Didn't start out so well, but it gets somewhat better as it goes along.

I found DARK SKIES to be surprising frightening, and a terrific movie. A science fiction blend with horror, mixes well and thus the result is this thriller about a suburban family threatened with a possible alien abduction, and their race against time to solve the mystery. before it is too late. While the element of the jump scare is as I've put it overplayed to the hilt, here it's used to great and creepy effectiveness, and is what keeps the film moving.

Nothing new in this movie as far as special effects that we haven’t seen 1000 times before. The movie was very cheaply made cheaply acted also in other words, it was a dumb movie.

Rated 1/10.

Although Dark Skies starts out fairly tame it becomes very intense by the end. Arthur C. Clarke is quoted as saying: "Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying." One does not have to believe in aliens (more commonly known as grays) to be fascinated by this movie. There are clues throughout the movie that are not obvious. Watch the bonus features after the movie and see the clues as well as the alternate ending. Dark Skies is an excellent movie well worth watching.

It's not a total scary alien horror movie, very good acting. The movie had it's "jump moments" I would recommend it.

It has it's scary moments but I was expecting so much more. Many scenes seem strange and out of place like they were just looking to fill up time. Would not watch again.

If your looking for scary keep on looking. This whole movie is just laughable. Ok acting by the Kids but the rest of the movie stunk. Its a 2 hour movie where your yelling "I can't belive your so stupid" the whole time at the tv. It was a good idea but badly executed and directed. Skip it and find something better to do with your time!

Great movie, not your average alien scary movie. Great acting!

Odd behavior for a pair of educated parents when faced with paranormal circumstances and life threatening adversity to their boys ... the parents took too long to face the "unreality" and shockingly decided to fight the unknown by themselves with a single shotgun! The alternate ending was not much different or improvement, both unsatisfying in mho.
