The movie "The 4th Kind" had me thinking a lot, as did "Fire In The Sky" because they were supposedly based on true stories regarding some form of alien abductions right? Well, I was half-way wrong. "Fire In The Sky" may have been based on a book (haven't looked for that one yet) and some actually true occurances,................. but after looking for the the book that inspired "The 4th Kind," because I was really interested in the subject, I found out that it was never based on a book or serious investigative account at all.
Everything in "The 4th Kind" was scripted for that paticular movie. No abductions match the movie accounts, there was no psychiatrist (Dr. so and so) who went nutz, and some Alaskan agency actually sued the makers of "The 4th Kind," because nobody wanted to go to Nome Alaska for their tourist trips anymore.
So, I thought to myself, well maybe this was just a jaded blogger who stated these suppositions as facts but the more I looked, the info was the same. The whole basis of the movie "The 4th Kind" was a hoax and there was indeed a lawsuit over it that settled for only $20,000. Unfortunately, this is the first I've heard of this. Now I feel like an idiot.
