Dark Skies (A PopEntertainment.com Movie Review)


Dark Skies


Dark Skies

“Found footage” horror films have become so commonplace that filmmakers don’t even really bother to pretend that they are found footage anymore.  It used to be that this kind of low-budget scare fest would claim to be real film, use completely unknown stars, skip opening credits and rely on shaky hand-held cameras to make it all seem like it really happened – see The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield or any one of dozens of those film’s imitators.

Dark Skies is not the first of this type of film to use recognizable stars as the leads and steady professional camerawork. 

So the film has to make the audience get over the slight shock that Felicity and The Americans star Keri Russell is being haunted by nasty little buggers from outer space.

But otherwise, Scott Stewart’s Dark Skies could be just another one of these multitude of horror stories with a bit of a sci-fi twist.  But whether it is a witch, a demon, a ghost or a little green man lurking in the background, these films follow a pretty rigid formula and Dark Skies does not change things up that much.
