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.
User Reviews: I am believer of extra terrestrials but even I had to believe in this movie with a pinch of salt. There are parts in this movie which would make you jump out of your seat and the rest of the time, you are glued on to the screen. What do I say about Milla Jonovich? She has absolutely NAILED the performance. One might say she is equally good in this movie as she was in ‘Faces In The Crowd’. Getting back to the movie, it makes you wonder, makes you wanna believe and makes them debunkers wanna laugh at it. With me, it made me wanna look stuff up online. I wish I could say what but that might qualify my review as a spoiler. Regardless of whether this movie was based on true events or not, its an absolute thriller and definitely qualifies as a ‘must watch’, especially for those who like Thriller and Sci-Fi genres of movies. I would have given this movie a 10 but the reason I didn’t is something you would understand when you see it.
