The Fourth Kind (Movie)
November 6, 2009
The film is supposedly based on actual events, and is set in Nome, Alaska, a town which has a disproportionate number of reported missing people and alleged alien abductions over the last forty years, supported by archived footage. Psychotherapist Dr Abigail Tyler is purpotedly based on a real psychologist who videotapes interviews with the abductees. The abductees all claim they see a strange looking owl at their window, before suffering strange psychological attacks. Recordings from videotapes reveal a distorted voice speaking in Sumerian, the oldest recorded language in Human history, and Tyler begins to suspect a government cover up.
