Quote:I didn't care for it myself. Didn't seem like it did anything new or better than other similar PG13 ghost flicks. It just came off kinda cheesy and ineffective at creating tension for me.
I watched Dark Skies last night and thought that it was pretty well done. It's nice to see a movie that uses CG properly without trying to over do it for the climax which usually results in a loss of believability by revealing too much of the CG creation. As for alien flicks I think The Fourth Kind was scarier but this was def a solid entry and something worth watching. The real scare for me and the Mrs. actually came after the movie when I went up to check on the kids and my daughter was not in her bed. I checked our room, her brothers room, the guest room, closets, etc. and we were totally starting to flip out. Turns out she came downstairs and fell asleep behind the dining room table. We asked if she heard the movie and got scared and she said no, she was just scared of her room. Pretty freaky though after watching Dark Skies!
I'm heading to The Conjuring later this morning and will report back
