The Fourth Kind and The Conspiracy

This could be just meaningless rambles from the grave but everytime I believe someone has created a movie that could possibly be real, I can either A. find nothing on the movie but clips and/or actors and actresses or B. find none of the original characters.

Which most people would think HEY, that means it's just a regular movie.

And that's all fine and dandy but what if, like TRULY, it wasn't just a movie.

The aliens and the story plot in the Fourth Kind was pretty cool, not gonna lie. Gave me goosebumps alllll over.
And then I realized it was fake.

Then my dad showed me this movie called The Conspiracy.


Basic story line:


When two young filmmakers (played by Aaron Poole and Jim Gilbert) select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new movie, they have no idea the terrifying peril they will put themselves in. When the man disappears without a trace, the filmmakers begin an obsessive quest to uncover the truth that will lead them to an ancient and dangerous secret society. A meticulously researched thriller based on real conspiracy theories, THE CONSPIRACY blurs the line between fact and fiction, news and propaganda. The film was inspired by actual conspiracy theories, notably those surrounding the Bohemian Club and the Bilderberg Group, both secretive organizations closed to the public and made up of a who’s who of power players in international politics and business.



My point is though - if one these movies were TRUE and did come out for the general public audience, we would never know it. It would be so easy for them to edit the film, redistribute it, pay off a few actors and actresses and be done with it.

That's way easier than worrying about mass hysteria.

Right?

I just wonder how many videos are out there that are portrayed as fake and are very real.
Kinda like the shootings at Sandy Hook elementary. We were told to believe it was real, and I am very very skeptical at this point.

It definitely has a touch of irony.

What do you guys think?

I watched the movie, the Fourth Kind. Good flick and the producers did a good job of making it fairly believable. The content and plot was so incrdedible that I didn't believe it though. ...but I did look it up after viewing to make sure.

Seems that there's a trend these days to produce "mockumentaries" and pass them off as non-fiction... mermaids... megalodons... and on the Discovery channel no less.

I don't like the trend, personally. I don't think that networks whose primary content is educational should be broadcasting those types of shows.... but it's a free market. Let the viewer beware..

I think that your assertion might be acurate though. Movies and TV shows seem to be prepairing us for some revelation about long held secrets... aliens... previous civilizations.. or whatever.

You might find it interesting to look into a concept known as "synchromysticism"...


A Synchronicity is a coincidence with meaning which is usually far less likely to occur naturally than typical coincidences. An observance of synchronicity is often coupled with a recent moment of personal enlightenment or great insight. A shift in consciousness of perceived reality will usually determine ones ability to see an increased number of synchronicities.

Examples of synchromystic occurances can be found in all types of media.. Lisa Simpson holding up a comic book with the twin towers on the cover selling for $9 is one that I can think of off the top of my head.

These random symbols that occur all the time in pop culture seem to be prophetic but are unknown at the time until events they prophecy unfold.

I agree. I understand movies that have exorcisms, poltergeists, and demons in them. Our human culture has always enjoyed being scared. But sometimes I think they come out with movies like this to throw us off our guard. Like for all the people on the planet that believe in aliens. If the gov't came out and suddenly said everything you ever believed was true - you'd be skeptical, instantly.

It's interesting eh?

I added some stuff to my post above... it is interesting that trending topics seem to have underlying common symbolism. If you want to take a trip down the rabbit hole.. check out Steve's Youtube channel.

Sooo interesting. I believe that is super insane how we always sense things before they happen but are always unable to stop it from happening. Just like the Mothman Prophecies.

And I will definitely check it out!

I actually had a cameo role in The Conspiracy. Great flick! The filmmakers have been fans of the conspiracy genre and were trying to find a way to bring some of these 'typically-hidden' ideas to the mainstream consciousness. Obviously, the Tarsus Club was based off the Bohemian Club/Bilderbergs. Even in the film, the man researching Tarsus was Mark Tucker. Who investigated the Bilderberg group? Jim Tucker. Also, the Mithraic Expert in the movie (Roger Beck) really is the world authority on the subject.

The film premiered in Toronto (after the festivals, etc.) and the showing was extended an additional 2 weeks due to popularity. I believe it's available on iTunes right now and comes to Canada (Rogers Cable on Demand) shortly. Should also be released on DVD down the road.

Your dad turned you onto this flick? Good job papa bear!

Oh wow thats crazy cool! Have to say I'm kinda jealous of you
Lol And it did seem to have some people in there that fit the person they were playing so that made kinda sense now that you mention it!

And yep
he's the one that turned me over to the conspiracy side. It's all gotta start somewhere


And so do you know if that movie even hit the theaters? It seems like it went straight online or elsewhere...

Thanks for the info!
