On "Dark Skies"


From The Dispatch:
Unlike many of its ghostly brethren, "Dark Skies" is a genuinely creepy thriller that doesn't rely on cheap jump scares to frighten the audience. Director Scott Stewart builds a strong sense of suspense and dread, fraying the audience's nerves rather than merely jumping out and saying "boo!" That is something that is sorely missing in a lot of modern horror films, and while there are a few directors out there who are bucking the trend like Scott Derrickson ("Sinister") and Neil Marshall ("The Descent"), audiences are rarely won over by that kind of subtlety.
