By now I guess most people are aware of the upcoming movie "The Fourth Kind", which is supposedly based on true accounts.

Apparently, there is a lot of disappearings in Nome, more than in many other places.

Is there a real psychologist, called Dr. Abigail Tyler? Are there any interesting cases from Nome?

Interestingly enough, the title is taken from Jacques Vallee's classification of close encounters, and as many probably know, Vallee is "opposed" to the theory of aliens from other planets...

To clarify, when movies say "based on real events" or some such, I am aware that they can be based on one sentence to a whole history, and that it is always unclear exactly what the "real events" are. That they pixled the face of the supposedly real psychologist is most likely another trick to make the movie more appealing. I'm not out to debate the movie, just what facts it is based on (if any).

If it's "based on true events" then it's most likely based to the same scale Texas Chainsaw Massacre was... The story had inspiration from the Ed Gein case.. everything about the movie however, was completely fictional.

It's a game these directors and writers play to get people to go see their movies.  The person writing them is "inspired" by a true event, and writes a completely fictional story, and they get to tag it as "based on true events"

I stopped paying attention to the whole "true events" thing a long time ago.. its usually BS...

I agree with this

The footage is false. Dr. Abbey is a fictional character. You can find the actress in IMDb. These incidents did not occur. It takes some research and digging... it is the same type of production as the Blair Witch Project. All Hollywood. Just for entertainment. Fake documentary. Sorry.

From Hazz's link:

Quote

So there you have it. There is no Dr. Abigail Tyler, there are no reported cases of UFO encounters in Nome, Alaska. The FBI did pay a visit to Nome, but only to conclude that its missing people were almost all due to alcohol-related incidents; the film crew, however, did not visit Nome as the production was shot in Bulgaria

It's just a movie...period.

I used to believe in the UFO. In one of those trip to Iran, I met a young enthusiastic astronomer in an exhibition. I asked her if she believed in the UFO. Then she answered me by quoting a verse of Holy Quran that Allah created Human being as a highest intelligent in the universe. Then she told me there would not be any more intelligent being than human being in the entire universe. Then all of my belief in the UFO shattered at once.
