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).
`Dark Skies' (despite being named after a failed TV show/X-files clone in the nineties about an alien invasion) is about... well, it's actually about aliens. It's like the film-makers have taken the typical `horror film template' and, instead of having a regular family harassed by ghosts/monsters/whatever, they've had them harassed by aliens.
During the X-files, Scully once - cynically - said, "The alien abduction culture is now so prevalent in our society that you can ask anyone to imagine what it would be like and they would come up with the same story." What we have in Dark Skies is basically your typical alien abduction story. Yes, alien abduction stories have taken a back seat in recent years (basically since the X-files ended), but obviously the producers have felt that a suitable enough amount of time has elapsed and people might have forgotten how many there were in the nineties.
If you like horror (and possibly science-fiction) and have never seen an alien abduction story, you may well find this pretty different and scary. The aliens are creepy, the characters well-acted and the film overall quite enjoyable. Therefore, it probably deserves 4 or 5 stars (depending on how generous you're feeling).
However, I've watched the X-files. I've seen this done better on a weekly basis. I felt that Dark Skies was nothing I had seen a hundred times. It used the clichés of having the kids being targets first and their parents not believing them and fighting over what was real and what wasn't. The police then show up, but are basically useless.Read more ›
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.............
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 naïve to believe we are alone )
However, much like ‘Insidious’ (until the last half hour or so, anyway) and the superior ‘Sinister’ the pace and tension are superbly managed as the aforementioned goings-on escalate. The kids, in particular, are excellent; it’s nice to see a young American kid without a speech impediment (apart from being American, obviously) and all of the performances are credible.
It’s all very silly and a bit formulaic, of course, but entertaining nonetheless with plenty of splendid jumps, a different take on the old strange goings-on theme and an original ending. While not on the same level of abject terror as the Grudge (my benchmark scary movie), Dark Skies manages to do something slightly different in a completely oversaturated genre.

An intelligent movie. A slow build of suspense that some may find a little slow. Stick with it, this perceived slow pace involves us with character so the last third of the movie... Read morePublished 2 days ago by mark thomson
