wisely opted to let the documentary consist of interviews, letting the weight of anecdotal accounts make whatever case there is to make, when they might have easily erred on the side of conjecture. A worthy effort, well worth seeing, despite flaws in the quality of the discs. The sound is simply awful, and the visual quality is as fuzzy and unfocused as your average photographic evidence of flying saucers.
Ghost Stories: Not as successful as its companion piece, this one is all over the supernatural map. Although it purports to be about ghost stories, there are pieces on visions of the Virgin Mary, werewolves, Nostradamus, and the Kombucha Mushroom, of all things. While none of these reports are bad or uninteresting in and of themselves, you may be scratching your head wondering when they're going to get back to the ghost stories. Ditto in spades on the quality of the sound and visuals noted above. --Jim Gay
