Hey, movie fans. If you're looking for something a little offbeat, I point you in the direction of the indie found-footage sci-fi/thriller/comedy Unidentified, about a trip to Vegas gone inexplicably very very very wrong.
Written and directed by Jason R. Miller, and starring Parry Shen, Colton Dunn, Eddie Mui and Eric Attell, the movie mixes science fiction, suspense and laughs to create a unique, crazy take on an otherworldly encounter. Our friends Parry and Eddie also put in double duty as producers on the project.
The movie is now available on DVD, Video On Demand and Digital Download -- iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, XBox, YouTube, Google Play -- pretty much wherever and however you prefer to watch.

Here's a little more about the story:
During a wild weekend in Las Vegas, four young friends get into trouble with a loan shark and must skip town in a hurry. But gambling debts may be the least of their worries after they get stranded in the vast Nevada desert. One of the guys discovers a mysterious metal fragment and then promptly goes missing during the night. When the remaining three catch up with their lost friend, they notice something oddly different about him. As his condition worsens, the others realize that some unearthly being may be stalking them in the wilderness.Now check out this really cool behind-the-scenes clip that shows how they launched a GoPro camera into space to film one of the out-of-this-world sequences in Unidentified:
