The Alien Files
Release Date: 1/12/16

4 Out-Of-This-World Movies!

Night Skies
(2007) – Color – Rated R
Starring: Jason Connery, A.J. Cook. George Stults, Ashley Peldon
Demons at the Door director Roy Knyrim draws inspiration from one of the most high-profile UFO sightings ever recorded for this fact-based sci-fi thriller that recreates the infamous “Phoenix Lights” case. On March 13, 1997, community leaders, law enforcement officials, and countless everyday citizens in the southwestern United States witness a phenomenon that simply couldn’t be dismissed by even the most hardened of skeptics. Jason Connery, Ashley Peldon, A.J. Cook, and Gwendoline Yeo star in a film that draws on transcripts taken during hypnotherapy sessions to explore precisely what happened to six strangers stranded on a forgotten road during that fateful close encounter.

Alien Hunter
(2003) – Color – Rated R
Starring: James Spader, Janine Eser, John Lynch, Leslie Stefanson
For the NASA-funded research team stationed at the most desolate reaches of Antarctica, it’s another routine day – until the communications satellite picks up a mysterious signal coming from a strange object lodged several meters beneath the ice. Suspecting it may not be from earth, the lead scientist immediately places a call to Julian Rome (James Spader), an old friend formerly employed as a cryptologist for the U.S. Government’s SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program.

Catching the next flight to the South Pole, this former “Alien Hunter” is soon led to the unidentified object which is still encased in a large block of ice. After constructing a makeshift decoder, Rome quickly cracks the complex mathematical code, only to discover the message is an alien warning. Now it’s a terrifying race against time to prevent the total annihilation of the planet in this pulse-pounding sci-fi thriller.

John Carpenter’s Ghosts of Mars
(2001) – Color – Rated R
Starring: Ice Cube, Natasha Henstridge, Jason Statham, Clea DuVall and Pam Grier

Terror is the same on any planet.
From John Carpenter, the master of horror behind 1998’s hit John Carpenter’s Vampires and classics like The Thing and Halloween, comes a sci-fi thriller full of explosive action and bone-chilling suspense.

Natasha Henstridge (Species) is Melanie Ballard, a headstrong police lieutenant on Mars in the year 2025. Humans have been colonizing and mining on the red planet for some time, but when Ballard and her squad are sent to a remote region to apprehend the dangerous criminal James “Desolation” Williams, played by Ice Cube (Friday), they discover that he’s the least of their worries. The mining operations have unleashed a deadly army of Martian spirits who take over the bodies of humans and won’t stop until they destroy all invaders of their planet.

The Day The World Ended
(2001) – Color – Rated R
Starring: Nastassja Kinski, Randy Quaid, Bobby Edner, Harry Groener

The Day The World Ended is a creepy, suspenseful sci-fi thriller starring Randy Quaid (Independence Day, National Lampoon’s Vacation series) and the beautiful Nastassja Kinski (Town and Country, Terminal Velocity). It also features terrifying effects by legendary Academy Award®-winning monster-maker Stand Winston (A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Jurassic Park, Aliens).

A woman trying to help a disturbed child discovers his nightmarish fears are all too real in this sci-fi horror opus. Dr. Jennifer Stillman (Nastassja Kinski) is a child psychologist from New York City who takes a job working at an elementary school in a small Nevada community. Jennifer is seen as an unwelcome outsider by most of her neighbors and colleagues, but she does strike up a rapport with Ben (Bobby Edner), a troubled young student. Ben is haunted by fears he has a hard time talking about, and she learns that his mother died under unexplained circumstances — a matter his father (Randy Quaid) is equally reticent to discuss. As Jennifer struggles to get to the bottom of Ben’s traumas, she learns that a monster from another world and a terrible secret the town has been trying to hide are both parts of the puzzle. The Day the World Ended was loosely adapted from Roger Corman’s 1956 film of the same name, which was the first monster movie the B-movie icon made for American-International Pictures; this version was created as part of the made-for-cable “Creature Features” series.
