Kinda dumb, they could have easily ginned up a fake newspaper for the fake stories. $20K is still a drop in the bucket for marketing costs. Everybody wins . . . except the people who bought the tickets.

There had been buzz about the authenticity of this "true" story for months. Most people long ago agreed it was a marketing tactic since the psychologist, her organization and some other details were quickly proved to not exist. I don't think this in anyway undermines the credibility of the journalists in this small Alaskan town; in fact, tourism might have increased due to this movie. In this day and age, one has to go the extra mile and question things. Just because someone says something is "true" doesn't make it so. In fact, I would EXPECT that not to be the case when it comes to film, especially one as entertainment-driven as this. The only thing that is factual is that the FBI did investigate a rash of missing persons in that region some years ago. They came to the conclusion that drinking, depression, and exposure formed a triad of disaster.
