Welcome to the 11 best alien documentaries on Netflix instant in 2015 — cue the X-Files intro music.
Considering the vastness of the universe, it’s hard to imagine that we’re all alone in it, despite all the evidence (or lack of it, to be precise) to the contrary. Perhaps that’s why people from all over the world claim to have seen aliens or their ships. For them, the evidence is real and people who refuse to believe in them are either blind or a part of the government’s conspiracy to hide the truth.
Perhaps instead of wasting your time with aliens, you should educate yourself and watch some art documentaries on Netflix instead. Then again, perhaps these UFO documentaries do tell the truth. Perhaps the UFOs are really alien visitors from another planet. Perhaps they have valid reasons for not revealing their existence to the human race. Some of these alien documentaries try to explain those reasons. Others depict experiences people who claimed extraterrestrial contacts had. Whether you believe them or not is up to you, but the odds are in their favor.
