I’ve always felt that alien abduction movies can be extremely terrifying if done well, although I must admit, it’s been a few years since Fire in the Sky first scared the crap out of me. This particular genre of horror flick seems to have died along with The X-Files in the late ’90s and I’m not quite sure why. I guess we’ve been too busy worrying about zombie plagues and home invasions to concern ourselves with little green men as well.
At any rate, Olatunde Osunsanmi’s The Fourth Kind looks like it could bring back alien abductions in a big way, and personally I’m all for it. The movie stars Milla Jovovich as a psychotherapist who interviews abductees in Nome, Alaska. This is another one of these horror movies that vaguely claims to be based on a true story, although there doesn’t seem to be any strong evidence of that fact. Either way, I did think the trailer was pretty creepy. Osunsanmi previously directed a horror movie called WIthIN, and is supposedly a protege of Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces), who is also a producer on the flick. The Fourth Kind hits theatres on November 6th; check out the trailer after the jump.
