Follow The Phoenix Tapes ’97 (2016) In 1997, four campers went missing during the Phoenix Lights incident and their bodies were never found. The Phoenix Tapes 97 is comprised of their final footage. This film is dedicated to the lives lost during the events displayed. To their families and friends and to the authorities who continue to search for answers. The tapes were found by Dustin Miller's father two years after Dustin was mysteriously shot and killed at a traffic stop in Texas. Peter Miller believes his son was acting as a whistleblower and had smuggled the tapes from his classified government agency in an effort to expose the truth as to what really happened to the four missing campers seen in the tapes. After searching every newspaper and media publication around Phoenix during that time period, we only found one initial announcement that four campers were reported missing, as well as a formal police report folder with local PD but the folder had no files inside. 7.5 Average User Rating 39 votes Rate This Item Your Rating: 0 Submit User Reviews (0) Write A Review Release Year:2016Genre:Alien, Alien Abduction, Alien Invasion, Alien/UFO, Horror, Phoenix Lights, Sci-Fi, UFOPlot Setting:DesertCamera Type:CamcorderFilming Reason:Capture Proof, Document EventCamera Mode:Daytime, Night VisionCast:Peter MillerCountry:CanadaLanguage:EnglishBudget:TBDRuntime:67 minRegion:North AmericaFilm Type:FeatureFilm Title:Phoenix Tapes '97 (2016) Deborah McIntyre It’s not real. How do I know this? Amazon Prime has a documentary called, “The Blackwell Ghost.” The maker of that documentary is in this film. How can someone have gone missing in 1997 and do a ghost documentary in 2016? lol Jesse Williamson It’s not a documentary… Deborah McIntyre Either way, as I said, the maker of, “The Blackwell Ghost” is in “The Phoenix Tapes.” Blackwell was made in 2016. One of the missing dudes in The Phoenix tapes made The Blackwell Ghost. No one is missing because it didn’t happen. It’s all fiction Jesse Williamson No shit. The fact that you are stating and trying to prove it is fiction is what baffles me. FoundFootageCritic I believe the first comment was nothing more than a friendly a bit of sarcasm poking fun at the perceived authenticity of the film. The actor being in both films is actually a good catch. 🙂 Chyanne Shirley if this is real, how come they don’t give us the names of the missing men? how can anyone help find them if we don’t even know who they are and where they lived? bogus bullshit Also, the scenery in the ad is from far northern Arizona (Monument Valley) NOT anywhere near Phoenix!!! get it right you guys. . . FoundFootageCritic This is a micro-budget found footage film. The filmmakers did a decent job for what they set out to achieve. On a limited budget, often many compromises have to be made. Chyanne Shirley how come no names of the missing? we can excuse using stock photos for the ads, but can’t locate victims without ID’s. . . Annie Mous It is not supposed to be real, you fucking moron. kharaa …..welcome to found footage movies.. >_>; FoundFootageCritic Yes indeed!
