The movie promises fireworks--and it delivers.

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.

It could be a test case for copyright law.

Expectations of originality soon cloud over, leading towards the kind of quick ending at 97 minutes which kills any sign of blue sky thinking.

It's never uninteresting.
April 8, 2013
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".

A baffling bore.
April 4, 2013
Zero points for originality, but interestingly messy at the same time.

There are some good ideas here, just not enough frights.
April 4, 2013
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.

Dark Skies is a good story, well told and one that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
April 4, 2013
A psychological thriller aiming to avoid the straitjacket of formula.

Time and again, Stewart squanders the opportunity to do anything remotely interesting or worthwhile ...
April 3, 2013
By parading out every tired trope from the sci-fi and horror genres, Dark Skies is unintentional self-parody, and quite dreadful indeed.
April 3, 2013
Dark Skies is a watchable supernatural thriller with a handful of effectively creepy moments, but it's let down by a clichd script, a lack of imagination and a soporific lead performance from Keri Russell.
April 3, 2013
Dark Skies sustains tension by grounding most of the family's torment in reality.
April 3, 2013
Somehow this mishmash of borrowed ideas all comes together to create an unexpectedly solid genre movie.
April 3, 2013
A protracted and tedious build up leads to a mildly unnerving pay-off in this largely uninspired horror movie.
