The acting and effects look pretty laughable. Way funnier than the new Scary Movie trailer at least. And the scene where she smashes her head against the sliding glass door, look horrendously fake. Not sure if it's a really bad practical effect or a really bad cgi effect. But it just looks bad.

I actually laughed when she was banging her head.

So did I. But I'm not sure that's the effect a scary movie should be eliciting.

They wouldn't write, film, and edit that not knowing it would cause laughs.

Heh. There's a lot of movies with laughable effects like this. Especially cheap horror movies.

Maybe it will be better than the trailer shows.
They showed this film for screen tests in a few places and it did well.
It would've been nice to see them fork out a little more money for better talent in my opinion.

Fair enough. I can't tell you how many times I've been invited to screenings of this. Passed on all. And that was before the head-banging trailer...

I saw the Dark Skies trailer at the movies for Silver Linings today and I bursted out laughing when Josh Hamilton's mouth was wide open.

I hope this is good. PG-13 horror films always look good in trailers and then they suck.

The last one I can think of that was really good was Disturbia and then probably Insidious (for most of the film anyways lol)

I was surprised when knowing this movie will be PG-13, since 2 previous movies directed by Scott Stewart are rated R

This is definitely the next Happening. An absolutely awful, but bizarelly hilarious, clusterf*** of a movie. Count me in!

Wow, two cringe moments in the first 5 seconds -- one is the phrase "get your butt home", which just sounds weird, and the second is when he says "that's what save buttons are for." I can imagine the studio heads now: "If we insert game references into this, kids'll love it! What's hot at the moment? Modern Warfare!"

Looks terrible, and I quite enjoyed Priest, so that's something.

Two in the first five seconds, and several more throughout!

"Honey.... Did you do this?"
"Three seperate migration patterns."
*bangs head against window*
"What....the hell.... is WRONG with you people"
*bizarre open mouth expression*

And of course, my personal favorite,

"These marks....appear to have been made....with a brand."

This does look terrible, but I think it will be great for unintentional laughs.

Yeah, PG-13 horror is very hit and miss and probably more miss. The following werent too bad and I even own some of them:

1) Insidious
2) The Uninvited
3) The Ring
4) The Grudge(i always thought it was OK at least)
5) Disturbia

Most are lousy. Lets give this Dark Skies a chance....
