Our host Ken Klein tours the USA with us to uncover the mystery of the
so-called light orbs, a relatively small and insignificant sub-topic of
the paranormal at large. Light orbs are simply orb-like shapes that, it
seems, can be captured on camera but are invisible to the naked eye.
Apparently they are also able to throw holographic images ...
are many reasonable doubts that this orbs are anything other than
anomalies of the camera lense, natural lights of a frequency that can only
be translated into visible lights by a nightvision camera, helicopters,
natural shadowpay (in the case of the holographic images) and a wagonload
of other perfectly natural phenomena - and here's where the first big
problem of this "documentary" lies: Ken Klein doesn't try to
apply the scientific approach to the topic of his but instead bombards the
audience with so-called proof that in actuality does nothing to prove
anything. And it's especially significant to see in this movie that
everytime Klein claims to have anything really really relevant it was
taken by an extremely crappy camera, totally out of focus, and without the
use of a tripod (meaning shaky as hell), which would debunk his evidence
even if it was actual evidence - which is highly undoubtable considering
some of the footage Klein treats us to are clearly crane lights,
airplanes, and even a shaky pic of a paraglider is thrown into the
However, Klein doesn't seem like a total charlatan
but like someone who really really wants to believe, which is why he takes
us to the Arizona desert to analyze some rock carvings with a local
tourguide (Jeff Woolwine), who seems to have interesting ideas at least
... until the two of them move into conspiracy theory territory when they
remodel a mining operation into a cover-up plot by the gouvernment, which
kind of puts the seriousness of everything they have talked about so far
As for what these light orbs might be (if they
are anything at all, which the film as such fails to prove), Klein and
those he interviews have the wildest ideas, from UFOs to fallen angels,
aliens to interdimensional gateways, which again fails to convince someone
who is not a believer (as in, most people) to take the whole thing
seriously as a documentary.
Now all that said, this movie might
still serve as a valuable document of a so far rather overlooked field of
paranormal investigations - if not so much to prove there's anything there
but just to chronicle some ideas that are out there ...
