Dark Skies (2013)
Critic Consensus: Dark Skies writer director Scott Stewart has a solid cast, an interesting premise, and some admirable ambitions, but he can't figure out what to do with any of them, and the result is a dull, muddled effort that will bore all but the most devoted horror buffs.

News & Interviews for Dark Skies
Critic Reviews for Dark Skies
Time and again, Stewart squanders the opportunity to do anything remotely interesting or worthwhile ...
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.
Stewart has some lofty ambitions, some of which he almost fulfills.
Those elements are employed with consummate dexterity.
Audience Reviews for Dark Skies
An average horror movie that manages to build an effective mystery and tension better than anyone would expect, even if it doesn't offer anything original about abduction phenomenon that we haven't seen before in better works - say, The X-Files. Still, I find the ending satisfying.
Genuinely creepy at the end, though starts out quite lame and even dull.
This movies goes into the "I was pleasantly surprised" category. The trailer was a yawner and the apparent premise initially screamed "overdone!" A family is creeped out by a a bunch of weird, unexplainable things happening in their suburban home. While this movie is not original as a whole, there are surprisingly original and creepy scenes to entertain even the most jaded horror fan. While at first it feels like a "made-for-TV" movie, the performances start growing on you and as you finally get an idea of what is really going on, you're hooked. Compared to Director Scott Stewart's previous outings, "Legion" and "Priest," this is the best of the bunch, and frankly, the best of the most recent suburban, lamely titled fright-flicks (like "Possession").

|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."|
