The Phoenix Incident

We may never know what really happened that 1997 evening when millions of Phoenix, Arizona, residents all reported a UFO flying over their city, but the new trailer for The Phoenix Incident makes it seem pretty damned scary!

From the Press Release:
Concourse Film Trade, a division of the newly minted entertainment group Concourse Media, has closed a multiplatform North American distribution deal with XLrator Media for the fact-based UFO conspiracy thriller THE PHOENIX INCIDENT, which will include an event-style theatrical release. Concourse Media partners Matthew Shreder and James Andrew Felts and XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon announced the deal today.

Blurring the lines of fiction and reality, THE PHOENIX INCIDENT is based on the largest UFO sighting in North American history, known as the Phoenix Lights, which occurred on March 13, 1997, in Phoenix, Arizona, where thousands of people, including then-state senator John McCain, claimed to have simultaneously witnessed unexplainable lights in the night sky. The fact-based sci-fi thriller revolves around a military conspiracy and the controversial missing persons case surrounding the infamous event.

The phenomenon hit close to home for director Keith Arem, an Arizona native, who wrote and directed the sci-fi thriller about four unsolved missing persons cases connected to the Phoenix phenomenon using whistleblower testimony, recovered military footage, and eyewitness accounts to explore the U.S. military’s alleged engagement of alien spacecrafts that night.

While THE PHOENIX INCIDENT marks his feature directorial debut, Arem has spent two decades in video games as the talent director for AAA franchise hits such as Call of Duty, Saints Row, Ghost Recon, Spider-Man, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Persona, Prince of Persia, and Rainbow Six.

“We are thrilled to partner with the dynamic team at XLrator Media,” said Shreder and Felts. “As the leading distributor for top independent genre content, XLrator is the perfect fit to launch this property.”

The cast features some of the gaming industry’s biggest stars, including Troy Baker (The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City)and Yuri Lowenthal (Prince of Persia, Sunset Overdrive, Dragon Age, Castlevania), as well as Jamie Tisdale (“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”).

Arem produced the film with Ash Sarohia and Adam Lawson for their PCB Entertainment banner. The release date has not yet been set.

The deal was negotiated by XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon with Concourse principals Matthew Shreder and Andrew Felts. Concourse is handling worldwide sales for the film.

Who Goes There Podcast: Ep 148 – Inside (2017 Remake)

Published

on

We’ve all heard the old saying, “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, I’m here to tell you that’s only partially true. It seems there is a third certainty that had been omitted from the original quote, “It is certain, if you enjoy a movie, at some point someone will remake that movie.” Now is the time when one of my favorite movies gets reimagined, “for an American audience”.

In the late 2000’s an explosion of “French extreme” horror films was released. Martyrs and or High Tension can often be found on any number of lists of the “most fucked up horror movies ever”. Unfortunately, the vastly superior Inside is often forgotten (as well as Frontier(s), but that’s a whole ‘nother rant). Now, ten years after it’s initial release, Inside has been Americanized. Don’t worry, we watched it so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.

Mommy says you’re not dead. Is that true? It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 148!

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.
