    the truth is out there

    Apparently based on actual case studies, THE FOURTH KIND is set in Nome, Alaska, where citizens have been mysteriously vanishing since the 1960s. When young psychologist Dr Abigail Tyler (played by both MILLA JOVOVICH and CHARLOTTE MILCHARD) video tapes therapy sessions with deeply traumatised patients, she unwittingly discovers there is a terrifying connection between them. All tell of suddenly waking up at night to find an Owl at the window staring at them, then unknown figures entering the bedroom. Even under deep hypnosis the victims cannot describe these creatures, only that they are intent on terrible things . When one of her patients suffers a breakdown and subsequently murders his own family, Dr Tyler tangles with local policeman Sheriff August (WILL PATTON), a man who suspiciously believes she is a menace to everybody at Nome with her increasingly bizarre conspiracy theories. Are Aliens really abducting the local citizens and carrying out experimental research on them? Did Dr Tylers husband actually die as she claims, stabbed to death by an unknown intruder one night while he lay in bed next to her, despite the fact that she cannot describe the murderer? While I found THE FOURTH KIND quite suspenseful at times, it was certainly not as scary as I had expected. The use of so-called actual footage is nothing new, either, having been used to greater effect in previous films such as THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and CLOVERFIELD, but at least the cast performances are good. Picture and sound quality are adequate but we have to remember that the archive footage is meant to look sub-standard so the film does not always do justice to the Blu-Ray format. For a film of this type, potential for Special Features is very high yet the only bonus here is the Original Theatrical Trailer. The disc could have included so much more, such as documentaries on this controversial subject or at the very least a short Making Of, but it seems all the other features have been well and truly abducted by Aliens themselves!

    Not to talk down on the previous review, but the movie isnt real and the "actual film footage' is fake also. After the movie came out, the director of the movie admitted to making everything up about it being real! At first I thought, hey, its possible that the government did a cover up or something so not very many people would hear about this, but I did alot of research and it isnt real. Nome is a flat land and isnt near mountains. I wanted to believe that something was out there and thought I had some proof with watching this movie but nope, it sucks. The movie is good and you will feel yourself saying "What the heck" or "WTF" or Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......lol. It is a good movie and some of the "Actual Footage" aka fake footage will leave you with your mouth wide open. I would atleast rent on a night and cuddle up on the couch and enjoy!

    The Fourth Kind is a unique sci-fi / horror film about alien abduction in Nome, Alaska. Presented as a side-by-side comparison of 'actual file footage' and re-enactments, the movie creates suspense throughout and delivers a few chilling scenes that enhance the mystery. The balance between the lush cinematography and the eerie unease of the 'file videos' is noteworthy to the film's effectivity. I've seen reactions to this movie run hot or cold, but it's definitely a must see if alien abduction sci-fi is an interest! Recommended!

    Cool Movie

    This is a really cool movie. I saw it in the theaters and loved it. It has lots of jumpy parts in it. As you watch it it want to know what happens next. I like movies like this, very interesting and you learn stuff about the aliens and the ufo's in the movie. I like it, wish it was longer in length though. O well. Here is a link to the web site for the movie: http://www.thefourthkind.net/ If you can't click it just highlight and copy and paste into address bar.

    The Best Scary Movie Ever

    Posted

    Over the last few years, the term "scary movie" has been used to loosely describe something that is actually nothing more than a suspenseful build up to nothing. This movie is unlike anything that I have seen before. It will scare you to the core and make you feel paranoid. You will have to constantly remind your self that you are watching a movie. Since this is based on true events it is up to you to believe what you want to belive. This is a must see movie.

    A Very Scary U.F.O Movie

    Ok first of all this movie shooked me to the core. I watched it in the dark late at night(prefer the viewer to watch in the dark) and I couldn't sleep. But I can see this movie isn't for everyone. They present the movie in acting form and actual footage of what happened. Milla Jovovich acting was great in the movie.

    This movie really scared me, but in a good way.

    This movie really scared me!!! Imagine people that can sneak in your house without a sound, kidnap and have their way with you without you remembering, paralyze or kill you when you are about to remember, and steal your loved ones by beaming them up through roofs!!! Salem's Lot has nothing on this movie.
