"The Fourth Kind" is the worst kind

Here’s a post about the validity of the film’s “documentary footage” and true story claim. Review below.

Milla Jovovich, bathed in white light, steps into the foreground. As the camera circles her and abruptly changes angles, the actress delivers a spiel about the film’s production, its authenticity, our freedom to draw our own conclusions, and then wraps things up with the caveat that “some of what [we]‘re about to see is disturbing.”

If you start things off with a proclamation like that, you’d better have the goods to back it up.

Set in a small town in northern Alaska in October 2000, the movie purports to use real video and audio from various interviews conducted by Dr. Abbey Tyler with several of her patients who were experiencing alien encounters in conjunction with dramatizations of those interviews and events. With that premise, one would think having convincing documentary footage would be the logical place to start. One would be wrong.

Right off the bat, “The Fourth Kind” can’t get its act together. The footage that kicks off the actual feature is of Dr. Tyler being interviewed by the film’s director, Olatunde Osunsanmi, and it’s so awkward and obviously scripted that the immediate effect is incredulity.

This persists throughout the entire film. None of the footage is convincing and the insinuation that it’s authentic becomes insulting. It doesn’t do itself any favors when it goes into split screen, either, showing the dramatized action alongside its allegedly real counterpart, often revealing the former to be more startling.

With that crippling problem set aside, Jovovich, playing Dr. Tyler, turns in a surprisingly decent performance. She’s convincing as a woman grieving the death of her husband while juggling motherhood and her duties as a psychologist.

Elias Koteas is good, too, as her visiting colleague who champions hard evidence, the scientific method and…yet…denies the validity of his own extraterrestrial encounter later on in the film.

And Hakeem Kae-Kazim as Dr. Awolowa Odusami (said to be an alias), a scholar of ancient languages, provided the film’s one sincere moment of intrigue and disturbance when he discussed the relationship between aliens and ancient Sumeria.

But then we have Will Patton as Sheriff August (another alias) who brings things to a screeching halt with his self-aware, arbitrarily hostile and unreasonable antics which make no sense and do further damage to the credibility the film so desperately needs.

He acts the way only a character in a bad movie would: ignoring evidence, making hasty, irrational decisions that negatively affect just about everyone, withholding basic information about Tyler’s husband’s death without purpose. Did Osunsanmi honestly think we wouldn’t find his character insufferable?

If for nothing else, the film fails by not living up to its own hefty proclamation. It isn’t scary in the slightest. The interviews seem fake and so much of the action borrows from “The Exorcist” and other possession films that it’s laughable. The scares that do occur are simply surprises and couldn’t haunt you if they wanted to.

I have a friend who’s never watched “E.T.” all the way through because he’s terrified of aliens. Just the other day, he was whining to me about being bullied into seeing “Signs” in theaters and how it nearly ruined his life. This wouldn’t faze him.

You bring up some valid points, but I am going to completely disagree with your review as a whole. Especially with your silly closing line.

Josh, have you seen it yet? I couldn’t tell 100% from your comment. If so, what do you disagree with and why?

I just saw the movie. The story regardless of the validity is very scary so your statement “It isn’t scary in the slightest” just proves your are a poor critic or at worst a hack. Your are definitely a non-scientist assuming the re-life footage is accurate. It simply shows the raw footage. I will do my own research to prove/disprove to my self regarding the validity of the “authentic” film footage. The validity on the surface appeared very compelling. In your case again you provide no specific examples of evidence that the original footage was faked in the most important areas.

How an individual that has never heard of the Sumatran language would speak it is impossible to explain within normal bounds.

How an individual who is clearly ill can levitate above a bed is impossible to explain within normal bounds.

How all of these individuals had the same common experiences and psychosis with similar loss of memory is impossible to explain within normal bounds.

As others have said I also suspect you did not see the same movie I did.

did you (John) even follow the link in the opening sentence above the review? Here’s one explanation for the speaking in tongues and levitating: its a movie and the footage was faked for it. Are we supposed to take this as gospel just because a hollywood films says its real? The link actually says that many of the “real” characters may have never actually existed, masked thinly in the film by use of an alias and that alcohol was a major factor. As a skeptic, atheist, and scientist, any “evidence” offered on even a film that was a documentary and not just a dramatization with “real” footage in it would have to be pretty watertight and be able to be corroborated, especially concerning ghosts, alien possessions etc due to the virtual impossibility of the claim.

sorry the alcoholism part should be in another sentence as the link above says that the FBI an actual existing organisation concluded that alcoholism was responsible for disappearences and it would appear, much of the fabrication/exaggeration of events

I watched it last night and I’m CONVINCED that what I saw was real!! It has totally left my girlfriend and I extremely unsettled. It bugs me how sceptical you are. Does an alien have to come and slap you in the face for you to believe?!

“Critics” and all,

In regards to this movie, and to our existence in general, the question that plagues me is, why must one always have proof of something? This movie states very clearly that “it’s up to you to decide what you believe”. I found this movie quite disturbing, and found myself still unsettled nearly an hour after having left the theater, but my reasons for this are far removed from what most might assume. But, alas, I will not share those reasons with you. Why? Because I am free to believe what I will, and I need no one’s approval to validate those beliefs. No matter what ANYONE believes, though, there will always be things in this life that lie beyond the realm of explaination or proof, and the naivety of humankind to dismiss anything that doesn’t come neatly packaged in an envelope marked “evidence”, is laughable at best. The details of whether or not the footage in authentic, or even if you did or didn’t like the movie, are moot. Find some friends to discuss your opinions with, instead of thinking that any stranger on the other end of a keyboard even cares in the slightest what you think.

why would you post then. You are free to believe anything you like but please don’t label people naive for wanting some tiny speck of evidence to base their beliefs on. There are things humanity has not explained yet so lets just put everything we don’t understand down to aliens, thats more logical. Remember humanity used to have no knowledge of gravity, if you had lived before the time of Newton would you have put the fact that we’re not floating around down to aliens?

Never did I say anything about evidence not being important, nor did I in any way reference that we should “just put everything we don’t understand down to aliens”; maybe you should read more slowly.

I don’t expect that you would care what I think, anyway. On the rare occasion I post a comment on something, I make it a point to promote open thinking. If I’m going to like a movie, it’s because I SAW it first, not because somebody else told me they did or didn’t like it. Wouldn’t you agree that’s a fair way of treating things? In the same respect, if I’m going to believe something, it’s not going to be because Hollywood told me it’s real or because you told me it isn’t; it will be based on my own explorations, experiences, and discoveries.

The simple truth is, I stumbled across this site while trying to find some actual articles regarding the events of the movie. Sadly, the search engines results are clogged with page after page of people shouting their opinions to the world, and I became frustrated. So I gave in to temptation and wrote a bit of my opinion as well. My mistake.

But, you are right, I shouldn’t be bothering wih this any longer, lest I negate my own arguments or have my words misinterpreted again. Guess I’ll just go do some more exploring and figure things out for myself.

“Never did I say anything about evidence not being important” even though you clearly said “why must one always have proof of something?”, inferring that proof is not important, and to have proof you need evidence therefore you suggest evidence is not important.
I was not commenting on the films artistic merits or ability to unnerve people but rather that the film obviously does not show true alien abduction events because of the impossibility of it. If you enjoyed the movie because it was a good movie then fine, but if you now believe in the supernatural and aliens because of it then you are a fool because it is obvious that they do not exist and that the scenes in the film are not real. You also state that you “promote open thinking” but then despair at the fact that other people have voiced their opinions on the movie and are annoyed at the fact that someone is challenging you to think about your own view of it.

Sorry, I don’t check this site enough. Clearly this thread has come upon some heated debate, and i don’t have enough time to sit here and read it at work. However, I will quickly expand on what I had to say earlier. First, I am realizing that this movies “fear-factor” totally hinges on the whether or not you believe the “Case Footage” is real or not. I have always been a sissy for abduction theories, and they always get me going. SO, I am on the believer side i guess. While watching the movie, i was getting chills. I have NEVER had that in a movie before. I have to say acting wise, Will Patton was the downfall; coming on a little strong. But otherwise the acting was believable and fun to watch. Other than the director being a bad choice for the interviewer, I found no qualms with the actual interview segments. To my point, about the closing line: clearly, from the other posters, if you believe the footage then you find this to be a better film. So if you are scared of E.T., you better believe you will be shitting yourself over this movie.

Guys, watched the film and enjoyed it to be honest. But it’s a Sci-Fi FILM and thats’ it. Why this opinion you ask? I have lived in Nome, Alaska for 38 years. Yes some people have gone missing as well as other people throughout the USA and some of these beg explanation. The film shows Nome as a valley, it’s actually flat with one tiny hill that I run up and down regularly. Most of the sheriffs we have had are quiet homely men. I’ve known all of them and none would react this way. For something like this to happen in my town I’d know. To add to that I would like to beleive and, do beleive in extra terrestrial life but I think there are more exciting places than my beloved nome. Good entertainment though and will probably boost our visitor numbers for all the wrong reasons. I think I may open a “little green cafe”.

ok, another person who wants to say this story is untrue. well first off, me actually being a person who has studied massively on the sumerians/akkadians and also the annunaki, id like to say i like this movie alot. First off, if any of you knew, that yes, the sumerians were the first civilization, and also FACT= they say that we came from a race of giants that ruled us before the great flood, FACT=They have drawings of rockets, space ships/space suits, laboratorys, giant aliens with the e.t heads next to smaller man like figures…. it gets weirder and weirder. So, if you were going to goto the source for info, would you goto something before the first civilization?? NO. YOU GOTO THE SOURCE. point blank. My theory on this movie? regardless if its real or not? is this. The being that took over her body or whatever you want to say, is an annunaki god, now, if you ever knew about our creators, the annunaki (following the first people on the planet) were a horrible mean, evil, bloodthirsty group of giants (with alien heads) that created man from a prior man that was already on this planet ( that right there would fill the gap in for the missing link, the annunaki created us! makes damn good sense!) they used us for slave work, that right there would put in the reason why we always have to have a slave system of everything, government,people,etc…. well im not going to explain what really is going on on this planet. and also, they guy who said how can we speak a dead language?? um, well, actually, the way we can usually do that is by following languages. Sumerians never died out, there language became infused with the Akkadian language a new language in the mesopotamian region at the time that was built of sumerian, which has vast simularitys, not the same but also, not too far off. and also, trust me, if they can do half the shit they do, then they can speak a language theyve never heard. its called mathematics. And also, whoever wrote this is a douche, thats just my opinion actually. you remind me of that kid i used to beat up next door all the time. His daddy bought him everything and he was brainwashed into believing everything the government said. hahaha. go back to the hamptons….

Detroit, no one is disputing that the Sumerians etc did not exist or that there is such a thing as aliens. Try actually reading what they have written. For someone who has done a lot of “studying” perhaps you should try studying the english language first and get to grips with it before studying other languages. As for being the guy next door who beat me up, I doubt that very much. I’m a logger with a MSc is GIS. To the uneducated thats someone with a little brain power and dedication to study as well as a body that would scare the crap out of you. As for your Facts get them right, I can recommend quite a few books for you if you wish

I went to see this film last week and am still unsettled by its contents. When I left the cinema I was convinced that there was some truth in the whole thing and this really frightened me. So what did I do, I opened up my lap top and decided the only way to calm myself down was to research it and find out whether it was in fact true. It seems some people who have posted comments on here are at the top of the class as far as debate is concerned. However I do not want a debate, like many others, just wanted to know whether I needed to be having a panic attack every night. Although there are good arguments for both sides, there are clearly more non beleivers of the film than there are. It also seems after many google searches that I am unable to find any information on any of these events that allegedly took place in Nome. The power of the internet is too great for this to be so if these events had actually happened.

I saw the movie last night and like Sophie and some of the others I can also say that I was extremely unsettled by what I saw. I have always been intrigued by UFO documentaries. I do believe the audio tracks and video footage used in the movie was real. I have not seen or read of any proof that says it is not real. I am not interested in debating with anyone on what they believe or don’t believe about the movie. Like some people I am only interested in the facts of this story. I have also tried online searches but don’t have the time to go through the thousands of hits returned. If anyone has come across one or more legitimate sites that offer valid information on this story please post for myself and the other truth seekers. I will do the same.

Just seen the film and found it very entertaining, I use the word entertaining because that is what films do entertain us. A few of the people I was sitting with did literally jump out of their seats at one moment. But I don’t think anyone felt particularly scared throughout the film. I did find it interesting but the part that looked potentially faked to me was a scene when Dr. Abbey Tyler was being hypnotized and her face expressions and the wide opening of her mouth and her eyes looking like they were popping out of her skull looked very much like a cartoon rather than real documentary footage. Unfortunately with a film of this nature once you begin to see things that look impossible in it, then this does bring into question the validity of the claim that the documentary footage is real. If it was faked and I am not saying that it was because I still don’t know, then I would have much preferred to have just seen a straight film along exactly the same story line but not a film trying to pretend it was real by showing fake documentary evidence. I think it could have been just as scary if not more scary had it had played itself out as a scary movie not a film based on a scary event that had not happened. This might seem like I’m moaning but I’m not I really liked this film and would recommend it for others to see and it does make you think hence when I get home from seeing the film I for the first time in my life after seeing a film get online and find out what other people’s views are about the film are.

Just seen the film and found it very entertaining, I use the word entertaining because that is what films do entertain us. A few of the people I was sitting with did literally jump out of their seats at one moment. But I don’t think anyone felt particularly scared throughout the film.

it is seriously the scariest movie i’ve ever seen so far since it’s based on true story and real footage. it’s really made me go over again and again in my head whether what i’m watching is truth or fiction. it hurts my little brain you know since i’m no scientist! viewer’s descretion is totally advised on this one.

some critics said that this movie is a ‘sophisticated hoax” but i’m open-minded about it as we used to believe that the world was flat and then someone discovered the world was round. we are aliens to other creatures that may live on other planets as well. so if all evidences mentioned in the movie are 100% proven, then there’s a possibility that there could be something smarter than us out there.

this movie is an unsolved mystery so the most disturbing part is that i may die first before someone can 100% prove this truth or false!! that’s just too bad…

anyway, i think it is a good movie. it’s exciting and scary-fun. it’s hard to believe and hard to not believe. some critic said it’s difficult to watch but i think he or she must be very stupid if he couldn’t understand it. don’t believe anything i or any critics say. go see it for yourself and tell me what you think!

like it’s being said in the movie, what you decide is up to you.

This was a great movie for what it was- real or not doesn’t matter. It was creepy and scared the hell out of everyone in the theater, and seems to disturb everyone who leaves the theater.

Well, I definitely cannot say if I believe or not in the movie… I´ve read stuff on Wikipedia saying Universal settled, saying the movie had fake footage. But then again, Wikipedia is editable, and any fool scared enough to believe what they learned from the movie can edit it and make other fools who completely depend on Wikipedia believe. The footage seemed real. Though something that bugs me about alien movies is that there´s no reason for the aliens to be so obvious. It´s like they´re TRYING to instigate the fear of the unknown and mystery, and uncertainty. Why would they want that, you may ask. There´s absolutely no reason for an alien to say “I am God”, other than to disturb you. But why would they want to disturb you in the first place… But there’s a million possibilities of how an alien encounter could progress. They could always be green, goofy, spanish talking cuties. Why not. We don’t know them, so we’re no one to judge. What takes away some of the credibility of the movie as well is the fact that the aliens seem to adopt the approaching method that scares, that frightens, that intimidates and instigates doubt on humans. Which is, conveniently, the method people want to watch and spend their money on.

And back on topic… Yeah, the review was pathetic. All he said was “the footage wasn’t believable”. Of course not. Almost everyone in the theatre believs it and comes out startled, but the smart supercritic doesn’t, so it’s automatically not believable. Please. What a joke.

ENTERTAINMENT! THATS IT… Guys do you even realize that we are giving our suggestions, debates, critics on this page for what?

Answer= pure entertainment
why: because the film was meant for that, they will make a scary issue and provides the so called ” real footage” bla bla bla its all part of it to complete the book.

I admire who made this movie and who thought of it.. brilliant! it catch many minds and start a big question to human mind which the answer is only in front of you.. ” We are not Alone”

The movie only helped us open and think again about the question of ” Where did we came from?’ Adam and Eve? hahaha
why do you think Eve came from Adam’s rib? Answer: because she was a newly made woman that was taken from Adam’s rib (DNA) sample and created for him to have companion.
time has changed a lot and it has been prove that we are capable of developing technologies..
Time of Moses = Chariot, Swords, Etc.
Time Today: Spaceship, Nuclear Stealth, Underground Cities, Discovering lost Cities like Atlantis..
Conclusion: Can you see the difference from the time of moses and now? where did our inventors got their ideas? self formulated? LOL there must be something . . . It is designed for it to happen..

WE are programmed.. my fellas

thank you for reading my OPINION ” I say it again ” OPINION”

can you imagine how big is the universe? and you think that the earth is the only planet were we dwell is the only place that has life form/

YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME ^^

I am among those UFO believer. Right after I finish watching this movie… I thought this is the best damn ever re-enact documentation film yet, but after I researched and found this article relating to this movie(http://www.examiner.com/x-22738-New-Haven-Movie-Examiner~y2009m9d5-The-real-story-behind-The-Fourth-Kind), I was so disappointed. How the producer and director can misleading us into believing there are some scenes of real event actual footage in this movie when everything about this movie is 100% fictitious. That mean any movies to be make after this Hollywood can just label it as ‘BASE ON ACTUAL EVENTS’ when they are not so they can draw audience? I cannot judge on your freedom of thought but to let people to label or to fool us anyway that they like so we can get a kick out of entertainment is a big ‘NO NO’. This movie would get my vote even if it been label fiction and skip out all those fake alias and actual footage parts.

This film has just arrived to Mexico. Here’s what I find ridiculous: How come a super advanced civilization would use those horrible, gigantic, scary drills? That doesn’t make sense at all. In our primitive civilization we are just about to conquer , via nanotechnology, intelligent pills. Not even a dentist uses that can of massive drills. To me is more like a repressed fear coupled with collective hysteria.

Ok, to start off the movie was great! It was really believable and moving and the actors did a good job. I started up google to see if I could find information on some of the “real” characters and the town called Nome, Alaska and I couldn’t find anything.. But the weird thing was that my Google picture looked like a set of Hyroglyphs and that was really random because it’s the first time I’ve seen that font and why would it be that way after just watching the movie?… A little weird, but I would like to know if anyone finds some real information about the true characters and if Dr. Abigail Tyler really exists in a hospital on the east coast because I actually shed a few tears and I would feel devistated if she is a real person laying in a hospital bed. She looked really miserable and it makes me want to meet her and try to get to the bottom of her daughter being missing… I was just about to submit this whole thing when I decided to double check some more sites and it said that the locals at Nome, Alaska say its a hokes… damn, all we need to know is if the characters “real” names are really real, come on now… Wheres this Awolowa Odusami guy????

And I do agree that it was so much better than paranormal activity. C’mon we do have to give them some credit, it does make you believe for a second that the footage is true but at the end ALIENS DO NOT EXIST, and if they do there is not such thing as alien abduction for Christ sake that is not happening. It would mean that there is an entire race way more intelligent than us that actually “watches” us. Is just so ignorant especially when the world has existed for millions of years. Wouldn’t they have come already? PLEASE PEOPLE BE SMART!

It would appear the films just a film all done for entertainment.. maybee its purpose was to get people askin questions and researchin. i found it believable same as paranormal activity and paranormal eninty claimin to have Real footage. i didnt realise they were Aloud legally to do that.. Oh Well. Good film actual footage unnecessary though, But weither Aliens exsist im not convincened but theres something deffinitly disturbing about the first civilisation (sumerians) And the suggestion the they could predict the future about 6000years before the first chapter Genesis of the bible woz written, How the fuck did the know that we would send rockets into space and wear space suits.. And something about our creators being giants with alien heads WTF!!!

It is common to hear sceptics debunk things they do not understand. But I find them arrogant generally, and the explanations sceptics offer for very unusual phenomena sometimes require of me far too much faith.
It should not be hard for an honest person to admit that there are things which he/she cannot fully explain or understand. But for sceptics, often it is.
The archive footage and recording of the deputy who was watching the Tyler house is revealing. He clearly said he saw something over the Tyler house and he said it was pulling them out of the house.
The deputy in question was not a believer in alien abductions or supernatural abductions, at least not before that night. I wonder how he feels now. There are several segments of archival video which show and record things which are difficult to understand: the man “Scott” rising off his bed, the strange voice speaking Sumerian language, a language which has not been spoken by humans since before the times of Egyptian hieroglyphics.
I for one have no problem admitting that there are things I do not understand. I am a scientist and a member of Mensa. I am smart enough to realize there are things which we are not presently able to explain. I see no reason to attempt to explain these things with tortured logic, or deny what the video and audio recorded.

I saw the movie last night with friends. I think its totally dishonest of the director/producers to preface and end the film with footage that its true. Most people rely on these credit/notes for some reference. For fiction the movie really sucks. If you assume its based on truth – its not too bad. For the dishonesty – i would give it ZERO stars. They main actors must be really desperate to play a role in such a sham. The hypnosis should have been a give away – as its BS in real life. To those who say “lighten up” and “its fiction”. The end/notes start notes are off limits. The next thing is that they will be misrepresenting the actors names etc. Remember they did not give the real star – Charlotte Milchard was not even credited! No wonder this film did so poorly in the box office – too many persons found out about the deception before and hence judged it on that basis – so much for scam marketing.

First off, if you are going to believe everything to government is telling you, you obviously don’t understand the American government. Your skepticism is petty expecially considering all your claims are based on facts the government gives you. In all honest, do you think that if aliens existed our government would let us know about it? If so, why is there really an Area 51 that you need top clearance to get into? Why are there so many strange dissaperances all over the world? Why do so many world leaders stright up say that aliens exist? None of this makes sense with your claims. Check your facts and stop being a one minded critic. Review sources before you type up an entire article on your lack of faith in something many know is real.

OK, just watched the film and to most who like these sort of things i.e aliens ufo’s etc, i think you will love the film (i did) :)

so… who cares if fake or not like guys said here and on the film its up to you what you believe. I think aliens are real it’s more logical then most things, but going by this film i could say it could of happen wont make mind up till done more research.

But pleases dont say its fake etc when your can’t say it is without “proof” why people always say “prove” its real you “prove” its fake… i dont go into church on a sunday and shout out FAKE! because i don’t believe in god even though i think this film is more real to thoughs who go to church or temples and pray in their millions.

ah who cares watch the film and have fun. keep eye on the sky and see if you are lucky to be a believe :)

“The Fourth Kind” is one of the most important films ever made on the subject of alien abductions. The last one that came closest was “Communion”, the Witney Strieber case, but this film backs up the victim’s claims with actual/acted audio and video footage in split screen format. Also, the film portrays the alien entities as true aliens with completely unknown agendas, offering a level of discription that suggest a terrifying malevolence that drove most victims to horrific acts of madness.
If you have not studied history and religion with the mindset of possible alien/human interaction, you may be insufficiently informed to really understand the subtle nuances presented in this film. With a degree of determination, anyone can find reasons to discredit the movie claims. Like #44 suggest, three quarters of the world’s population believe in gods they have no empirical proof exist, most insisting they will go to “Heaven”, some place in the cosmos. The fact aliens have been so ingrained in human history, aliens may as well have been the (G)ods they pray to.

What I know about everything about 2012 to alien abduction,ghost and demon’s, as well God that can fit with all these phenomenon. There is multiple plausible evidence…

1-Schizophrenia, advanced or not it depend; These poeple can ears and see thing’s, even hallucinate image and situation. And it can occur to them all the time… Ps; Report’s of poeple who have lived something in their past can be relayed to the mind, imagination and when they have to speak about it, it’s too late the time have done Somme hole in the memories… And all these poeple diagnosed they’re is a similarity as well. The fact that God, the good evil and paradise do exist for them because they’ve seen it they say…The say that they know and we don’t. They say that something will soon be happening…?

2-Publicity and fear for a purpose or not??? By attracting poeple to the scene. If you count approximately the number of alien’s believer’s and all the septic poeple as well as all the sci-fi fan’s. We can studies there that a bunch of poeple that will want to see the next movie a bout’s alien’s abduction, encounter etc if we make publicity of this next movie that we will be called (The Fourth Kind) and if we say that it is real. Yes so…. Human’s, by human I mean us… We are the most of us, curious about the unknown (Everything), and more and more we are because of this 2012 theories…. Here in this movie, we will take many subject and by unifying them, we will play whit human natural emotion and curiosity.
Here is the list…
A-Alien abduction’s
B-Crime (A killer is in the town)
C-The famous Alien beam (That now will take you to the sky even throughout matter as the ceiling of the house in this case)
D-Demon’s and possessed poeple (The levitation and the voice)
E-The use of Annunakis ancient language (speaking thrue every poeple that are hypnosed)

2012- Because of the Annunakis passage in the movie, if you inform yourself about it, they are from Nibiru the supposed planet that is going to pass close from our planet and on it, they have a race alled nephilim and is in direct junction whit summerian in what they say on the internet about Nebiru (Nibiru or the planet x)is this. All this…

I have never ear about this story live. And I have seen so much, fakes, amateur footage and some that will actually put 3d scenes object in their live recording, because they studied in media, movie and 3d scene or video game making. Software of today are actually really powerful and to much affordable to everyone, so poeple make fake’s… Not cool by the way, playing whit what is real and not, and playing whit what we don’t even know, is not cool.

I have just seen that movie and now I am doing some research… Yes indeed this movie is disturbing, but it is not the first one of it’s style.

If that movie is edited by a big company too, they expect a big opening that will make a lots of money for them so it can be marketing. Since we know about the 2012 theories, they are so many of them as well, a lot’s of poeple make book’s, studies and movies, and we will all go see them, why. It is so obvious, our human curiosity. And now what, a lot’s of poeple start to believe of what the movies say…

I do not believe to anything, the reason is simple, the word believe is inappropriate. everyone around me ask often to me if I believe to god, ghost, alien, and to secret societies etc. I will say to them as here that I do not believe to any of that nor anything. Because that word there (Believe) IS totally inappropriate to tell about what you actually thinks. It is if we can’t judge and or Annalise a situation in our life, an image or an abject that we see whit our eyes etc.

Why do paranormal phenomenon just sort of happen when we are afraid, where it is dark, never in the day or in the day but in darker place as shadows, hunted house etc. Why alien if they exist don say hello or at least try to make contact and seem to use us as their own will.
Why poeple are in total fear when all this happen?

Some poeple have tell me that fear can play a huge part on the alucination parts in our mind’s. Still I don’t aplie totally this theorie but it is plausibele,

Yes their is something weird about our history. I have always sayed to poeple that egyptian has never posses slaves because they where a society, and they had the time to understand clearly how to work in huge grousps. If the worker r healty and happy the production will be better etc…

And now they have discover the proof…

And what about the crystal skull….

We are perhaps not the only poeple who lived on this world, but we are here and now. Happen your eyes… If we all who have seen this movie, if we where living in Peru, without tv and knowledge learn at school and moreover in our civilized life. Would you care?
And probably by this mean, living without knowledge, just the fact of that magic box whit displaying image on it (TV) can be a God’s artifact as well. For someone without any civilized knowledge.

Their is no choice on believing to something or not…
To this day, when we say I believe in something, that something is always something that do not exist our is beyond every possible fact etc…

This movie is creepy, and the girls to whom it happen (Abbey Tyler) was in the movie in all make-up… Don’t tell me she is like this every day. And if it is the true girl, she actually look crazy…Probably the dose of ornamentation… I don’t know…

If you believe that was all live real recording that they show to us, you should believe to alien versus predator and star-wars as well…
Remember that in star wars Annakin sky-walker is born without dad from a virgin as for Jesus… Chew on that…

No kidding.

I only believe in the real Facts not Fakes,Hoax or Deception, I believe in Physical world and Spiritual realms like Heaven, Hell, God,Christ, Holy Spirit, Arch Angels, Angels, Gods creatures, I know for a fact that Lucifer the Devil exist with his Servants Demons! and Evil spirits. That’s who makes our Beautiful life and world not Beautiful anymore!

This Guy Huw is right though I’m on his side!

“I did find it interesting but the part that looked potentially faked to me was a scene when Dr. Abbey Tyler was being hypnotized and her face expressions and the wide opening of her mouth and her eyes looking like they were popping out of her skull looked very much like a cartoon rather than real documentary footage.”

What this guys says is what I say too! this is what really makes this Documentary a Hoax and a Fake! Abigail Emily Tylers Mouth wide open like from a Sci Fi movie Mummy lol, you can clearly tell its been done on computer and whats up with the distorted video all the time? Also Her eyes popping out like crazy and the Levitation part is fake!

But This seem’s to be interesting facts and pretty mystical?? about what Erich Von Daniken who found some weird and unexplained facts??

Chariots of the Gods, Erich Von Daniken

Anyways to my own Conclusion and Bible study, This Movie Like all others like 2012, and other fake ones, is some kind of Government Deception!, My guess is that this is some kind of New Age Movement to lead ppl away in the real facts! who try to convince people through Hollywood and Blockbuster, that there are UFO’s, Aliens and Alien Abductions going on, And this whole b.s. story about Zecharia Sitchins propaganda! some kind of Deception agent working for New Age group! to really deceive people about some kind of fake Anunnaki race of beings that live on a planet called Nebiru and it fly’s through our earths solar system every 65,000 yrs or so? and it will be here in 2012 and all the Annunaki beings will come to our earth and eat our brains alive! and makes us slaves again! LMAO xe xe xe!! I would be watching out for that fake planet and these fake beings hahhaha..! and be laughing when its not going to be in the skies! Also that David Icke New age Deception Agent, that spreads total lies to ppl about A reptilian race living some where in the other galaxy, and they shape shift into people and live and work among us LOL! and all the other Deceivers that spread Deception! around us is a total B.S! they are the Workers of the Devil himself, leading people in to the fantasies! To Mask the real truth about our beautiful world and our Creator God almighty the creator of all living breathing things in our world and the galaxies and beyond!

Don’t believe everything you see or read on TV,News,Movies,Internet,Newspapers,Cable,Theaters,Blockbuster a lot of it is Mass Deceptions and unfortunately not True!

Aliens = Great Deception!
Alien abductions = Big Hoax and a lie!
UFOs = May be government secret flying objects? NOT ALIENS LOL
Levitation = May be real but not how God would represent himself so probably its from the Devil!
Anunnaki = Bible never talks about it, Zacheria Sitchin don’t know how to read Sumerian heliography,texts he ain’t that smart, he is making up his own fantasies about Sumerian heliography and texts, to astray people away from facts and truth about God!
Area 51 = Secret base for making new technological jets or planes? Unfortunately not Alien technology since Aliens is a Hoax lol..
Evil Spirits = True and Fact
Satan,Demons, Hell = True and Fact
God,Christ,Holy Ghost is the Trinity God = True and Fact
Arch Angels, Angels, Heaven,Afterlife,Eternal Soul in us = True and Fact
Word of God(Bible) = True and Fact
Sons of God,Rephaim,Nephelim,Giants,examples: Goliath,6 Toed and 6 Fingered Giants,Tower of Babel examples: Babylonians,Sumerians, ancient civilization,King Nebuchadnezzar, Noah’s Ark,World Flood,Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah,Jews as slaves in Egypt for some hundred yrs. = ALL True and Fact!!

Movie is creepy but another deception tool for Mass Alien Agenda!!
What I said is the Truth and Facts do your own research to believe me!!

This question is for Xavier… How can you be an atheist and a scientist in the same time? From what i can remember…two of the greatest scientist of humanity , sir Isac Newton and Albert Einstein, believed in the concept of God…you know…that higher being that gave you your arrogance and intelligence. From my poor understanding, science proved that shit just don’t happens, it takes someone or something to happen…as in… a all mighty Dude that created you.
And you probably are thinking “Crap…another catholic asshole that thinks he knows something about God”. Well mate…I’m not catholic, I’m orthodox and i have my own concept about God.
I can’t understand why someone beliefs that there is no higher being or/and aliens and that they are the only and the most powerful being/creature/race/civilization in the bloody Universe. I’m not criticizing you for your point of view, i just wanna know how can you be so arrogant( you are by far not a sceptic).

P.S.: i know i’m off topic, i know i’ll be cursed and i know that Xavier will never read this…i’m just wasting time…both mine and yours(Random reader).

We look at the story claims,the 24 missing people, the involvement of FBI (not at all what movie potrayed)the serial killers theory, Nome’s history of “Green men” sightings and the 1930 “disappearance” of Inuit village near Lake Anjikuni.

Mr Fava’s critizism of the film seems to be drive more by his skepticism of the premise. I think the producer’s of the “Fourth Kind” did an admirable job, considering the original participants did not want themselves portrayed or their actual testimony included. The purpose of the film was not so much intended to scare, but to inform the public of alien internvention beyond human control. There have been countless disappearences of individuals and entire groups which have been completely documented and still unexplained. Sure, the film has holes but overall, presents a compelling case. Professional testimony which lends credence to alien abductions or even direct observation, has lead to loss of careers because official denial wants to keep such claims hidden from the public. The general public is more and more accepting of this reality but, a few do panic at the idea; there are extraterrestrial entities that come to Earth with intentions that are far beyond human understanding or control.

The guy writing this review is unimaginative at best, he obviously isn’t knowledgeable on Abduction Phenomena, and apparently he has never met anyone in law enforcement. He reminds me of Susan Sarandon telling Tim curry, “He has too many muscles..”
“WELL I DIDN’T MAKE HIM FOR YOU!”
The Fourth Kind was one of the creepiest movies I have ever had the good fortune to watch. It took the Alien Abduction Phenomena, gave it a good wrap across the knuckles and startled it to attention. It was a very enjoyable movie.
Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen the film!!

OK many people are left wondering if this movie was “real” Well a quick trip to the internet movie database gives the names of the ACTORS in the “REAL” footage. Sorry to disappoint the Abduction community, but it’s a movie not a documentary.

Wow, you have to be either really religious or really retarded and ignorant to believe that this world really runs on its own, or that aliens don’t exist, c’mon man its OBVIOUS that aliens exist, its OBVIOUS that extra-terrestrials exist because this universe, THIS GALAXY ALONE is way too mind-bogglingly big, we can’t be the only advanced creature to be in the entire universe or even this small galaxy. Of course aliens exist, you’d have to be a moron to believe otherwise, and when you see hard recorded evidence of something that no other person has recorded and still think that theres not even a slight chance, you leave yourself to be in denial or just an idiot. Oh cuz a guy levitating and some random voice speaking fuckin SUMERIAN is perfectly normal especially since sumerians have been GONE for a jesus-cluster-fuck amount of years. God it amazes me how stupid some people are.

Your targeted rebuttal is way off the mark if you are aimming at any post I have made. As far as alien life is concerned, you are preaching to the choir. I am in complete agreement the universe is teeming with life forms, from one cell amoeba to grandious, extremely advanced civilizations. From what I understand they have created life hear on Earth and offered instruction manuals to their human creations in the form of sacred text and codices (Holy Bible, i.e.)

The meer fact there have been 107 comments on the movie indicates there are many people who’ve taken the subject very seriously, as well they should have. Alien abductions are nothing new. They have been part of human history from its beginning. For the most part, they are responsible for the basis of religions.

I don’t normally google or IMDB a movie until after I watch it – but the ‘real’ Dr. Abbey Tyler was too over acted & set up to be real – it’s an ok movie, but totally faked. I wish they just kept it as a good sci fi movie – all this Blare Witch style filming is getting rather old…and boring.

Your post reveals not only a fearful, childish attitude, lashing out at things completely beyond your pathetic understanding, but also your lack of respect for this forum. You can’t even write a legible sentence without punctuating with schoolyard profanity. So please keep your stupid comments to yourself and let the rest of us seriously debate very real issues.

To debate on ad nauseum about whether the movie was real or accurate does not refute the fact abductions do occur.

Your review is damn stupid and unintelligible!! A movie is a movie. They never said it was based on real events. It’s a beautifully written and produced movie. And that’s just what it is. A fine movie. You must learn to willingly suspend your disbelief in order to enjoy such works of art.

Ok no I don’t think anything about this movie is logit but u guys can think watever u want, but I do have something to say. Ok so a guy named Jared posted why must we have proof to know something exists? -__________- THE FUCk? How is someone Goanna say that, shit bro let’s not have evidence and science and believe everything anyone tells u ever. The dumbest thing anyone can say is we don’t need evidence to “know” somethings real. Fine go believe whatever u want but dont just sit around in public and make yourself look dumb by saying not to question things.

Uh, okay.. to everyone on this website that believed the content was real, like I did when I first watched it, being a usual believer in contact possibilities… After doing my research and finding out, undoubtedly, that this is fake, I came to the realization that probably the one crucial detail that makes people believe that the “real” footage is real is the MOST CRAFTY and “almost” GENIUS part about the film–it all looked like it was filmed in the year 2000.

So this brings up the real issue; has anyone even given a shred of thought to the possibility that the director and producers just got their hands on old cameras from 10-20 years ago and filmed everything on them, changing the dates to whatever dates they wanted? I mean, real life looks like real life forever; life wasn’t black and white in the 1920s, only the cameras captured pictures in black and white. Anyone can get a camera from 1958 and make it look like an Elvis Presley concert.

Just some food forthought… please don’t fall for the shit Hollywood tries to feed you… Its all for money, all the time. Universal was sued for what they did, and the film wasn’t even filmed in Nome. People from Nome will tell you that Nome doesn’t look like that.

UHMMM YEA ID HAVE TO SERIOUSLY DISAGREE. IMM A GROWN ASS WOMEN AND I DO NOT EVEN BELIEVE IN ALIENS… AND THIS MOVIE SCARED ME. WHY? BECAUSE OF THE THOUGHT THAT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY HAPPENED TO THESE PEOPLE AND IF UR CAPABLE OF SITTING AND WATCHING A MAN MURDER HIS OWN WIFE AND KIDS LIKE THAT IN COLD BLOOD ON ONE OF THOSE EVIDENCE TAPES.. – KNOWING THAT WAS REAL… AND UR NOT FREAKED OUT… ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT UR EITHER A COP OR WRK SUM KIND OF JOB THAT MAY DESENSATIZE U TO THE REALITY THAT THOSE R LIVING PPL WOMEN AND CHILDRE IN THAT HOUSE TERRRIFIED OF DADDY… AND THEIR LAST THOUGHTS WILL BE PANICED AND WHYY? AND THAN THATS IT. SO I MEAN IF THAT DOESNT SCARE PPL KNOWING THAT UR OWN HUSBAND COULD END UP KILLING U — OVER A MIND AFIXATION. . THAN WOW. signs is scary – true life murders, suicides, missing children,, al unanswered ,… are not? AT THAT POINT ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THAT EVEN IF THE FILM WAS FILMED POORLY. IT WAS CLEARLY A FILM THAT HAD A REASON TO BE MADE. A REASON OTHER THAN UR OWN ENTERTAINMENT.. THATS WHEN U HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF WAS THE MESSAGE SENT. YES.
I FOR ONE HAD NO IDEA THAT ALASKA WAS SUCH A BIG DEAL FER ALIEN THINGS…. AND ITS GETTING SUMONES STORY OUT THERE… I THINK MAYBE PPL SHOULD LOOK HARDER AT HOW MUCH WRK IT MUST HAVE BEEN TO GATHER THE FEW THINGS FROM REALITY THAT THEY COULD AND THAT THEY WERE EVEN ABLE TO DO THIS AND PROJECTS LIKE THIS USUALLY GET SHUT DOW WHEN THERES A POINT TO THE STORY THAT MANY PPL DO NOT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT AND THAT THE GOV DOESNT REALLLLY WANT NORMAL SOCIETY SEEING… SO YEA ID HAVE TO GIVE THAT A BIG 5 STARS JUS FER BEING ABLE TO FINISH, AND PUT OUT THERE AND FILM BASED ON REALITY WITH SOO MUCH EVIDENCE FR THE FIRST TIME ITS LIKE EVERY OTHER SCARY MOVIE THAT CLAIMS TO BE TRUE DOESNT HAVE JACK SHIT FER ACTUAL VIDEO/TAPE FOOTAGE ..ECT ECT…. LIKE WHAT ALL THESE PPL MOVE INTO HAUNTED HOUSES AND DONT EVER ONCE GRAB A DAM CAM CORDER WHEN THEYRE BEING HAUNTED. AT LEAST THIS WAS REALISTIC. AND YES SUPPER F8CKING SCARY TO THINK IT COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN AGAIN. <3
