The Fourth Kind

In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. The scale consists of four kinds. When a UFO is sighted, it is called an encounter of the first kind. When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind. When contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is the third kind. The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind.

The Fouth Kind is a alien abduction movie starring Mila Jovovich (The Fifth Element) that uses ‘documentary footage’ with re-enacted scenes. The title was derived from J. Allen Hynek’s classification of close encounters with aliens, in which the fourth kind represents an alien abduction.

Set in modern-day Nome, Alaska, The Fourth kind is based on FBI investigations into the mysterious deaths and disappearance of its inhabitants and psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) videotaped sessions with traumatized patients that unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.
