Who is Dr. Abigail Tyler of The Fourth Kind
Here's the truth behind the movie The Fourth Kind and Dr. Abigail Tyler. The movie starts out very convincingly telling you what you are about to see is all true and real. In the movie "The Fourth Kind," actress Milla Jovovich portrays Dr. Abigail Tyler of Nome, Alaska, a psychiatrist who stumbles upon an "alien abduction" link between her patients, during clinical hypnotherapy sessions.
The movie is loosely based on the actual story of 24 villagers in Nome Alaska who's mysterious deaths and disappearances occured between 1960 and 2004. The FBI did investigate and eventually some cases were attributed to serial killings. In other cases alcohol was a big factor in the victims disappearances. While the alien abduction theory has not been ruled out in the real stories of the missing or dead persons, it is not one that is widely believed by many Alaskans.
The movie uses the image of an owl many times. The owl is the manifestation of the aliens on the normal plane of vision. Perhaps the filmmakers chose this creature because they have excellent vision and are percieved to be wise creatures. Plus they look very spooky at night in the setting of this movie.
Alcohol abuse and suicide are extremely high in Alaska as compared to other states. Alaska's population is roughly 680,000 making them 47 in 50 states. Alaska is the number on largest state with the most spread out population. With thousands of square miles of forest and mountains in Alaska, making travel between many cities and villages only possible by plane or boat, solving murder mysteries would be a very difficult challenge. Of course on can not be sure aliens are not at work in this remote part of the world.
If there really did exist a Dr. Abigail Tyler in the real life events, we don't know it for sure. The Fourth Kind was a decent movie taking only 6.8 stars out of 10 on www.imbd.com. Personally seeing the Fourth Kind was entertaining but one time is enough for watching The Fourth Kind.
