The Fourth Kind (2009)

We saw two new movies in the cinemas this week, but today I’m writing about what I just saw on cable this afternoon: The Fourth Kind, by director Olatunde Osunsanmi. Milla Jovovich played the starring role.

I was terrified. I was torn between believing the ‘real life recordings’ and thinking that they were too dramatic and too bizarre to be real. Real or not, it scared the shit out of me. Good thing I was watching in the afternoon, not too sunny though, but bright enough.

Who hasn’t experienced lying awake too early in the morning, and feeling some kind of fear or dread? I know I have. There were times when I refused to look outside the window for fear of seeing something looking right back at me. But I’d never thought of aliens; ghosts and engkanto, yes, but not aliens.

Tonight I will sleep alone in my bed. Hopefully I don’t suddenly wake up disoriented, or I might just scream.
