Trailer for Found-Footage Horror Film THE RENDLESHAM UFO INCIDENT
I’ve got a trailer for a very interesting looking found footage horror movie for you to watch called The Rendlesham UFO Incident. The film was inspired by an actual UFO hotspot in England called Rendlesham Forset, which is basically the British equivalent of America’s Roswell.
The director of the film is Daniel Simpson, who is actually a long-time resident of Suffolk, which is where the forest is located. He's also described in a report by the Telegraph as "a Rendlesham Forest incident expert." Here’s the synopsis for the feature:
33 years after the infamous Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, three metal detector enthusiasts hunting for Saxon gold in the same region, capture incredible footage of UFO's whilst filming their expedition. As night falls and with their navigation equipment failing, they find themselves facing a terrifying encounter with an unforgiving alien presence.
The Telegraph also offers some information on the actual mysterious event that took place in the forest:
In the early hours of December 26, 1980, US military personnel (sections of the US Air Force were temporarily stationed at RAF bases in Woodbridge and Bentwaters) spotted strange lights above Rendlesham Forest.
One of these men, John Burroughs, accompanied by his supervisor and one other individual, went to investigate the blue, red, orange and white lights. In his subsequent witness statement, published in 1981, Burroughs explains: "As we went down the east-gate road and the road that leads into the forest, the lights were moving back and they appeared to stop in a bunch of trees ... Also, the woods lit up and you could hear the farm animals making a lot of noises, and there was a lot of movement in the woods. All three of us hit the ground and whatever it was started moving back towards the open field … We got up to a fence that separated the trees from the open field. You could see the lights down by a farmer's house. We climbed over the fence and started walking toward the red and blue lights and they just disappeared."
There have been several other incidents at the location since then, and I included a video of one of them below the trailer. It's definitely is a great setting for a film. I love this kind of stuff, so it’s definitely something I’ll be watching when it’s released.
