When we are talking about Paranormal activities, Legion or Priest, the fans might know what we are talking about here. Yes, the exquisite gothic background with the unexpected and enigmatic delegations. We are hinting at Dark Skies here, a movie that came on screen in 2013. This movie had received mixed comments from the viewers as some found it quite interesting while others just wanted more from it.
The Dark Skies is an American sci-fi that was initially released quite a way back in time compared to today. So, now Netflix has taken up the task of releasing the movie on its platform, and why shouldn’t we expect the viewership to go leaps and bounds. Until then, let’s see what we do in our article, which might help dig a little deeper into the movie.
What is Dark Skies Plot?
As we already know, it is a sci-fi movie with a tinge of “Poltergeist” vibes. The movie revolves around a Barret family, which consists of four members in it. The father is Daniel, who is currently unemployed, due to which the whole financial burden is to be beared by the mother, Lucy. Lucy is a real estate agent, so her job somehow keeps the family away from getting broke. Then they have two sons, and the elder one is named Jesse and the younger, Sammy.
In the beginning, the movie is like all other happy family movies, but as we move forward, the plot intensifies. The house seems to be haunted as many bizarre activities are happening in the house, like rearranging kitchen essentials. Besides that, the older son Sammy appears to be haunted by someone as he says he can see something he calls ‘The Sandman.’
What Else is There?
So they take the advice of Edwin Allard, who is an expert in this field. No sooner does he find out that ghosts rather than some extraterrestrial beings haunt the place. So the parents try their level best to get over the situation by fighting for their family until the very end. No sooner do they realize that the alien has planned something bigger than they could have ever imagined. The background, sound, and cinematography are all over great if we talk about the movie.
When will it Come on Netflix?
The movie premiered on Netflix in the year 2020 itself, and now there are even talks going on about the release of its sequel, which might take place somewhere near in the year 2022. The movie really requires another part as there is a cliffhanger which we come across while the film comes to an end, and this has been confirmed by director Scott Stewart. The cast includes Daniel Barrett (Josh Hamilton), Lacy (Keri Russell), elder son Jesse (Dakota Goyo), and the younger one, Sam (Kadan Rockett).
The movie ended up earning $27.8 million against a budget of $3.5 million, which was quite good. So it will be great if you choose the film if you are into sci-fi and aliens stuff.
