Eerie Terrestrial ID Viral Website for Alien Movie 'Dark Skies' Launches

Once you have been chosen you belong to them. Man, I hate aliens. Dimension Films has launched an eerie viral website for their alien abduction thriller Dark Skies. We featured the trailer a few months ago and it looks like it might be scary as hell, but in the meantime they're creepy us out this way. The viral site allows Facebook users to create a "Terrestrial ID" with Body Scan, Location, Social Colonization, Abduction Status and more. You can share your own "impending abduction" and, of course, enter to win an iPad too. Because what better way to remove all mystery than haphazardly mix marketing tactics. If you need the ID, dive in.
From the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes Dark Skies: a supernatural thriller that follows a young family living in the suburbs. As husband and wife Daniel (Hamilton) and Lacey Barret (Russell) witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel & Lacey take matters into their own hands to solve this dark mystery.
Dark Skies is written & directed by Scott Charles Stewart, former visual effects producer for The Orphanage who directed both Priest and Legion last year. Dimension Films is releasing on February 22nd next year.

While we are waiting, I wonder if Fire in the Sky (1993) is still scary and worth a re-visit?

Always good for a good creep out. Have you ever caught the real Travis sitting in the church during the town meeting?
