Dark Skies ending explained 

Dark Skies kicks off with Daniel Barrett living an ordinary life with his family of four. The protagonist cannot support his family due to shifting jobs which lead to the mother of the family working her nights and days to lend financial support. While they seem to be an ordinary couple and nothing happens in their monotonous life, they're subjected to a number of incidents which spook them out. 

Daniel's younger son named Sammy starts complaining that he sees a Boogeyman at night. The events start turning stranger when various birds come crashing into their house horrifically and unknown symbols are found etched onto the skin of both the kids'  body.
