Alien Invasion Arizona is a science fiction movie. It is an alien film set in the fictional town of Salena, Arizona. It is also entitled "The Salena Incident" and was a straight to DVD release produced by Temple Hill Entertainment and distributed by Lionsgate.
After a mysterious, extraterrestrial object crashes in the mining town of Salena, Arizona, the government dispatches a team of Marines to contain the possible threat. Meanwhile, a group of death row inmates ambush their prison bus and take the guards hostage. The criminals include Brando, from the Italian Mafia, Colburn, an African-American gangster, Alano, a Hispanic gang member, and a Neo-Nazi skinhead named Albany. Arriving in the seemingly deserted town, they come across Special Ops Captain Bradley, the sole survivor of a horrible carnage that decimated the rest of his unit. With time running out, the group puts their differences and racial prejudices aside to combat the threat of the savage aliens hunting them in the mining tunnels below and the peril above from a squad of fighter planes sent to bomb the town to oblivion.
While the film is set in fictional Salena, Arizona, many of the scenes are actually filmed in real life Superior, Arizona. Shots of the town and surrounding area are seen throughout the film.
The film depicts a prison in Salena, but the real life town of Superior does not have a prison. The building used in the film for the prison is actually an old school.
