I'm looking for a movie dating from the 70's or the 80's where a guy is initially in his garden, with his dog.

He is in his yellow pyjamas.

There is a beam of light that appears in the garden. He enters the beam of light and is beamed-up to somewhere alien. There are several people like him and then all of sudden, he takes off of his human skin to reveal he is an alien.

As you can imagine I was young and the story freaked me out.

    Per A movie with a guy who is beamed into a ray of light in his garden, this is most likely Strange Invaders (1983). I wouldn't really have anything to add to that answer, hence the comment. If you confirm this is it, we can close as duplicate of this other, accepted ID question about the movie. Note that on SFF, dupe-closure on story-ID is mainly to have a "master" ID, an inner working to keep things organised. It doesn't mean your question was bad, quite the contrary in this case :)

  • Hi @Jenayah, ty for your comment. Alas, this is not Strange Invaders. I watched the whole movie. The tone of strange invaders is light, almost of hopeful. The movie I'm talking about was scary.

    Alright, the hunt continues then. Though I guess something that looks light now, as an adult, might still have been scary as a child (the skin removal picture). But I haven't seen the movie so I can't really talk :)
