The Review (Spoiler Free)
Aliens: Zone of Silence marks the directorial debut of Andy Fowler who is previously known as a visual effects guy who is responsible for many great films such as San Andreas, Noah, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, 300 and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Zone of silence is a real place in Mexico. It is also called La Zona del Silencio. Zone of Silence is desert patch near the Bolsón de Mapimí in Durango, Mexico. It is the subject of an urban legend that claims it is an area where radio signals and any type of communications cannot be received. The movie plays with this urban legend.
This movie is about an alien abduction. Almost all the alien abduction movies end in same way. This movie is no different. But the movie isn’t about the ending. It is about Morgan’s journey to find the truth. What is unique about this movie is that the setup of the movie is bit like paranormal investigation type of situation where she is equipped with all the hi-tech camera gears, and she is with a friend who is watching and guiding over her via live stream video. She is set to document her journey much as she can.
Unfortunately, this movie is very similar to movie called Phoenix Forgotten. Phoenix Forgotten is also found footage horror which is also based on true event called “The Phoenix Light”. “The Phoenix Light” is the most famous and popular UFO Sighting in history. There are many similarities between Phoenix Forgotten and this movie.
Aliens: Zone of Silence isn’t very original and very predictable, but it is well done movie. Strong performance by the lead actress Sarah Hester. The pace of the movie is very good. There are no dull moments. Within few minutes into the movie, Morgan is already in the desert looking for her brother. Also during her investigation, we see flashback of what happened to her brother and his friend. The final climax of the movie is predictable but very intense.
If you are a fan of alien abduction horror and found footage film, this movie is for you. .I give 4 out of 5 stars.
