"THE FOURTH KIND"- A New UFO Movie Coming Soon
'The Fourth Kind' movie trailer. In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. 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. This encounter has been the most difficult to document...until now.
Structured unlike any film before it, The Fourth Kind is a provocative thriller set in modern-day Nome, Alaska, where—mysteriously since the 1960s—a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year. Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered.
Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.
Using never-before-seen archival footage that is integrated into the film, The Fourth Kind exposes the terrified revelations of multiple witnesses. Their accounts of being visited by alien figures all share disturbingly identical details, the validity of which is investigated throughout the film.

Alcohol blamed in Nome mystery
UNSOLVED DEATHS: FBI sees no serial killer, cites drinking, exposure.

A string of disappearances and mysterious deaths of Native villagers visiting Nome was not the work of a serial killer, an FBI analysis of the cases has concluded.
An FBI study of 24 missing persons and suspicious death cases assembled by Nome police said excessive alcohol consumption and a harsh winter climate were common ties in many of the cases. In nine of the cases, where no bodies were ever found, state and local investigators said they will continue to search for new leads.
The FBI conclusions were summarized at a news conference Thursday morning in Nome called by the Native nonprofit Kawerak Inc., which has been working with law enforcement and other Nome-area Native and civic groups on the disappearances.
A list of victims' names in 20 cases was released by local officials last year in an effort to solicit information from the public. Nome police said they plan to talk with families of the victims in the coming weeks before releasing an updated list of names and an explanation of what they think happened.
Of the 24 cases, three are being left alone at the request of families, two had already been prosecuted criminally, and one was a snowmachine accident, said Nome Police Chief Craig Moates. In nine of the cases, a re-examination of available evidence produced "definitive outcomes, " Moates said. He said alcohol was a common factor in those cases.
Though Moates offered no details Thursday, some of the dead are known to have died of exposure or from falling off a jetty into the cold water of the Snake River. Questions had been raised about the possibility of muggers preying on drunks. As concern spread in Seward Peninsula villages, the unsolved cases became a top priority two years ago for the region's Native leaders, including the Norton Sound Health Corp. and the Bering Straits Native Corp.
"No evidence exists to support the conclusion that a serial killer has been targeting Native people in Nome, " Moates said Thursday, summarizing the FBI conclusions. The FBI cited the lack of trauma shown on recovered bodies, the four-decades-plus time span of the cases, and the absence of a common suspect, Moates said. More>>
Editor's Note: "Lack of trauma shown on recovered bodies, the four-decades-plus time span of the cases, and the absence of a common suspect." I believe it is possible that some may have been abducted. what better way to hide the fact, that people have been taken against their will, then cover it up? As if that is new. We will probably never know for sure.
As for the movie, I'll reserve judgment until I see it.
