The trailer for Dark Skies looks like Insidious with aliens instead of demons

Nov. 21, 2012by: Alex Maidy

With a glut of demon and haunted house movies out there, producers are always looking for a way to capitalize on a genre and try and keep it fresh. Blumhouse Productions, who have brought us SINISTER, INSIDIOUS, and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, are keeping the haunted house asthetic, but changing the source of the torment.

DARK SKIES, as you can probably guess from the title, has aliens as the antagonists. I rolled my eyes before watching the trailer, expecting it to be god awful. Instead, it looks like an effectively scary movie. The conceit that the characters are possessed by the aliens gives an extra creep factor to the entire film. I won't expect this to be a great movie, but it looks better than crap like THE FOURTH KIND.

Plot: From the producers of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister comes Dark Skies: a supernatural thriller that follows a young family living in the suburbs. As husband and wife Daniel and Lacey Barret witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lacey take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family.

DARK SKIES stars Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton. It was written and directed by Scott Stewart (PRIEST, LEGION). It is set to invade theaters on February 22, 2013.

Loved the concept behind that show. Alternative view of 20th century history that gradually caught up with the present day around the millennium - some of it was really well done.

eeeehh

The writer/director does not bode well for this. However I do have a weakness for alien flicks so lets see how the reviews turn out. And that last shot of the shadowy alien figure was pretty spooky.

Dark Skies was a script written back in the day that was being produced by Steven Spielberg before he split it into two different movies. E.T. and Poltergeist. Now it looks like the original script is finally being realized. The only clear difference I see is that it takes place in the suburbs instead of on a farm.

Um, this is not the 'Dark Skies' that 'E.T.' was spawned from. This is an original story written solely by Scott Charles Stewart, a filmmaker who would have been a kid when E.T. was released.

The fourth kind sucked. At the very least, Dark Skies should be better than that film,

I bet the alien watched Poltergeist and said to himself "Oh my god, I must stack random shit exactly like that!".
