Based on the shocking, true events of March 13, 1997, when a strange pattern of lights appeared over Phoenix, Arizona, PHOENIX FORGOTTEN tells the story of three teens who went into the desert after the incident, hoping to document this mysterious phenomenon. They were never seen or heard from again. But now, two decades later, their footage has been found...and the truth will finally be revealed.

Found-footage horror/sci-fi movie has some scares, blood.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Phoenix Forgotten is a found-footage horror/sci-fi movie about UFOs and (possible) aliens. Based on a real-life sighting from 1997, it's cleverly and satisfyingly put together. It's also frightening: Viewers can expect scary noises, lights, and screaming. But while bloody coyote corpses and bloody noses are shown, other violence is imagined or takes place off screen. Language includes several uses of "s--t," plus "bitch," "d--k," "dumbass," "hell," and a few other words. A teen boy is said to have a crush on a teen girl, and there's brief, joking sex talk in one scene. The three teens drink a six-pack of canned beer.
