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 ...

Thought provoking, but the word for this movie is "Alias"
Just been to see The Fourth Kind and felt genuinely harrowed by the content. I'd imagine for most people the content of your nappy (Diaper) will depend on your point of view on the subject matter.
I'm firmly of the opinion that it is irrelevant whether the "real" footage is real or not. I think that the word "alias" probably describes nearly everything in the movie, not only the personalities but the locations, times and numbers too.
There is a school of thought that Hollywood is "preparing" the general population for disclosure and comments have been made by "whistle blowers" to the effect that Spielberg, Carter etc have created content which is very similar to some of the things they have "experienced" eg "Taken" and "The X Files"
The Fourth Kind certainly falls into that category (if the testimony of "real" abductees is to be believed)
I personally really liked the way the film was arranged, the parallel shots and the overall sumptuous rich darkness of it all but it may not be to everyone's liking. There was a degree of overdoing the acting especially the actor who played the sheriff. The movie contains some beautiful scenery too.
I think I'd have to say, the subject matter and the way it divides the population is probably the key to decide if you should see the film. Anyone who has studied the subject will probably love the film, those who have not will likely think its rubbish.
