‘Based on the true phenomenon
Mount Adams is a 2021 American science fiction horror film about a team of UFO investigators who find themselves hunted by alien monsters.

Directed by Phillip Wade from a screenplay co-written with Tim Wade, who also co-stars, and Just B. Jordan based on Tim Wade’s storyline.

The Ambition Pictures-Gold Trail Productions-New Dawn Films co-production also stars Emily Sweet, Matthew O’Donnell, Phillip Wade, Allesondra Helwig and Alysse Fozmark.


“Anyone familiar with the wilderness area should get a kick out of seeing how the film uses the mountain, and the high aerial shots of the roads highlight the dramatic scenery. Had more dialog been devoted to the scientific research questions and discussion about the alien presence on the mountain, I think Mount Adams would have been a more cohesive film.” Columbia Community Connection

“Much of the cast has limited to no experience and it shows at times with some very stiffly delivered dialogue […] We do get to see quite a bit of the three lizard creatures. They look to be CGI, but the filmmakers wisely make them mostly nocturnal so the dark can hide most of their flaws […] as a simple monster movie, it makes a fun diversion.” Voices from the Balcony
