Trailer Premiere For Alien Abduction Horror ‘Dark Skies’

Dark Skies

In theaters February 22 from Dimension Films is Dark Skies, the alien abduction horror film starring Keri Russell, Daniel Barrett and Josh Hamilton. The trailer premiered today, and while the aliens stuff on “American Horror Story: Asylum” is definitely scarier, this looks like it has potential (or maybe I was tricked by the Aliens score at the end?). I’m intrigued by the family abuse angle, which hightens the story a bit past where a film like Fire in the Sky went (although that it was one, if not THE scariest alien abduction film ever made).

The supernatural thriller directed by Scott Charles Stewart “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.

    when I was 8 i saw fire in the sky and it freaking scared me so much I didn’t re-vist the movie till I was 26. And even then it scared me too not as much as I was 8 but the scene when he is hiding under the table will always stay with me. I also thought the fourth kind was freakin scary as hell too. We need more movies with aliens that are actually scary.

    this looks pretty good! there’s a couple of unintentionally funny moments in there (Keri bumping her head against the glass door for example) but overall it looks like a solid movie.

    more than any other horror movie critter, grey men are my fucking achilles heel. doesn’t matter how crap the movie is, they still scare the absolute piss outta me. SIGNS had me hyperventilating ferchrissake, and FIRE IN THE SKY? don’t even wanna talk about it.

    ehhhh. I’ll see but I’m definitely not gonna expect much.

    the chick bangin her head against the glass reminded me of the old lady from The Happening.

    I like the not in control of your own body angle. Also nice to see it looks like its not going to be one of those ‘it was all in your heads’ films….

    I haven’t seen a good alien abduction movie in a long time. Usually these kinds of films are pretty creepy to me gore and serial killers don’t bother me but something about being taken in the middle of the night by shadowy aliens just gets too me…idk I’m weird. I was probably 9 when Signs came out and although it’s not scary too me now that movie scared me witless when I was a kid and I actually enjoyed The Fourth Kind…I can’t think of any other good creepy alien movies atm but this one hopefully looks promising because the trailer is simply ok which leaves room for a good movie because a trailer that is too good always leaves me expecting a great movie and then the movie is nothing…I’ll love to watch this one.
