A thriller involving an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover up.
As the Barrett family's peaceful suburban life is rocked by an escalating series of disturbing events, they come to learn that a terrifying and deadly force is after them, one which may have arrived from beyond the stars.
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. Written by

Early in the movie (approximately 9 minutes) Abbey is flying a plane over mountains and approaches a town that is labeled "Nome, Alaska." The town is surrounded by vast mountain ranges and lush greenery. Satellite images of Nome Alaska from Google Maps show no elevation or mountain ranges anywhere near the Nome. The Google Maps images also show a very large airport and runways to the north west of Nome which should be visible when Abbey is flying over what was labeled Nome. The airport/runways are not there in the movie. See more »

Be warned: The Fourth Kind will keep you on the edge of your seat
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 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.
