Could Dark Skies be the first really scary alien abduction movie in years?

We are way overdue for a scary alien abduction movie — especially after The Fourth Kind. And the first ever trailer for makes it look as though Dark Skies might just deliver the goods.

This is being directed by Scott Stewart of Priest and Legion fame — which is not super promising. But at the same time, the trailer does look genuinely spooky. And Blunhouse Productions, the company behind Sinister, is producing this movie, so there's that. Here's the synopsis:

The film is a psychological thriller about a suburban couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from skeptical friends and neighbors, the couple is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.

Dark Skies will be out on February 22nd.
