Jason Blum has single-handedly cornered the market in micro-budget, mainstream horror, thanks to his Blumhouse Production Company producing the likes of Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister. One of the movies he’s got incoming is Dark Skies, which takes the family in peril template and gives things an extra-terrestrial spin.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘From the producers of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister comes Dark Skies: a supernatural thriller that follows a young family living in the suburbs. As husband and wife Daniel and Lacey Barret witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lacey take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family.’
The film comes from Scott Stewart, who promised much but delivered far less with Legion and Priest. Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton and Dakota Goyo star. No UK release date has yet been set, but its reaches the US February 2013.
