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.
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 »
I'm actress Milla Jovovich, and I will be portraying Dr. Abigail Tyler in The Fourth Kind. This film is a dramatization of events that occurred October 1st through the 9th of 2000, in the Northern Alaskan town of Nome. To better explain the events of this story, the director has included actual archived footage throughout the film. This footage was acquired from Nome psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler, who has personally documented over 65 hours of video and audio materials during the ...

For those who thought Chariots of the Gods was a work of nonfiction
Designed for the gullible and the easily impressed, "The Fourth Kind" (as in "Close Encounters of ") is an alien-abduction tale that is long on gimmickry and contrivance and short on credibility and suspense.
Milla Jovovich plays a hypnotherapist in Nome, Alaska, who, in 2000, allegedly discovered that some mighty strange things had begun happening to the residents of the town, incidents very possibly extraterrestrial in nature. The movie mixes re-enactments of the events at the time with audio and video recordings purportedly showing us actual, first-hand accounts of those events – although anytime anything of any real interest or significance starts to occur, the sound and images conveniently go to static.
Directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, this warmed-over serving of "Chariots of the Gods" foolishness – combining ancient Sumerian dialects with invasive body-cavity probing – is strictly for the tin-foil hat crowd.
