Excellent Popcorn Movie

Dark Skies has everything... Good tight storyline, a couple of good jumps, good acting, I don't feel the movie ever dragged at any point, and the great thing is the movie did not lean on scares or jumps to MAKE the movie, it actually told a story. Some will like this and some will not, some will go in wanting an edge of your seat constant scare me ride the whole time, that won't happen, even though there are some tense moments. What was even better, the ending surprised me a bit. I like that. This will not win any awards but it is really fun and enjoyable entertainment. If you go in with the attitude of just wanting to see a great science fiction movie about a family having "Alien" type problem, you will be happy. It was much better than allot of the crap that has been out there lately I will for certain give it that. Cheers!

This was truly an original take on the alien abduction genre. I felt like I was watching a puzzle come together from beginning to end, if you'r into horror and science fiction, this is a must see!

Genuinely scary!

I had rather low expectations of this movie but it was surprisingly good! I can't say it was highly original or even unpredictable, but the performances were excellent and the fear generated in the audience was created using real suspense rather than through the use of special effects. In fact, a big part of what made this film so successful is the feeling of horror it generated without benefit of special effects. There were hardly any. Yet I found it much scarier than many horror films that were long on effects but short on chills.

I went to see Dark Skies expecting a paranormal horror story, not expecting an alien encouinter movie, but it was very well received by me and my 13 year old son. It was worth the trip.

Dark Skies

Slow building movie plot with teenage boob grabbing getting emphasis along with a questionable father figure background. Tension and good suspense builds quickly in last half of movie. Good plot ending twist is gripping and is only explained in the last few moments of the film. This movie could be too scary & traumatic for small children.
