Xenophobia (2019)

A science fiction film written and directed by Joe Castro, Thomas J. Churchill, and Stevan J. Escobar.

Even Though the movie title gives away the meaning of dislike or hate against people from another country, the movie reveals the dislike and the huge hatred of aliens towards the people from the earth.

A group of six people who are complete strangers to one another, share their encounters with aliens in different stages of their lives and the abductions along with the tortures they had to undergo by speaking up about after being quiet on the issue for so long. These revealing flashbacks help these six people to heal themselves and to be assured that they are not alone in life as most of them were in thought that only they have been affected by aliens.

If you are into science fiction stories, you'd definitely be enjoying this movie.
