Trivia

During production of the movie, the film makers were contacted by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding one of the film's viral websites. Due to the perceived authenticity of the site, the DOJ threatened imprisonment and substantial federal fines, believing the website infringed on the department's likeness to locate the missing men from the film. After several tense days of legal negotiation between the production's attorneys and the Justice Department, the site was reinstated and continues to serve the motion picture. See more »

Phoenix incidents
26 March 2016 | by milagros-98666See all my reviews

I can't believe the way this movie went. It started pretty good and then he ruin by bringing Hollywood into it. It would have been better as a documentary and letting the audience decide for themselves. This was a waste of my time and a put down to what happen in 1997. It just made laughing stock to the people that actually saw it. I would suggest you spend sometimes in Estrella Mountains so you can see for yourself what is going on there.

For someone that said in the interview you believe in UFO, you did nothing for this movie. Next time try to stay on the story and don't let your Hollywood side make a true story into a joke
