Netflix Just Added Alien Flick Dark Skies And It's Seriously Creeping Out Viewers
Netflix has added creepy alien flick Dark Skies to its viewing options, and people are already saying it's thoroughly putting the s***s up them. That's about all you can ask of a scary movie, isn't it?
Dark Skies, which was released back in 2013, tells the story of Lacy (played by Keri Russell) and Daniel Barrett (Josh Hamilton) who live with their two young sons who live a happy little life together in the suburbs.
However, things take a dark twist when the family believe an alien is entering their house at night and terrorising their children. Don't you just hate it when that happens?
Lacy and Daniel have a tough time trying to convince their friends and neighbours and call on alien-expert Edwin Pollard (played by Oscar-winning actor J.K. Simmons) for help.
The spooky film has impressed viewers, with many flocking to social media to recommend it to others. One person said: "If y'all haven't already, I recommend y'all check out Dark Skies on Netflix, one of my favourite scary movies."
A second posted: "Good evening y'all I just watched Dark Skies on Netflix, which actually scared me because the fear is derived from hopelessness and the characters' total lack of control over what's happening to them which really resonates with the terrible world we live in right now - I recommend."

A third was left too scared to sleep, posting: "Dark Skies on Netflix is so horrifying that I couldn't sleep for weeks afterwards. Highly recommend it."
Others are calling for a sequel, with one person writing: "I'm so happy Netflix put Dark Skies back on. They need to make a second one just as good."
Producer Jason Blum - founder of Blumhouse Productions, which is behind just about every successful horror film made in recent years - urged his fans to give it a watch, posting on Twitter: "Underrated @Blumhouse film Dark Skies now on @Netflix. Got terrible release back 2013.
"Hoping many will watch now. @robotproof wrung a lot of pathos & all time great scare out of deceptively simple scenario. And JK Simmons shot 1 day - weeks later he was on our short Whiplash."
Dark Skies is streaming on Netflix right now - enjoy.
