Just to set the record straight, 'Texas Chainsaw' is intended as a sequel to the 1970's original and I quite liked the way this was established at the start of the film (by means of a montage of clips). From then on though, the whole thing feels a bit forced and VERY silly.

If you try and forget comparing it to the original by taking 'Texas Chainsaw' on it's own merits you basically have the usual Hollywood fodder of good looking teenagers, bad decision making, plot holes a plenty and some gore. Some examples of the dumbness follow...

Having recently watched 'The Conjuring' some of the scares in 'Dark Skies' looked and 'BOOM'....sounded familiar! This aside I really enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone.

My personal 'rule number one' for any horror/sci-fi (this is a cross between the two) is that I have to care for the characters. We've all been there..."Oh just kill 'em will you"! The Barret family at the heart of 'Dark Skies' however, are very likable and a little deeper/more 'real' than most.
