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.
The footage claiming to be from 1997 was shot on modern digital cameras in HD. To simulate the look of lo-fi analog footage, after the special effects were added in, the footage was copied to actual VHS tapes which were then re-digitized to finish editing. The analog defects are therefore real and not simulated. This had the added benefit of making the computer effects look more integrated with the original footage. See more »
Billboards advertising the three teens missing show a number with the 480 area code in it. The film takes place in 1997, but 480 area code was not created until 1999. See more »
This was, hands down, the worst "movie" I have ever seen. I was actually car sick before the end of it. The effect that the constant motion of the hand held camera created made me nauseated and gave me a slight headache, as though I had just stepped off an amusement park ride. Sure, it lent authenticity to the project ( i cant call it a true film), but enough is enough! That was overdone. That being said, I still could not suspend disbelief. It was what it was- a few high school kids out on a lark. Period. If it were based on a true story, it found the wrong arena to present it's case. It should've stayed on the billboard shown in the project. A movie theater was no place for this haphazard attempt at finding the missing kids. This was a waste of time we can't get back, not to mention not being worth the cost of admission.
