hi, my name

is Morgan Taylor.

About four months ago,

my brother hal

and his best friend Alex,

they went missing

in the Mexican desert


Nobody knows

where they went,

why they went there,

or how they knew

about this place.

They just never

came home one day.

I've been trying

to research the area

to see if I can

figure it out.

All I can come up with was

"zona del silencio".

Things go missing there.

Planes, rockets,

radio signal.

Apparently people, too.

And the authorities,

they just joke that

they were irresponsible

tourists doing god knows

what in the desert.

[Morgan sniffles]


he was my best friend.

So I'm determined

to find them.

I need to know what happened.

-[Wind howling]


We're good?

Okay, I'm rolling.


hey, look!

Look, I found a spot.

Hey, check this out, look.

You heard about

"the hills have eyes"?

Well, this place has

f***ing ears, too, man.


really, really?

Could you keep it clean?

All right, this is just

for you two. It's an intro.

That's it.

Nothing more, okay?

-Yeah, you wanna be part of it?

-I didn't know we were shooting.

That's fine, all right,

we can do this.

Real quickly, okay?

Goose, you ready?

Goose? okay, yes.

All right.

Hi, I'm hal. This is...

Hi, I'm Alex.

And we are the alien hunters.

Sound stupid to you?

Well, not to the aliens,

it doesn't.

That was terrible.


All right, all right,

fine, leave.

I'll do it.


Hi, I'm--

you are dead!

No! You are dead!

[Hal snoring]

As you can hear

from the carbon monoxide

explosion going on over here,

and the lack

of visual connectivity,

rain man over here...

Is trying to figure out

a math problem

with something I call

intellectual subconscious


Yes, and clearly,

using this process,

anything is possible.

And it looks like

he's gonna be at this

for a long time.


As for me, I think I found

a website that's pretty cool

and that actually could be

the point of our next



Zona del silencio.

It's located right here

in the mapim reservation

in Mexico.

Right there, where otherworldly

stuff happens--

ufos, that type of thing.

But it is actually

located on the same axis

as the Bermuda triangle.

But my very,

very favorite part is

is that has a biosphere

that's a visitors' center.

[Hal] f***!

F***, it was

on the tip of my tongue.

What's up?

Dude, do you have it?

Like where'd it go, man?

Uh, your scrap piece of paper

with a scribble written

down on it?

-Yeah, it needs to be

in the in position...

-In position.

...or the whole

thing doesn't work.


-bring it over here.

Here you go.

What are you guys doing?

You're shooting a porno?

Uh, no, actually we're

getting some work done.

We're shooting

"zona del silencio."

-"Zone of silence."

-"Zone of silence."

-Yeah, you know it?

-Yeah, f***, yeah.

They have a biosphere.

I've been trying to tell

you about it all day.

You tell 'em about

the mutated animals

or the fact that it gobbles up

radio and TV signals

or planes go missing,

or that ufo activity abounds?

Well, we were getting there.



What else you been doing?

Well, you know,

i been doing work.


what have I been doing?

What have you been doing?

You been doing nothing.

I've been doing research.

This is not research.

It takes a lot out of you,

I'll tell you what.

I'm gonna have to take

a nap after this.


-here, shut up,

look here, look here.

Come here, look at this.

It says here,

"the zone of silence

gobbles up radio

and TV signals.

And in the 19th century,"

which, I don't know,

that's like decades ago,

"farmers reported seeing

hot pebbles fall from the sky."

Ooh, I like hot pebbles.

Those are kind of cool.

F***ing find

some of those, huh?

Okay, oh, look,

check this out.

So, "travelers

going through the zone

report seeing strange

f***ing lights

and burning bushes."

Burning bushes? That's, like,

f***ing biblical, man.

Dude, and check this.

Shut up, shut up,

check this out.

"Two ranchers on their way

back from festivities

reported seeing a glowing light

come down from the sky

and spitting out glowy

humanoid creatures."


-well, that sounds

a little weird.

Maybe even a little...

Okay, scary, maybe, yeah.

Yeah, I don't know

about that last bit.

It's a bit, like...


What are you doing?

Please, someone help us.

We've been stuck out here

in the zone for--

we shouldn't have done this.

This was a little too much.

-This was a horrible idea.

-We are so hungry and thirsty.

If anyone gets this tape,

it's hal and Alex.

-We need help.

-Please send help.

We need food

and water right now.

So badly.

We're gonna get it right now,

as a matter of fact.

-We just need provisions.

-Just kidding.


Pork and beans, my friends.

This is all you need

for a camping trip.

Hey, hal.

Couldn't remember

what size you wear.

[Fake laughs]

-Get the water.

-You're a cruiser, right?


-all right,

I'm getting the water.

See what I have

to deal with?


-Water, water, water.

-Can you just put it together

and let's go?

My leg is killing me.

[Hal] it's right here.

It's right-- it's right here.

That's not water.

You know, I heard,

like, in the 1970s

that a missile got knocked

off course
