Yet another reason why M. Night Shyamalan is full of it.
According to recently declassified Russian documents, most encounters with alien craft happen near oceans and lakes. This reported by the Svobodnaya Pressa news website.
“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,” he said.
On one occasion a nuclear submarine, which was on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean, detected six unknown objects. After the crew failed to leave behind their pursuers by maneuvering, the captain ordered to surface. The objects followed suit, took to the air, and flew away.
In the 2000 Shyamalan film Signs, an alien invasion is thwarted by a Pennsylvania farm family who realizes the creature’s only weakness is exposure to water. We await further research to test other M. Night theories including the deadliness of temperamental trees and how to react if you find Bryce Dallas Howard in your pool.
