Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Fourth Kind...

The film opens with a scene of passion (depicting kissing and bare shoulders) involving a married couple. It is quickly followed by the portrayal of a brutal stabbing. During therapy sessions, patients experience different levels of emotional and physical distress, which includes writhing and screaming while under hypnosis. Other shrieks and moans are heard during encounters with aliens, along with the portrayal of violent bodily contortions. A character is threatened with a spinning, drill-like device. Police video records the murder/suicide of a family. Officers are shown with drawn guns. Family tensions between grieving adults and children are shown. Other suicide and missing person incidents are discussed. A photo of a man who committed suicide is seen. The script contains numerous profanities, terms of Deity and some mild sexual innuendo.
