The Reviews of Dark Skies: From a parental standpoint there are some truly terrifying events that occur in the new alien thriller DARK SKIES. The film begins following the very basic “haunted house” flick clichés including strange things happening in the night and children having scary dreams. Thankfully, unlike most of the recent onslaught of PG-13 rated horror films, this Scott Stewart directed feature keeps the spooky happenings surprisingly grounded – especially considering this is the director of the over-the-top action flicks LEGION and PRIEST. Even at the very end he mostly avoids the insanely goofy CGI finale that is a usual factor in these types of films. Of course there are moments when the reveal of the film’s nightmarish creatures are far from scary, although they are kept at a minimum.
The one thing that really works here is the casting of Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton, Dakota Goyo and young Kadan Rockett as the Barrett family. Husband and wife Daniel and Lacy are trying desperately to keep their family together. Daniel has currently been laid off and is searching for a job; meanwhile Lacy brings in some income as a realtor. Soon they find that bizarre things are happening in their household and the children Jesse (Goyo) and Sam (Rockett) are feeling the stress, it works unexpectedly well. This is a likable family that has fallen upon hard times and I found myself caring about their situation. Things get especially tense when the threat of child services looms over them after a particularly unsettling scene at a pool party – even if it is a tad bit melodramatic. Generally when films like this begin with the focus on the family it stays there until the dark forces prevail. Soon you find the story drowning in special effects and a few too many boo scares. DARK SKIES certainly gives into a few too many of these moments and it occasionally gives the audience reason to chuckle as opposed to scream. When we do get a glimpse of the mysterious forces at work, it sort of feels like one of these reenactments on “real life UFO stories” that they feature on the SyFy Network.
