Plot: In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. When a UFO is sighted, it is called an encounter of the first kind. When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind. When contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is the third kind. The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind. Modern-day, Alaska, where-mysteriously since the 1960s-a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year. Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered. Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented. The Fourth Kind exposes the terrified revelations of multiple witnesses. Their accounts of being visited by alien figures all share disturbingly identical details, the validity of which is investigated throughout the film. Runtime: 98 mins Release Date: 05 Nov 2009
I couldn't wait to see this movie after seeing the previews, and I wasn't let down. Both my wife and I actually talked about this movie for hours after-wards and that hasn't happened for a long time! I have since read people talking about how "fake" it is, and maybe so, but it still works either way! I prefer to believe it's real, and that makes it that much creepier! Isn't that what horror/Thriller movies are for? I really loved this movie, and i have to say that it's the best "scary" movie I've seen since the Exorcist!!I am going to do some <more>
research to see if I can actually find any information on these events. if I can't, that's fine because the movie did it's job!
This movie was genius.I went in to this movie not understanding what I was signing up for. I knew it was "based on true events" but I mean come one. We all know what that means in the movie world. "Based on true events" horror films usually end up being less scary than completely made up because you sit there and you're like...that's dumb. They so obviously made 90% of that up. I mean they have potential, but most of them fail. Epically.But...this movie was different. The opening was fabulous, having Milla Jovovich walk on screen and say "I'm actress Milla <more>
Jovovich and I will be portraying Dr. Abigail Tyler...*background info*...What you are about to see is extremely disturbing." This is, by the way, the understatement of the year . It set up the premise of the film brilliantly. I think that if the film had been purely recreated footage it would have fallen down the same slippery slope to failure that so many before it has. But by mixing in interviews by the director with the real Abigail Tyler and actual or fake actual...really it doesn't matter. The impact is the same video and audio recordings the film makers scored big time. The recreations were creepy. The actual videos the placed next to and over top of the recreation? Those were deeply disturbing and downright terrifying. Someone earlier complained about the split screen and 'merry go round' shots, but I thought they were fabulous. I don't know, something about seeing several angles of things and seeing the real footage next to the recreated footage just made what was happening hit so much harder. And the sound!! The sound made this film. Using the real audio recordings, even when the only thing on the screen was reenactment, was just...inspired. Those sounds! I can't get them out of my head. There are just...no words.I also just have to say that I loved the fact that they did not show the aliens. It made it infinitely more effective. In fact I think seeing aliens would have ruined the film. But not showing the aliens went back to the days of Hitchcock who showed us that the man with the ax is infinitely less terrifying than the idea of the man with the ax. This movie was very refreshing in a world where ridiculous amounts of gore and so one rule the horror scene. Gore and cheep scares can entertain us for a while but eventually just end up insulting our intelligence. But The Fourth Kind hits hard and is extremely disturbing, right to the core. Thank you film makers, for acknowledging our intelligence as viewers.Honestly, I'd recommend this film to anyone who's looking for a truly terrifying horror film. But be warned. It's not for the faint of heart. But in all seriousness, the film was remarkably well done. Everyone in the theater sat for a good 5 minutes during the credits before we could speak or move. I adored this film, even if it looks like it is going to be leaving me without sleep for a while. Go. See it. Now.
Be warned: The Fourth Kind will keep you on the edge of your seat (by soulinflight)
I saw a screening of The Fourth Kind with a couple of buddies of mine, and wow this movie was truly powerful and thought-provoking. I was captivated by Milla Jovovich's strong performance along with the rest of the cast. Also, if you're looking for a disturbing movie... then this movie is for you. The real recordings combined with the recreated movie footage was so well executed that it will make you cringe and keep you on the edge of your seat.Definitely got to give major props to the writer and the director. The Fourth Kind exceeded my expectations and truly sparked my fascination <more>
toward alien abduction and encounter theories. Now, I'm left asking many questions and still trying to decipher / figure it all out... This movie earns two thumbs up in my book.
This movie was a total surprise, in a good way. The trailer wasn't particularly amazing, but it did get me excited for the movie. Still though, I came out shocked at how good the movie actually was.First of all, the so-called archival footage and audio that is supposedly real, is fake...or so I think. You can't really trust Hollywood these days when they release a movie "based on true events". I'm not one to fall for the marketing hype, so I went into the movie with this in the back of my mind. It had no effect on my overall opinion of the movie.The movie was filled with <more>
a great story in my opinion, had tons of suspense and had its fair share of disturbing and freaky moments. I wouldn't be surprised if some small percentage of all the abduction phenomenon reports are in fact real. In the case of the movie though, I highly doubt it was real. Still though, movies are meant for entertainment and this movie certainly accomplished this. It was also refreshing to see the movie give a bit of insight into the Ancient Astronaut Theory. It's finally getting some mainstream light shed on it.I have no doubt in my mind that extraterrestrial life exists throughout the cosmos, you have to be a truly ignorant and close-minded person to believe that we are alone in this vast, infinite universe. What a waste of space it would be. All in all, great movie, you won't be disappointed. Go watch it, it will make you question your beliefs.
I'll admit that I'm a bit of a ufo buff and have always been a fan of movies like "fire in the sky" and "communion". I had high hopes for this movie since i first saw the trailer and am really glad i got a chance to see it opening weekend. this movie met and even exceeded what i had been hoping for. it is chilling, thought provoking and suspenseful. plus it tells the story in a completely unique way that - at least for me - was extremely effective. i thought the use of archival footage and reenactments was pretty amazing and it left me wondering the whole time how <more>
much could possibly be real. while i believe that alien abduction has and does occur, i also realize that filmmakers do what they need to do to tell a story. for me, that space of wonder is part of the fun. overall i though the performances were very good and am happy to see mila stretch a little bit as an actress. i still think she's capable of even more but i thought this was a smart choice for her that she pulled off successfully. i think a lot of people are going to be talking about this movie.
The main plot was that this movie is based on true events. Also that the FBI tried to cover it up. Well. As soon as the movie came out all of the sudden there was an investigation. Why?? Is for every movie that is based on "true" events a investigation? Well maybe the idea was to prove that its fake. No documents were found? No people ever existed? Bla bla bla? Well if anyone watched Xfiles. How did it always end? Well whenever they found something... it got covered up by FBI and there was never enough evidence. This seems like the same happened for this movie. No EVIDENCE. WHy? <more>
BEcause then if it was based on TRUE events then people would actually think about it. But as soon as it was announced as "FAKE" or SCi-Fi it meant another Xfiles movie. But actually the scenes were from real film and real studies of patients. FBI is covering it up again. Just like in XFILES.
Why do so many people feel like a movie has to be a life changing event? This movie is a great way to spend 1 1/2 hours. The acting is very good. The "real" vs acting element is well done. Milla does a wonderful job drawing in the audience. The story is fun & the concept is entertaining.Some movies are done just to provide entertainment. Nothing more, nothing less. This is one of those films.Go with a good attitude and enjoy. There are no life lessons to learn. There is no great revelation. Just go for fun.Enjoy!
Intense and Scary (by correoesti)
I watched this movie with some friends and we started commenting some of the first scenes until the shock came and made us shut up.Trying to remember good scary Sci Fi UFO movies I can't find too much, maybe because its a difficult matter to build as a movie, a lot of attempts ended with cheesy non-credible movies but this isn't the case.The movie has a lot of good tense moments with good acting but kind of start to fail with some ideas in the middle of the story, there are some flaws that make it less credible but still scary.There are some details like the photography and direction <more>
that are great and paired with the cast and good story makes the film an enjoyable scary ride.
Even with hypnosis, it's black Â… The Fourth Kind (by jaredmobarak)
I don't care if The Fourth Kind utilizes real footage or not, it's a very powerful film. All the marketing materials allude to the fact that filmmaker Olatunde Osunsanmi interviewed psychologist Abigail Tyler and, by using actual footage of her hypnotizing patients and herself, recreated scenes to give the audience the full story of what is happening in Nome, Alaska. The technique is very effectiveâ€”excising names, showing the actors' names and who they are playing, mostly changed to withhold identities anyways , showing the "real" Tyler in split-screen with Milla <more>
Jovovich's representation of her, etc, etc. I will admit to doing as little heavy digging as possible, going into my screening with the absolute belief that it was true. Do yourself a favor and do exactly that if you want to take a gander. It may play like an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" but boy does it pack a punch. You will be doing yourself a disservice by debunking it all first, if in fact it is debunkable, which I think unfortunately now that it is . Go in blind and be riveted, frightened, and made into a believer.You have to give Osunsanmi credit on orchestrating all of this. The detail put in is quite astonishing. His subject is a woman that witnessed the death of her husband Will Tyler, one that when in a trance appears to be a murder, stabbed to death while she watched. Hoping to finish his work in what is causing multiple disappearances in Nome, Abigail goes back to her job and discovers many residents of their sleepy little town have been experiencing the same late night traumas. Waking up around 3:00 am, they appear to confront a snow owl. But this is not an owl they see through their window every night, it is looking them in the eye from above their bed; it's in the room staring at them, making them feel uneasy. Only when they are put under hypnosis to recall the suppressed thoughts do they realize the owl was never there, it was just a manifestation to hide what truly occurred. Whether you believe in extraterrestrials or alien abductions is superfluous, the events shown will resonate and knock the wind out of you. The tears are real, the fear incalculable; these people have seen their worst nightmare and once you see that, what choice do you have but trying your best to never see it again? But it isn't just a document of the events; it is also reenactments of footage we are seeing as well as moments not caught on camera to fill in the spaces. Again, it can be looked upon as a bigger budgeted television special made to excite and question. You can't question the talent involved, though, with a cornucopia of journeyman talent. I think Jovovich acquits herself quite nicely and really delves into the psyche of a broken woman with Abigail, one who's world is dissolving around her as her mental state gets called into question. However, it is in the casting of Elias Koteas as her colleague and friend; Will Patton as Sheriff August, a man in need of hard evidence and truth; and Hakeem Kae-Kazim as a Sumerian translator who believes the doctor when no one else will, that excels.Like the TV shows, though, the acting pales in comparison with actual archival footage depicting the real events. Whether or not it is fact or fiction, you cannot discount the effectiveness of these clips. If they are real, my God are they harrowing to view Â… I'm still thinking about them even now, my eyes tearing in the pent-up anxiety they cause. If they are faked, these uncredited actors are pretty fantastic. The mix of amateurism and true feeling is too real to ignore. If they aren't real people on film they need to get some more parts in Hollywood because they blow their "professional" counterparts out of the water. Abigail Tyler is a force to reckon with in expression and sorrow and hope that answers will soon come. Her life is an exercise in futility as her actions are inconsequential motions against an immense, yet invisible force. When the creature/demon/whatever inhabits the body of a patient and tells her that prayer isn't necessary, he is already here and Abigail Tyler should end her study, I felt the confused fear in the pit of my stomach just as she must have been feeling it.And how about "Scott" and "Tom" in their discoveries of their abductions. Between the murder/suicide and the demonic possession/levitation, the distorted footage is jarring. When Jovovich, as herself, explains at the start that some imagery may be disturbing, she was not kidding. Enter this film at your own risk. I don't know if going in under the assumption it is fake will cause the illusion to dissolve completely, making the "real" footage appear staged and horribly shot or not; what I do know is that if you go in believing, you will be punched in the gut a few times. Even though the camera goes on the fritz when an otherworldly manifestation appearsâ€”whether in Sumerian tongue or UFO spacecraftâ€”what is deciphered through the skipping and fuzz is horrifying. Mouths opened wider than humanly possibly; deep, raspy voices of "God"; audible door creaks and the screams that follow, this stuff stays with you my friends. It may recall films like Blair Witch Project or the new sensation Paranormal Activity, but it's handled differently and as a result affected me more. By acknowledging that half the film is "fake" and only showing the "real" stuff when necessary or relevant, the truth factor becomes more believable. Call me gullible, call me stubborn, call me whatever you want; I say believe it all and let the story speak for itself. Whether it all comes out as a hoax or not, I cannot deny the physical reaction I had to it and that in itself makes it a success.
