It all boils down to this; this screenplay makes the story groundless; I don't know whether it was real, but my impression is simply "waste of time".

frantically suspenseful .

That was what it was trying to do, be a thrilling film, and I think it got that down very well.

The film starts quite slow until the point were it starts to build up some excitement.

A waste of time .

i enjoyed it very much!!

OK to watch when bored I suppose, when it comes onto TV and there's nothing else on, especially if your a UFO buff.

The acting is beyond pathetic, the story is so unbelievable you have to wonder if this in fact is based upon a true story or whether it's just a gimmick to make more money, the textbook horror-tricks are all being used, everything is as predictable as it can get, the characters are SO STUPID I sat there hoping they would all die so the movie could finish.

Maybe I'm just a dude that sees the glass half empty.

With this movie, gas must have been $8 because absolutely nothing happens.

--- A complete and utter waste of time.

Worst movie ever .

Otherwise, a total waste of time.

Night Skies plays out like a tighter more suspenseful version of Fire in the Sky.

So much for the complaints about the story being predictable.

"Night Skies" is equally divided between a chatty, boring, first half, and a somewhat intriguing second half.

I think if you are a fan of sci-fi or are interested in the UFO subject you will hands down find this an entertaining film.

Would the people watching "your story" think the events were "predictable?

What you are about to see may bore you somewhat, but please stick with us, because we do have some neat 118-dollar special effects in store for you in the grand finale, right after the uneventful dull first hour.

How snappy would your "lines" sound to an audience?

The story is a bit repetitive, we all have seen alien's movies with plastic monsters and a group of friends whose car breaks in the middle of the nothing...

Low budget, horrible dialog, horrible plot, horrible acting, and extreme boredom combine forces with this one.

Under-rated, absolutely worth watching, and scary.

Other than that, the film was frantically suspenseful.

And then it goes for the cliché cheep horror shock ending when the guy thought to be dead jumps up.

Every scary-wannabe element in it is such a cliché, we laughed during the whole movie - you just know what will happen.

You are on the edge of your seat the entire time, it is very scary.

How many people do you meet everyday that are really engaging and you want to know more about them?

If this is a true story, I would expect it to be mundane, with ordinary conversation instead of scintillating conversation full of artful badinage.

maybe on a slow night...

Entertaining Abduction movie .

It's so boring, could listen to any insurance seminar for days with a big smile on my face.

Uhh.. Don't Waste Your Time.

Until that happens, NS takes its sweet time, introducing the dull characters in annoyingly pointless detail, making sure we don't miss anything – including even every visit to the toilet.

don't waste your time .

If this is a true story, then the actors managed to be come off being ordinary and uninteresting characters, just like you might expect.

So don't waste your time or money to see this movie.

The plot seems drawn out from the beginning with a group of 20 somethings traveling in a motor-home.

Summary - a low-budget, clean-looking, cliché-ridden, movie-of-the-week style movie, with some good visual effects, which gets better during the last half and has an interesting final act.

Although this is pretty accurate, "Night Skies" lacks the goofy entertaining vibe of most of the "Friday the 13th" sequels.

Aliens were a bad idea for the "creature" or whatever you wanna call them; aliens wouldn't even want to waste their time doing half of the crap they do in this movie.

I'd rather spend $20 buying an empty DVD.

This movie did use some cliché techniques and was kind of predictable.
