A batch of new motion posters have landed for The Phoenix Incident; a docudrama that tells the story of the infamous Phoenix Lights UFO sightings in America. Also known as the ‘Lights Over Phoenix’, the sighting took place in Arizona and Mexico in 1997. It was the largest UFO sighting in North America with thousands of people confirming they saw a triangular formation of lights the size of several football fields, and a series of stationary lights in the sky.
The motion posters are reminiscent of previous marketing campaigns from films like the Blair Witch Project. They are aiming to create an air of mystery and intrigue as they hint at Operation Snowbird, Heaven’s Gate and show missing posters of people who may have been abducted. Obviously, you’ll have to check out the film to get the answers to these mysteries.
Blurring the line between fiction and reality, the fact based, sci-fi thriller revolves around a military conspiracy and the controversial missing person’s case surrounding the infamous 1997 event. With the support of the victims’ families, along with classified military documentation, cockpit recordings, Air Force pilot interviews, actual FLIR footage, and first-hand recovered video evidence, The Phoenix Incident exposes the military’s engagement with extraterrestrial contact, and the collateral damage of 4 civilians.
We’re always intrigued to see what extra-terrestrial horror film will come our way next and The Phoenix Incident’s decision to blend fictional drama with real life evidence sounds mighty appealing. We all love a conspiracy theory, so it will be interesting to see what conclusions the film draws about the real Phoenix incident.
The Phoenix Incident comes from first-time director Keith Arem and will premiere in the USA this month. Check out the intense trailer below.
