I'll admit it, "The Fourth Kind" caught me completely off guard; I rented it expecting a mildly entertaining mid-budget thriller fashioned after the likes of The X-Files: The Complete Collector's Edition and Steven Spielberg Presents Taken and instead experienced one of the most profoundly scary films that I've seen in a long time. This is no small praise when you consider that I've read a fair number of books and seen a fair number of films and TV shows about UFOs, aliens and abduction phenomena and am completely skeptical about the whole thing (the hard cold figures of Drake's equation negates the possibility of alien contact as far as I'm concerned).Read more ›
While I was pretty sure from the start that the claims of real life footage being in the movie were bogus, it still scared the crap outta me. But the promise of "archival footage" even though it really wasn't annoyed me, so I deducted some points for that.
It starts a little slow but once it gets going it's definitely a good scary movie in my opinion. For me, horror movies aren't about cinematic integrity, but how much they entertain and horrify you. This one fit the bill. Worth a watch(not a purchase), but don't watch it at night. Just a tip.
A Nightmare on Elm St.
Friday the 13th. etc.....
If you are a part of American society that like the same old, recycled horror garbage spit out at you year after year than you will probably hate "The Fourth Kind".
If you're like me and you crave things that are new, original and don't rely on sound effects to scare the living daylights out of you than this movie is a gift from God (Aliens?).
Scared me more than any "slasher" movie has in years.
If you are a fan of the creepier aspects of The X Files then you'll love this movie.
I cried at the end, and that's always a good thing for any movie to accomplish.
Rare, but good. :)
It's hard to understand what is being said.
I know I have had a lot of problems with movies in the past.
Being unable to understand what is being said.
Can I provide you with a helpful hint that has helped me with many a movie where the dialog is spoken softly?
TURN ON THE SUBTITLES!!!
I know that this seems like a no brainer but I'm always surprised how few people realize how helpful a tool the subtitles are in a "softly spoken" movie.
Other than that, I have zero complaints about this film.
Genius from start to finish.
Original, scary and a great film.
This is just my own opinion/ thoughts and review of the film.
What do I believe? The ending left more questions than answers in my opinion. I believe this movie was a very clever rouse by the filmmakers, in the vain of Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity, Exorcism of Emily Rose, Fire in the Sky, The Mothman Prophecies making something that is said to be based on true events be not true at all or taking slightly the most sliver of truths and building a fictitious story around it, seen it done hundreds of times in books and movies. We do get Milla Jovovich in the beginning of the film stating that what we are about to see are reenactments of events mixed with "real" archival footage of interviews/ hypnosis sessions/ of real people all experiencing some kind of UFO phenomena happening around Nome Alaska in Fall of 2000. Milla Jovovich portrays the Dr in the reenactments then through out we get interview snip- its of the real Dr. Tyler. A part of me wanted to believe this was real, but I would think if a noted Dr of Abigail Tyler's profession would have made this case go nationwide, and that Discovery or History Channel or Larry King would have aired some kind of special about UFO abductions and in particular about strange occurrences in and around Nome Alaska. And this definitely could have been an X Files episode, makes me wonder if the director's inspiration came from the X Files. And The supposedly real interviews and hypnosis sessions through out the movie do seem real and genuinely frightening/ disturbing.... and I don't want to forget the owls...Read more ›
