The Forth Kind

The Fourth Kind is a science fiction/thriller/horror film directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, and starring Milla Jovovich. The filmmakers claimed the movie was a documentary reenactment set in Nome, Alaska. Universal Studios has since admitted that the "actual events" and back-story were part of a guerilla marketing campaign. The movie concerns alien abductions. The title is derived from J. Allen Hynek's classification of close encounters with aliens, in which the fourth kind denotes an alien abduction.

The film's trailer states that the story is based on "actual case studies," but did not specify any cases. As a result, much speculation has arisen regarding the search for documented evidence from the actual cases and whether Dr. Abigail Tyler is a real person or a fictional character for use in an internet viral marketing campaign.
