Synopsis: The witness of this investigation contacted API regarding having dreams of aliens. The first dream, which occurred on 3 Aug 12, depicted aliens who were slender, gray, and had large black eyes. The second dream, which occurred on 18 Sep 12, the witness woke up but could not move.
Evidence Submitted: A sketch of the alien in the dream.
Initial Action: This UFO case was opened as a CE4, an abducted witness that suffers from psychological injuries.
Investigation and Findings: Several interviews with the witness revealed the witness watched the science fiction movie The Fourth Kind prior to having the nightmares. The movie purports to be based on actual events occurring in Nome, Alaska in 2000, in which psychologist Dr. Abigail Emily “Abbey” Tyler uses hypnosis to uncover memories from her patients of alien abduction. The witness indicted there were no nightmares regarding aliens prior to watching the movie and indicated the alien abduction nightmares were likely a result of the movie. At a final interview with the witness, it was agreed that the nightmares were more than likely a result from watching a movie about alien abductions.
