dark_skiesReviews for this film from our members:

  • Steve Biodrowski @ Cinefantastique Online
    • Excerpt: Hits the same beats as every other horror film from Blumhouse Productions

    • Excerpt: You don’t have to be a cynic to declare that Dark Skies is nothing you haven’t seen before. Still, it demonstrates why so many movies dramatize extraterrestrials and unexplained phenomena, because when done right (as this mostly is), you find yourself intrigued and entertained.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: Dark Skies is not only about invading aliens whose psychology is so removed from ours as to make them totally unknowable, it was apparently written by them.
  • Simon Brew @ Den Of Geek
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Dire and unsettling, it’s ultimately disappointing.
  • Glenn Lovell @
    • Excerpt: a fairly blah blend of sci-fi speculation and the original “Amityville Horror.” When the jolts do come, they’re of the cheap (hand on invitingly exposed shoulder) variety. You can’t fault Stewart for attempting a more atmospheric, Ray Bradbury approach to a well-worn genre. Too bad he, like Mrs. Barrett during one of her fits, is slamming his head against a sliding door.

    • Excerpt: Dark Skies is the kind of cliché-ridden junk that has feels like it came straight form the assembly line.
