From the producer of "Paranormal Activity," "Insidious," and "Sinister" comes "Dark Skies": a supernatural thriller that 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.

2013 Guide Analysis: "Not to be confused with that mid-90's TV series that tried to rip-off the success of "The X-Files," this low-budget supernatural thriller comes from "Legion" and "Priest" director Scott Stewart. The story deals with a couple trying to save their family from an apparent alien presence who prays on their children. The tone is very much akin to the likes of "Insidious" and "Sinister," albeit with the demons replaced by shadowy corporeal beings from another world. It's fairly generic material, but the trailer does have a decent atmosphere and the presence of Keri Russell immediately gives it more cred than it probably deserves."
