The Fourth Kind Reviews

Michael Szymanski
Sci-Fi Weekly

Frankly, this movie is quite scary when it's viewed with the idea that this is the film version of creepy disappearances that are really happening in Nome, Alaska. When it's not that, it's almost laughable.

(Director) Olatunde Osunsanmi, his cast and crew work so hard to make it all seem so real that you spend more time debating with yourself whether what you are watching is truth or fiction ...

proves that a horror film doesn't need splashy digital effects or pyrotechnics to be effective

The release date is not the fault of the movie.

NYC Movie Guru

Mostly engaging with fleeting scares, stylish cinematography and an initially intriguing premise, but the suspense and chills wane as its script grows increasingly silly, unfocused and dull.

The mission here is to demonstrate how, in this explosive age of dubious information, cynicism can be quickly trumped by gullibility.

There are three scenes in the film where I slowly brought my hand up to my mouth and became teary eyed because I was so frightened.

Dave White

When the image on screen splits in half and and two actors... are side-by-side competing to see who, under movie-hypnosis, can freak out the hardest and contort their face into horrifying mouth-shapes, it's really effective.

The Fourth Kind aims to do for alien abduction what Paranomal Activity did for hauntings. And to a large degree, it succeeds.

IF you let it draw you in with its factual approach, The Fourth Kind will creep you out more than Paranormal Activity.

In a land of recycled ideas and remakes, The Fourth Kind is a valiant original, no matter how deceptive it may ultimately be.

The Fourth Kind is legitimately scary enough to keep you in your seat. (Just don't Google the flick before you see it.)

You don't have to believe in far-fetched tales of mysterious beams of light and alien abductions to get caught up in The Fourth Kind.

It's a well crafted docu-drama-esque film that takes itself seriously, builds tension and scares the sh*t out of you through and through.

This is the same kind of put-on as the low-budget phenomenon Paranormal Activity. Except it's far more effective (at least at first).

Osunsanmi knows that everybody secretly wants to believe and when it comes to giving the people what they want, he does not disappoint.

The Fourth Kind was one of the scariest things I've seen in years. I'm going out to see it again, which tells you how much I care whether or not it's a hoax...I enjoyed every thrilling minute of it.

Olatunde Osunsnmi has created something incredibly original that can be debated and discussed endlessly regardless of whether you accept everything in his film as real or faked or a little bit of both.
