‘Dark Skies!’ Scary Film, Not Another SBY Anecdote

Hey-ho, a sunny Sunday, for the time being, so I offer you a quick review before going out to enjoy the day – though I’m toting the brolly wherever I go this rainy season.

After that ‘twilight zone’ tale from Indonesia’s President SBY https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2014/01/20/black-magic-clouds-more-dirty-aussie-tricks/  I wasn’t sure what this was going to be all about!


Some reviews call it a ‘supernatural’ scary movie, but I’d have classified it as science fiction.



Whatever you call it, it is very good, a film that had quite a few of the audience jumping in alarm as The Greys did their dirty work, strange creatures out to conduct experiments on us mere humans.

Extra-terrestrials, as it turns out, not ghosts at all, but in no way resembling the benign ET!

The story concerns a very ordinary American family targetted for no reason at all by these beings, and how they do their best to fight back.

  • All the cast perform their roles well, especially the elder son, played by Dakota Goyo, who is fortunate enough to get his first kiss from Annie Thurman, above, before the really horrid action gets going. Despite Annie’s photo, both these youngsters are, we’re told, 14 years of age. 

His mom, Keri Russell, is the real heroine, however, but I won’t tell you any more, in accordance with my policy of not ruining the suspense.
