Sci Fi not horror

Save this one for redbox, but even then, most people could say it is still a waste of money. The story was too original, just another family being haunted. At least they threw in the alien twist, but this is definetly not a horror movie. I only jumped once the entire movie, and the rest of the time I was staring at the screen wanting to be scared. So if you are looking for a sci fi with a few scares in it, then that would be dark skies.

I enjoyed the movie, excellent effects - definately spooky. The ending confused me though - the ending was too abrupt and I heard other people in the audience go, huh? Other than that - good movie.

I loved this movie. I wasn't excited at the beginning to watch something about aliens thinking that it wouldn't be a 'scary movie' but then it touched on so many emotions. The actors were so real, I totally saw them as a family going through this horrible nightmare. The father was really annoying at the beginning and his face bugged me with all the close ups and his tired face. I guess he did play the 'bitter husband not getting any' really well. But I didn't like the way they'd focus on him so much.. I was thinking this guys an **shole. I was happy he got the implant and not her.....(heeheehee) The way the camera moved and timing really sets a mood. It only scares you if you think it's possible for this to happen and I'm not a scientist but I'm not stupid to think it can't. The theatre was totally quiet once the credits started. This is totally not for kids and it's pg-13 but I wouldn't take sensitive 13 or 14 year old to it. Younger Teenagers talking about oral sex.

literally, you will continuously get goosebumps and chills all throughout this movie!!! excellent story, excellent connect the dots, awesome twists. all in all 9/10. why not a 10/10? bc tho i get that it wasnt going to be a happy ending, i don't get how they could just stand by and let it happen. watch and you will see. i also appreciate that there were no fake thrill build-ups that have become so common now-days in scary movies.

Decent film. The acting was so-so but the storyline kept my attention even though you could figure out the ending halfway through the movie. I give it a 6 out of 10.
