Check out the trailer for this movie. It looks awesome.

I'm both terrified and intrigued by aliens. recently I was reading an article about alien abductees and started clicking on all the links within it. One of them took me into a discussion about this movie, I think on Reddit. I had never heard of this movie before but everyone was talking about it with high praises both as an accurate representation of the alien abduction phenomenon and as being "omg so scary."
-_- I was extremely intrigued about what I had missed, only to discover that whatever I was missing this movie was missing too. Alien movies that feature no aliens are not scary. Alien abduction movies that feature no visible abductions OR anyone talking about them coherently aren't scary OR interesting. Movies that present themselves to the willingly ignorant public as being based on real stories are only scary in how irresponsible they are and the fact that people believe them. I might not mind as much if this movie didn't pretend aliens disguise themselves as owls. Don't go killing owls because you think they might be aliens folks.
The other dangled interpretation, where you choose your own adventure on deciding if you're Mulder or Scully, where there are multiple psychotic people in this town, leading to murder-suicides and never found missing kids is slightly more bearable, and significantly more terrifying. If you didn't have to deal with the oh video cameras stop working when things happen ordeal. Funny how that worked but audio was still perfectly recordable. Cause science.
I'm quite certain that the people I saw discussing this movie's merits were the same damn people that were convinced The Blair Witch Project was 100% real and super super scary despite the migraine inducing two hour camera shakes that were immediately followed by full credits including cast and crew.

Awesome thriller documentary. Just awesome. Pretty complex film but watch it a few times and you'll get everything

Not scary ever and the footage of the real woman the film was based off of was both laughable and cruel.

Annoying when you believe that the events and all the video tapes are real :S

Using a sheltered location, unsolved disappearances and documentarian format to unnerving effect, The Fourth Kind explores a fascinating -- and unsettling -- type of extraterrestrial encounter with beautiful scenery, thought-provoking chills, political connotation and plenty of fun with Greek mythology.

I never got into the movie. I understood that it was trying to pretend to be an amateur movie about a real event...but it never drew me in. +1 star for the Ancient Assyrian. +1/2 for the effort.

The Fourth Kind is a the kind of film that can only be enjoyed if you literally turn your brain off; don't believe any of it's ham fisted attempts at real world belief, and you'll find yourself enjoying it's horrifying moments truly shocking and enjoyable. But only if you put on blinders and ignore it's own message.

Go into this with an open mind, and you'll reap the rewards of a very chilling film.

Acting varies from passable to downright dreadful, the attempts to make us believe in these shenanigans are laughable and the overall result is shambolic. It is billed as a 'disturbing' experience by leading actress Milla Jovovich from the outset, yet the only thing that disturbed me was the 98 minutes of my life I'd never get back!

A chilling study of alien abduction, The Fourth Kind uses real-life disappearances as the basis for an unnerving sci-fi thriller whose beautiful scenery, documentary-style camerawork and playfulness with Greek mythology prove that giving audiences the chills has nothing to do with what you see, but what you don't.

One of the most insulting, misleading and false movie I've ever seen. I never liked the "base on a true story" thing that's in every found footage film, but The Fourth Kind pissed me off so much that I couldn't finish it, because the movie sloppily adverse itself as a "real life story" of these strange encounters that never happened. The dialogue is laughable, the acting was unconvincing and everything in this movie failed.

Scared the crap out of me. Was doing some research. Came across this movie as a result. A lot of the footage is real. Frightening stuff.

This film drives on your own imagination. You need to truly believe in the story told so that you can relate to the victims and experience the thrills yourself. This can sometimes be hard because of poor script, or acting, but other than that a decent horror film especially if you get fooled by its supposedly true background story.

Pretty darn scary if the idea of alien abduction terrifies you like it does me! The split screen thing was irritating and there were a ton of holes in the story...but Mia Jovavich and really all of the actors did a superb job, well the actual actors not the people playing real people! Lots of scary nightmare fodder in here as well.
