Aliens: Zone of Silence Review (2017)

 

Aliens: Zone of Silence is independent found footage horror about alien abduction.

The Story

The story is about a character named Morgan.  Four month ago, her brother and his friend mysteriously disappeared at Mexican desert known as Zone of Silence.  So she heads south to uncover the truth about their disappearance of her brother.  During the search, she is haunted by mysterious entity.

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 AndreasNoahThe Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian300 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.

In the Nutshell

    I liked this movie a lot. In my opinion it was very well done and it scared the shit out of me! I loved the ending and the part where she hears the message from back when the Voyager was sent up. Very well done indeed. I can’t wait to see more movies by Fowler:)

    Holy shit , there are so many grammar mistakes in This review, I honestly just couldn’t take it seriously. Was this originally in another language or is the writer not English? If so I apologize , I don’t mean to sound rude , but if you are going to write reviews and want to be taken serously , you have got to do some serious proof reading. I’m not the best speller and my punctuation isn’t always that great , but I also don’t write reviews for millions to see

    Holy fuck, Chelsea! For someone critiquing someone’s grammar, you sure do a shiit job of it yourself. You’re entire fkn sentence was a huge fkn run on sentence. The funny thing is, half of it was commas and there was a time after, “if so” where you couldve actually used that comma bt failed to. Get off your fkn high horse, cunt.

      Ahaaahahaha!!! You sir are my new best friend! I was thinking the EXACT same thing. I’m awful at all of that shit too but I would never be an ass like Ms. High Horse and actually try to tell someone else they are awful at it. I also love the part where she says she isn’t trying to be rude…Because we all know that is exactly what she was trying to do. People like her do that all the time. Cunt indeed good sir😂
