The drive to embark on a courageous journey to find answers to a perplexing mystery is a powerful characteristic that often runs in families. That compelling initiative is certainly present in the sibling protagonists of the new horror film, ‘Aliens: Zone of Silence,’ which is being released On Demand and on DVD and Blu-ray worldwide today by Gravitas Ventures. In honor of the home distribution, Shockya is premiering an exclusive clip from the drama, which is titled ‘Desert Encounter.’
The clip features the thriller’s main stars, Peter Gesswein and Sarah Hester, who play siblings who are investigating the mysteries of the Mexican desert known as La Zona del Silencio. ‘Aliens: Zone of Silence’ also stars Jed Maheu and Vince Tula.
‘Aliens: Zone of Silence’ follows Morgan (Hester) as she goes on a daring search for answers after her brother, Hal (Gesswein), vanishes from the Mexican desert. But when she discovers an extraterrestrial presence, she must risk her life to expose the desert’s otherworldly secret.
Morgan’s search for her brother comes after the U.S. military launched a test missile, which contained radioactive elements, from Green River, Utah toward White Sands Missile Range in 1970. But they lost control of the missile, and it fell in the Mapimí Desert region. Ever since, there have been rumors of magnetic anomalies that prevent radio transmissions, local plant and wildlife mutations, and extraterrestrial activity.
