We've all heard of the movie The Fourth kind- you know the one with actor Milla Jovovich who portrays Dr. Abigail Tyler- the one who was the therapist to a bunch of patients of Alien abductions in Nome , Alaska and then finds out she's one herself.
Yep...that's the basis of this movie story and I just finished watching it this afternoon.
The movie starts off with actress Milla Jovovich coming up and stating
"although she would be playing the part of “real life” psychologist Dr Abigail Emily Tyler, the movie would be interspersed with real footage of interviews with patients and police video of events that besieged the small Alaskan town of Nome. " -http://creation.com/the-fourth-kind
So you now proceed on into this movie believing this is all based on real evidence that happened in Nome, Alaska. As Milla Jovovich said you find "actual" recordings of Dr. Abigail Tyler's voice and "actual" recordings" of interviews of her and her patients intertwined within the movie. This now is giving you the impression that every last detail of the script was based upon factual occurrences and not speculation.
By the end of the movie, you are now perhaps, maybe, sorta, oh yeah I am! just as scared as the those patients and Dr. Abigail Tyler was.
You've just watched these "actual" recordings of these "patients transmogrification into contorted shapes as they scream with ear-piercing terror". ( This was stated so much better than I could have) and have got to be at least thinking, Is this real?
I must confess through out and a little while after, I believed that it was. I mean come on...those were supposed to be actual footage and then a couple of actors said they will be portraying actual persons. - Wait...I did just write a couple of actors....hmmm...
Yes, we've heard tons and tons of times of declarations of alien abductions or sightings. Its talked about just as much as ghost phenomenon. First, please don't take this as me saying everything about aliens is not real, cause I'm not. I have my thoughts, but I'm keeping those to myself. This is not about my thoughts, this is about if this movie is about real stuff that supposedly happened in Nome, Alaska .
It's a very good question and I wasn't the only one who asked it.
So now tell us A.D. What's the scoop.
No. It is not real. It was all made up and you would be surprised how far Universal went to make you think it was.
Yep, Universal has been a bad, bad, um boy? Apparently they created a bunch of fake newspaper articles for viral marketing for the movie The Fourth Kind.
In real life, there was a string of disappearances in the small town on the west coast of Alaska, not far from the Bering Strait, in which the FBI were brought in to investigate in 2005. The victims were largely native men traveling to the town from smaller villages and went missing. The FBI looked into about 20 cases and found alcohol and frigid temperatures to be cause of death. Nine bodies were never found. -Source-Fourth kind real?
So...now you know and knowing is half the battle...right.
Either way, the movie was pretty good and even though Universal lost oh about $20,000 in a settlement with the Alaska Press club and then out of the kindness of their hearts contributed $25,000 towards a scholarship fund, they did make some pretty good money. The movie was pretty scary and yes I too did believe it all was real as I watched it, so they fooled me!
So to all you Paranormal lovers, sometimes what you read or watch may not be true,but doesn't mean you have to stop believing :0)
Happy Reading and Happy Alien hunting,
