Dark Skies

 (2013)

Dark Skies Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Like many loving parents, Lacy and Daniel Barrett have retreated to quiet suburban streets to raise their children. They are more or less content until a series of strange occurrences at night unsettle them. Their son Jesse is particularly disturbed by events which include a confluence of migrating birds smashing into the house. With the police and other authority figures apparently unable to help, Lacy and Daniel are gradually drawn to a supernatural interpretation of events. Unfortunately, as an expert on the paranormal informs them, there may not be much they can do to resist the spirits. Even worse, when Lacy and Daniel begin to feel themselves losing control of their own actions, it raises the possibility that the spirits aren't merely within the house; they may be within them...

Dark Skies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dark Skies brightens up video screens with a fantastic high definition presentation. The picture fluctuates between daytime and nighttime footage, both displayed to excellent results. The film opens on a bright suburban street that's almost like a moving digital postcard of modern America. Color balance is flawless; the red, white, and blue of American flags, green lawns, baby blue paint jobs on houses, and all the other splashes of color look amazing. The image is also crisp and neatly defined, with precision details near and far, evident on concrete and even blades of grass. It sets a great tone for the remainder of the picture to come. Well-lit scenes reveal intricate facial textures and clothing lines and seams to an extent that rivals the finest HD video productions. Even at nighttime, details are incredible and the image remains sharp and focused even when there's not much to see beyond shadows and outlines. Black levels are ultra-reliable, and flesh tones are well balanced. The HD video sheen is evident but not distracting. Slight banding appears in some places, but rarely to a distractible level. That's really the only blemish on an otherwise excellent Blu-ray transfer from Anchor Bay.


Dark Skies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dark Skies features a very strong and well balanced DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The movie begins with a classic, bass-heavy foreboding low that calls attention to the film's deeply seeded terror before switching to a more cheerful exterior that will only last less than an act. The transition sees some gentle but positive and nicely immersive suburban ambience that effortlessly transforms the listening area into a modern neighborhood. There aren't many extremely heavy sound effects until the end of the film; one of the few of the major ones along the way is an ear-piercing ringing of a security alarm that effortlessly pulses through the stage and creates a real sense of instant panic. The end minutes deliver the heaviest content. Bass can get a little rattly at the very bottom, but it's tremendously effective at pushing the listener into the terror, getting the blood flowing, the spine tingling, the hair raising. The low end expertly grips the audience and doesn't relent. Dialogue is firm and accurate through the center. This isn't an always-active track, but when it's on it's very effective both technically and in the way it absorbs its audience into terror.
