No really, sleep tight. Rented it On Demand, fell asleep. Tried to watch it next morning, added a few more hours of sleep. Needless to say, I'm well rested to watch an actual good movie.

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.

I can't possibly imagine seeing this movie again. I'll give the movie some credit in that it gave me a few good scares and unless they are planning on making a sequel, the ending really disappointed me. If you are into aliens and the great beyond kind of stuff, then I suggest going to see this flick but if not, don't waste your time.

Dark Skies reminded me of a darker version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. J.K. Simmons was very believable as the expert on alien abduction. He was an intricate part of piecing the entire story together. I’m of the opinion that less is more when it comes to movies like this, so the fact that you never really saw “the greys” up close in any kind of detail, made it scarier for the audience. Keri Russell does a great job as the mom trying to hold her family together as their world is turned upside down. She’s come a long way since Felicity. I must say, I enjoyed the twist at the end but I did see it coming.

Nothing earth-shattering that hasn't been done before. However, you wont be disappointed. On a side note...If your child tells you that he sees aliens or weird things start happening around the house. Just assume he's telling the truth from the get-go and start dealing with it instead of putzing around hoping the really odd occurrences just go away. Does it ever really work out?
