4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely dark and realistic 21 Aug 2013
By Elleppi
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The great thing about this movie is that nothing really huge happens, until the end, yet it really unsettles you, because of its slow and progressively dark pace and because of its style, which makes you feel and live not just the surface of the events, but also the feelings of the characters.
It's like they took Paranormal activity, with its exhausting expectations for something that can happen anytime but does not until the end, and made it less amateurish and more cinematographic, resulting in something stronger and deeper because it seems to be less merely observational.
So basically it's a good movie, yet it could have been a masterpiece if it didn't reveal what it's about (aliens) at least for the first half (it would have been "funny" if it kept the mystery behind those extraordinary facts making you guess if it was about ghost instead of aliens, at least for a while).

3.0 out of 5 stars Enter Sandman. 21 Jun 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
People think of aliens as these beings invading our planet in some great cataclysm, destroying monuments, stealing our natural resources.

Dark Skies is written and directed by Scott Stewart. It stars Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton, Dakota Goyo, Kaden Rockett and J.K. Simmons. Music is by Joseph Bishara and cinematography by David Boyd.

Two possibilities exist... Either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. - Arthur C. Clarke

Movies involving alien visitations are notoriously tricky things to execute, there's a very thin line between cerebral willingness and crummy construction. Dark Skies unsurprisingly is another in a long line of sci-fi/horror movies that divides the respective genre followers.

Plot finds the Barrett family home suddenly succumbing to mysterious phenomena, suicidal birds, time lapses, poltergeist activity, nightmares and body markings et al...

It's a film that most definitely didn't deliver the spook fest that the (mixed) marketing campaign suggested, while it unfortunately comes off as a collage of well known genre titles of recent pasts. Add to this some less than great acting from the adult leads, the complete waste of J.K. Simmons in a very promising role, and unoriginality of concepts, then it's not hard to see why it has been the victim of venom in some quarters.

However, Scott Stewart is not guilty of taking the easy route to genre cinema as per production. There's no over reliance on CGI, or for big booms and crashes to startle in the name of cheap thrills, in fact the scare scenes are well placed and well timed. He also proves to be a very good purveyor of slow burn atmospherics, itself something that can alienate the more boisterous and excitable genre fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'IS ANYONE THERE ? 30 Aug 2013
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Strange things begin to happen around the 'Barrett' home firstly at night,
there is no logical explanation.
The incidents become more frequent and more intense as time elapses reaching
levels that make the family believe they are being threatened.............
intimidating experience.
A tense and chilling movie..........the film puts me in mind of movies such
as 'Signs' and 'Poltergeist'
Ok....not a classic, however notably superior to many of the chiller's I've
seen recently, and does have........The Chill Factor .
( the universe is a mighty big place which is still growing, many-many Galaxy's
within, I myself believe we'd be a tad nave to believe we are alone )

3.0 out of 5 stars Ghostly,but done before! 16 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some times i wander why the Americans use children in their films..so a P.G. for this one ..quite spooky,but yeah 'I could of written it myself' syndrome. Well it's okay,but don't expect anything original,especially now from 'James Wan'. It's all been done before. Maybe give this a miss,there HAS to be something new! An "ALIEN" that does not look at all HUMAN! No Teeth and no head! Maybe some sort of dirge. I shall get writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars thought provoking and chilling 17 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The fact that i already knew from reading some other reviews here that this film was more science fiction based than super-natural did put me off a tad initially, but after watching this i gotta admit i found myself on edge throughout and not alot of films scare me, or chill me but this one did.....the story is surprisingly plausible and unfolds at just the right pace to capture and keep attention and you find yourself really caring for the main characters of the film.....the ending obviously leaves the doors open for a follow up film so don't expect a foregone conclusion or happy ending.....but do expect a good 93 mins of gripping, edge of your seat entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars HELPS WEED OUT THE LUNATICS 22 April 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The story opens showing us a stereotypical suburban neighborhood. The focus shifts to one family. Daniel (Josh Hamilton) is out of work. He can't pay the mortgage but has money for all kinds of video equipment. His wife Lacy (Keri Russell) is a real estate salesperson, and perhaps too honest for her own good. They have two sons, Jesse (Dakota Goyo) who is discovering girls and pot and young Sammy (Kadan Rockett).

The story builds slow, creating character as it goes along, with each incident becoming more puzzling and troubling. Sammy reports of seeing the Sandman, claiming he is responsible for the odd occurrences. About an hour into the film, the events are explained in case you didn't figure it out by the opening Arthur C. Clarke quote.

This film is well done. I enjoyed it. This is must see for those who believe in the Grays. I would rate it somewhere in between rent to own.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Teen/tween drug use. Minor groping. Some sex talk, i.e. "going downtown"
