Storyline

When an alien abduction nightmare is revealed to have been much more than a dream, a skeptical grad student studying the "modern mythology" of UFOs and ETs finds himself confronting an impossible reality involving shape-shifting extraterrestrials, implanted objects, organ harvesting and humans possessed by a malevolent alien presence unlike anything he has ever heard about. All while dealing with a growing suspicion that he is somehow the center of the aliens' plan. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Eric Rainer: We're all story tellers, every one of us. It's another part of our nature, to explain things, find meaning. Look at a cloud, see a face. Show us a series of random images, and a pattern will emerge, a story. Give us a tangle of dots, and we'll find the straight lines connecting them. It's hard-wired. Instinctive. And like all instincts, it originated as a means for survival. The ability to identify relationships and to detect patterns operates independent of conscious thought. Free from the ...

Not Too Awful for a Low Budget Movie
26 November 2012 | by (Grand Junction, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I've seen movie with worse production, but The Darkening Sky does have a decidedly low budget feel to it. Eric Rainer is a student who enjoys studying UFOs and people who claim to have been abducted but does not believe in it himself. When his girlfriend disappears he meets Beth (played by the super hot Danielle Keaton)who's boyfriend recently also disappeared.

There are some minor spooky parts with a little bit of unexpected events, but overall the movie is predictable and doesn't really bring anything new to the table in this genre.Fans of alien abduction type movies will probably enjoy it regardless.
