It's quite clever that the makers of Dark Skies have picked three overdone genres; Psychological horror, Alien horror and Haunted house horror and somehow make them feel fresh and original. It's 1 part Poltergeist to 2 parts Close Encounters with a sprinkle of Body-snatchers for ...

3 3/4's. Creepy. Eerie. Decent job with the spooky background music, too. For once, a decent ending, too. Bad endings ruin films for me...this one pulled off a good one.

When I first saw the trailer for "Dark Skies" I thought it looked interesting, but would end up being a bad movie. While it's not a great movie, it certainly isn't bad either. Keri Russell stars as your average married mother of 2, when Aliens start to do weird, harmful ...
