“The Fourth Kind is one of those horror mystery flicks that bills itself as a “fact-based thriller.” Set in Nome, Alaska, the movie seeks to explain the supposed mystery of an unusually high missing-persons rate in that area. The film says it re-enacts, documentary-style, actual footage of alien abductees. But the real mystery may be: How real is the movie? The Buzz Log investigates,” reports Claudine Zap.
“According to the movie, a scale developed back in 1972 was designed to measure alien encounters. (Remember “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”? That’s the scale) UFO sighting is the first kind. Evidence is the second kind. Contact with extra terrestrials is the third. And the fourth kind? You guessed it: abduction,” reports Zap.
“The teaser trailer, which opens with its star, Milla Jovovich, claiming that everything you’re about to see is true, has the Web buzzing – Searches on “the fourth kind” have surged 200% in the last seven days,” reports Zap.
“The story is set around psychiatrist Abagail Tyler, a supposedly real person who interviewed sleep-deprived patients claiming they were abducted by aliens – The movie promises that the scenes were all recreated from “archival footage” Except actual Nome residents say they’ve never heard of any alien abductions,” reports Zap.
