Ridley Scott is one name that the horror community recognizes instantly. Although he’s known for making films with a sci-fi slant, Scott has always had a knack for incorporating terrifying atmospheres and outrageous antagonists. The man behind Alien, Blade Runner and The Martian is now teaming up with Cinelou Films and director Justin Barber (Leaving Baghdad 2003) to bring us a whole new extraordinary extraterrestrial story called Phoenix Forgotten. Check out the trailer below!

The synopsis for Phoenix Forgotten:

Based on the shocking, true events of March 13th, 1997, when several mysterious lights appeared over Phoenix, Arizona. This unprecedented and inexplicable phenomenon became known as “The Phoenix Lights” and remains the most famous and widely viewed UFO sighting in history.

Phoenix Forgotten tells the story of three teens who went into the desert shortly after the incident, hoping to document the strange events occurring in their town. They disappeared that night, and were never seen again. Now, on the twentieth anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition. For the first time ever, the truth will be revealed…

S. Nowlin, as well as newcomer Samantha Thomas. Nowlin also wrote the film’s screenplay while Hell Hole: Dark Harvest (2016)’s Mondo Boys composed the score.
