Dark Skies DVD

Dark Skies stars Keri Russell (August Rush, The Americans) and Josh Hamilton (The Bourne Identity, J. Edgar) as a young couple with children living in the suburbs. As husband and wife, Daniel (Hamilton) and Lacy Barrett (Russell) witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barrett family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lucy take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family. Dark Skies co-stars Dakota Goyo (Rise of the Guardians), Kadan Rockett (The Fortune Theory) and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man franchise, Juno) as paranormal expert Edwin Pollard. Dark Skies was written and directed by Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion).

Dark Skies explores the dynamics of family, psychology and humanity as a household unites against an enigmatic menace. Is there still time to overwhelm this ominous force, or has "the invasion already happened?" DreadCentral.com's Heather Wixson called Dark Skies "a terrifying, mind-bending thriller." Avi Offer at NYC Movie Guru said "Sci-fi at its chilling best. A terrifying, suspenseful and jolting experience."

Dark Skies Blu-ray and DVD special features will include the feature commentary with Writer/Director Scott Stewart, Producer Jason Blum, Executive Producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Editor Peter Gvozdas as well as alternate and deleted scenes from the film.

Dark Skies was released February 22nd, 2013 and stars Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton, Dakota Goyo, Kadan Rockett, J.K. Simmons, L.J. Benet, Rich Hutchman, Myndy Crist. The film is directed by Scott Stewart.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Well, not as much exaggeration as learning a few things about why things are the way they are. But I'd rather focus my writing at the moment somewhere else.

    Overall, I get the hate

    @bawnian-dexeus -- Why 3 years worth? Exaggeration, or being specific? Ah, all right.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Oh, I have 3 years worth, but I don't got the brain power. Focusing it on 5 reviews between tonight and Monday

    @mr-k -- The only thing I don't agree with is your sentiment on Zero Dark Thirty; it was a good movie, and is only (if at all) partially overrated. That being said, I think films are getting worse as time goes on. Music and television shows sure the hell are, without a doubt.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Like I said on my Texas Chainsaw review, audiences now love rehashed crap rather than new and interesting ideas on movies. Why did Paradise Lost got cancelled? Because people were complaining on how crap it's gonna be when the movie WASN'T EVEN OUT YET AND WAS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT and no studio in Hollywood were interested on funding this project. Seriously, I'm getting sick of this new trend in movies where original films with unique ideas get no attention while either rehashed crap or overrated Oscar bait movies like ZDT gets all the praise.

    @mr-k -- I know, right? Movies like that are making loads of money, while actually decent films aren't getting any attention. What gives?

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Yeah, I'm REALLY trying to forget that Texas Chainsaw 3D exists in my mind. God, why audience? Why did you made this movie successful?!?!

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Ah, well, least you were entertained.

    @thedude-abides -- Thanks, man. I'm seeing it tomorrow, actually. You know me, man; I see every movie out there.

    @bawnian-dexeus -- It was below-average, my friend. Can't say I wasn't entertained, though. Albeit, for all the wrong reasons.

    @mr-k -- Great comparisons, man. I thought it was better than "Scary Movie 5", though. Now, that was THE second worst movie of the year. Literally, right behind "Texas Chainsaw 3D". Besides that, we're in complete agreement.

    @mr-k And yet, Identify Thief is currently ranked #3 at the box office

  13. Mr.K

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Agreed, right on par with Movie 43, Scary Movie 5 and Identity Theft.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Thought you'd find it average

    Diggin' the avatar, @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx. I'm surprised you gave this one a watch... I guess working at a theater has its advantages, or, as in this case, its disadvantages, lol.

    Easily one of the worst pictures of 2013. I'll pass.
