RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Supernatural Thriller Dark Skies

Plus a handful of smaller releases.

by | May 28, 2013 | Comments

It’s a good thing there’s plenty in theaters for people to see right now, because there isn’t much coming out on home video this week. The only big release is a supernatural thriller from one of the people who brought you Paranormal Activity and Insidious. Then there are a handful of smaller releases that are, in fact, so small that you may not have heard of them. See below for this week’s ultra-short list.

Dark Skies


If you’ve had enough of ghostly possessions and spooky old houses, then perhaps you’d be more in the mood for something of an otherworldly nature. At least, that’s what the people behind Dark Skies were banking on. Unfortunately, most critics didn’t find the film so convincing. Lacey Barrett (Keri Russell) and her husband Daniel (Josh Hamilton) are a young couple raising two sons in a typical suburban community. When unexplained occurrences begin afflicting their family, Lacey discovers they may be explained by supernatural phenomena… of “the third kind,” so to speak. For what it’s worth, critics largely conceded that Dark Skies isn’t particularly terrible; it’s just a little tame and uninspired. It stands at 34% on the Tomatometer, so it probably won’t appeal to any but the most ardent (or desperate, perhaps) horror fans, but those who give it a shot might find a few worthy moments amidst all the familiar plot devices.

Also available this week:

  • The Criterion Collection’s release of Mike Leigh’s 1990 breakout film Life Is Sweet (100%) is available on DVD and Blu-ray.
  • The Loving Story (100%), a documentary about the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized interracial marriage in the US.
  • German war film Lore (93%), about a group of five siblings who must trek across the country after the end of World War II.
  • John Cusack espionage thriller The Numbers Station (30%).
