Dark Skies is sort of supernatural, but it's really more super natural....[it's] about the fragility of family, a muted meditation on how precious it is.
Dark Skies is a bore that even the most forgiving genre buffs will find difficult to defend or endure.
Dark Skies unveils its horror slowly, creating a suspenseful ride that feels satisfying even though we're traveling a familiar road.
Dark Skies is a slow-burn paranormal horror film that spends way too much time on setup and not enough on reveal.
...the film, for the most part, contains many elements that have been employed in other similarly-themed endeavors...
yet another example of horror that can't make up its mind, and as a result, can't satisfy
What body-snatches this beyond being another haunted-home flick is the attention to family breakdown rather than another scare around the next dark corner. It's more about eerieness and creepiness than outlandish confrontations and gory shocks.
Expectations of originality soon cloud over, leading towards the kind of quick ending at 97 minutes which kills any sign of blue sky thinking.
A moderately effective supernatural tale, an allegory for our anxious times in which a suburban American family appears to be targeted by some malign force that is, as we used to say, "not of this world".
An old-fashioned scary movie; a sci-fi horror that is a workmanlike piece of film-making, with some effective shocks, cheerfully borrowing from other sources, most obviously Spielberg.
If the dour home-invasion chiller Dark Skies needs one thing, it's aliens with more novel ideas.
Dark Skies is a good story, well told and one that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
By parading out every tired trope from the sci-fi and horror genres, Dark Skies is unintentional self-parody, and quite dreadful indeed.
- Edwin Pollard: People think of these beings invading our planet as some great cataclysm, but it's not like that at all. The invasion already happened. You cannot escape them. Sooner or later, when they're ready, they will take your family.
- Daniel Barrett: Leave my son alone!
