Darkening Sky is an independent sci-fi thriller film from 2010, directed and produced by Victor Bornia. The story follows the life of a brilliant yet troubled astrophysicist named Eric (Rider Strong), who is recruited by the government to investigate a mysterious phenomenon that could have catastrophic consequences for the planet. Eric is a loner who has been haunted by his traumatic past since childhood. He is obsessed with finding evidence of extraterrestrial life and has built a powerful telescope that can detect signals from deep space. When he intercepts a strange radio signal from a distant planet, he believes he has finally discovered proof of alien existence.

However, his excitement quickly turns to fear when he realizes that the signal is a warning of an impending invasion that could destroy all life on Earth. Eric's worst fears are confirmed when the sky suddenly darkens, and a series of massive alien ships emerge from the clouds and begin attacking major cities around the world.

Eric is forced to team up with his former colleague and love interest, Dara (Danielle Keaton), who works for the government and is tasked with stopping the alien invasion. Together, they must use all their knowledge and resources to fight back against the aliens and save humanity from extinction.

One of the most intriguing aspects of Darkening Sky is the way it blends elements of classic sci-fi with modern conspiracy theories and political themes. The film raises questions about the role of government in scientific research, the implications of advanced technology on society, and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Another interesting aspect of the film is the character development of Eric, who is portrayed as a complex and flawed protagonist. We see glimpses of his traumatic past through a series of flashbacks, which explain his obsession with aliens and his difficulty in forming relationships with others.

Overall, Darkening Sky is a suspenseful and thought-provoking indie flick that offers a fresh take on the alien invasion genre. The film boasts some impressive special effects and solid performances from the cast, particularly Rider Strong, who delivers a convincing portrayal of a troubled genius on the brink of a breakthrough.

Darkening Sky is a 2011 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
