This is a good story, told believably, and as a film I found it quite suspenseful and most entertaining. Those paranormal fans who follow this film's producers seem to have been expecting something in keeping with their former demonically themed screenplays (the “play” part being a bit of a stretch, I know). The fact they detoured from that comfort zone demonstrates the versatility they hope to present to their already established, yet definitely NOT built-in, audience. If you're looking for a suspenseful film experience outside the mainstream and without religious or spiritual implications, sans ghoulishness and deviant gore, this is just the movie for you. See it. You won't be disappointed. Use common sense though. Leave the kids at home..

Loved it! Its a good depiction of me when I was 13 or 14. Its as much a family trying to hold things together during rough times as it is a scary show. Good script and good acting. Annie Thurman and Dakota Goyo are the next generation of stars!
Generally for me, if the critics say a movie is average and the fans like it, I go. If the fans don't like it and the critics love it, I usually stay home or pick another. Alot of the time, Critics take themselves too seriously! It's the entertainment industry after all.

Dark Skies was so-so. I enjoyed it; but, its hard to believe a family would stay in a house for a whole series of strange happenings for so long. I would've checked into the nearest hotel by the second occurrence.

It was a good movie. If you want to wait until it's available digitally then you won't be upset. It felt like a twist on the "Poltergeist" movie, but not in an offensive way.
