Valerie has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. After the diagnosis, she is driving with her sister Melissa on a country road when the car stops and is engulfed in a blinding light. 12 hours later Val wakes up and Melissa is nowhere to be found. Months later and all sign of Valerie’s cancer is gone, but still no sign of her sister. Carter (Luke Goss), Valerie’s cop boyfriend, wants to help her but their relationship means he is pulled from the case.


Could it be an alien abduction? Valerie’s dreams and visions suggest it could be. Searching the web she finds a book about blackouts called Lost Time and meets author Dr Reed (Robert Davi), who claims to have the answers she is looking for…

“Once act three turns a corner into plot twists seemingly designed for speeding towards a resolution, and away from making sense, Lost Time is already buried under a mismanaged formula for making a risk-free film.  […] Lost Time tries too hard to be a conventional sci-fi thriller and not hard enough to speak in its own unique voice.” 40 out of 100, Culture Crypt


“The movie was way too slow and at some points outright confusing. The movie did have huge potential but deteriorated as the storyline progressed. The scenes were all too predictable. The actors did an okay job but not good/excellent.” 4 out of 10, Hell Horror
