For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated by space. When I was younger I remember really wanting to go to Space Camp and to be an astronaut when I grew up. Sadly, neither happened, but my curiousity for space never dwindled, in fact it grew, especially when it comes to life on other planets.
I so badly want to believe in aliens. I just think there is so much that we still don’t know and probably won’t know about what is out there. I think that is why there is such great alien content out there.
This week I am writing about my favorite alien movie of all time, The Fourth Kind. The Fourth Kind got me all kinds of messed up when I first saw it. It brilliantly starts with the lead actress, Milla Jovovich comes out and introduces herself and talks about the role she is about to play. This really gives the audience the feeling that, oh, this is based on a true story.
According to the film, there are four kinds of alien encounters. The first is a sighting. The second is evidence. The third is contact. And the fourth is abduction.
The film centers on the town of Nome, Alaska where people continue to go missing. Jovovich plays Dr. Abigail Emily Tyler, a psychologist who has been using hypnosis on her patients to get them to relive and recover their memories. Here’s where the film gets unique. They show the actors on one side if the screen but then next to them is “found footage” of the actual Dr. Tyler and her patients. This offers some really disturbing visuals and keeps you wandering if this is all true.
So if you are in the mood for something spooky, unsettling, and a film that gets you thinking, I cannot recommend The Fourth Kind enough. What’s your favorite alien film? Have you ever seen a UFO? Do you think the Men in Black are real? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Stay spooky 👽
