The Fourth Kind Movie Review
The fourth kind is a film that is in the spirit of Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, were the story is played for real, with either archive footage that looks almost authentic or some stuff that is loosely based on real happenings and quite often that's what makes it scary, often in this film there are some disturbing things going on with supposed alien abductions.
The story begins with an interview starting of a Dr Tyler, who is introduced as being played by the actor Milla Jovich and the camera cuts in between the two through out the film as the real Dr Tyler retells the story of what happened, whilst Milla plays the scenes of the character, it's a clever mix of real reality and fiction, although even the real stuff is more than likely fiction, but it is believable, to such an extent that you sympathize for Dr Tyler.
Now as the story unfolds we learn that one night her husband was murdered and they never found out who did it, but as the story goes on things play out and we found out the truth, as well as some real life under hypnosis accounts of alien abductions and a couple of freaky ones towards the end when a man laying on a bed sits up screaming this Sumerian language as it's described in the film, almost gave me a heart attack and you can see for a split second he's floating off the bed and in pain, whilst the camera goes all blurry with some kind of interference.
This was a sad film, especially since the story is a true story, but in the context of realising it's a true story, you do think yeah and what parts are true and what are fiction? the edges of the truth and the Hollywood movie blurs together as one, and so it's a case of just watching the damn thing and deciding for yourself.
The film had enough interest and intrigue to keep me entertained and the haunting voice of the Real Dr Tyler at the end will stay with me forever.
