Yes, it's that time again! For the next two weeks, the New People Cinema will be teaming with horror, sci-fi, and indie film nerds, all excited to catch the programming of the 15th annual Another Hole in the Head Film Festival. As usual, it's an eclectic lineup with a lot of horror, but the screenings I'm especially excited for are more specific than that. And one of them is tonight...
Friday 30th @ 7pm (1hr 22min)
Mystery/ Sci-Fi/ Thriller (IMDB)
On March 13, 1997 thousands of people claimed to have simultaneously witnessed unexplainable lights in the Phoenix, Arizona night sky. What were the lights? To this day it remains a mystery and footage of the incidents has been used in documentaries on the subject of UFOs. The Phoenix Incident is a fictionalized heart-pounding thriller based on this real-life event. Written and directed by gaming talent director Keith Arem (Call of Duty, Titanfall) and starring Troy Baker (famed gaming actor) this one-night event uses whistleblower testimony, recovered military footage and eyewitness accounts to create a sci-fi thriller that examines the US military's alleged engagement of alien spacecrafts. In addition to being able to experience this exciting film, event attendees will be exposed to an exclusive 5-minute documentary about UFO sightings and government cover ups and a special panel discussion previously captured at this year's UFO congress.
We are currently congregating the found footage faithfuls and will be dispatching to see this momentarily. Next weekend, it will be followed up by a film we had the pleasure of scaring our audience with earlier this year...
Saturday 8th @ 9pm (1hr 11min)

As I said in my review, this is a total creeper. The less you know about it the better, but one thing I can confirm is that it's a found footage horror anthology. I waited months to watch it and I'm pretty excited to see it again. And this time, the an unidentified Overlook creature will be introducing the film. So you guys better come out!
