The Fourth Kind- Nome Alaska Alien Abductions...Was it all true?

Ok, I know this has absolutely nothing to do with writing, books or even giveaways, but it does have something to do with the paranormal (are aliens considered that?) and hey it could be considered a movie review.

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...

Really?

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,

  2. So because a few articles say the movie isn't real that means it isn't??

  4. Well those few articles says it isn't real,but it doesn't necessarily mean this event or something similar to it didn't happen. When it comes to the supernatural, aliens and so forth...we can never say what is true or not true for sure. I would like to think of this particular story as fiction...it is quite a reality to swallow if it were in fact real. Thanks for the drop by Garrick :0)

  7. I was seeing the movie for the fifth time yesterday, in a period of about three years, and searching even Sumerian language, and you know while some scenes appear now to be less credible, a lot turn more real, I am not affiliated with any organizations looking for UFOs or related, but as a human beeping curious, I have no more doubts about the existence of some kind who are not from Here... depends on you...

    2. How can you believe in immaterial beings that spawned only because religion says so and doubt that there are creatures out there in the universe other than us? There is much more evidence of space faring beings in our past than there is evidence that there is some kind of god.

    3. I agree with A.D. I fully believe in ghosts/spirits/demons, but am also on the fence regarding aliens from space. I do not rule it out. You just never know and stranger things have happened...but ghosts do not exist only because religion says so. :) Like the movie says, you can look up your own evidence..."the choice is yours to make"/ lol. :D

  12. Im watching this film now........has me gripped so far. And believable too. Just too many ad breaks :(
    If this was true, would the public really get to find out? There are so many conspiracy theories when it comes to extra terrestrial life,

    1. And this is the downside of the film, that it doesn't help clear up conspiracy questions. The moment the film opened, I was stunned that this was meant to be barren Nome, Alaska. Having worked in frozen Prudhoe Bay and in lush Valdez, I expected to see Nome as frozen tundra. Instead, it was a beauty spot that I'd like to explore. This undermined any Truth of the film, although I know absolutely from personal experience that alien activity is real, this film creates a lot of doubt. If it was filmed in an area far different from Nome then integrity is lacking. Worse, the therapy offices seemed way too extravagant for Nome and, if not authentic, then so were the initial videos of the patients not authentic because they were filmed in the exact same place. Other than that, it seemed that the utter horror of the patients couldn't be made up or acted out so that only leaves us to acknowledge the very real utter horror that laboratory animals experience each and every day at the hands of the real alien invaders working in laboratories and slaughterhouses.

  18. I, like A.D. was convinced (!) that this was real. I'm completely open minded and respect EVERY ONES opinions and beliefs, etc. However, I felt so stunned and horrified during and after the movie, that I was compelled to search the internet for information (so that I could sleep that night), which eventually lead me here. A comment above was interesting to me regarding demons because I started to have that same idea while watching the film. I was also reminded of the ancient Egyptians and their Gods and Goddesses and how odd their appearances are, so could they have been aliens? We'll never know. I think the most disturbing part of this movie, (for me), was the scene when the Sumerian language was interpreted and that "they" had no intentions of letting "Ashley" go. No matter what, this was a great flick, scared the crap out of me in fact, but most importantly it made me think, think, think.

  21. Watched it twice last night. I question the son - why was he so distant from his mother and when the police removed him from the home he told her to let go. He had no problem leaving? Makes you wonder if she's just plain crazy or a bad mother.... Just saying.

  22. I enjoyed the movie...but found out on IMDB that the "real" Abigail Tyler is played by an actress named Charlotte Milchard. It's on her credits and everything...sadly, the movie is a fake, from one end to another. While the language may be real, and it is a fun, spooky movie, it is fake.
