If Jaws made people afraid of the beach, and Psycho made people afraid of showers, then The Darkest Hour could make people afraid of light bulbs.
The Darkest Hour is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects.
The descriptions and images below are from Collider. I didn't see any reason to change it 'cause they're awesome.
The iconic Red Square in Moscow is the scene of desolation in the post-alien invasion world of THE DARKEST HOUR.
The aliens in THE DARKEST HOUR are unlike any depicted on screen. Composed of lethal wave energy, they have the ability to shred apart human life.
The aliens in THE DARKEST HOUR are virtually invisible. They are detected only by the surrounding electrical systems they activate, making travel by day particularly dangerous.
Life forms are illuminated by the faint electrical impulses in the body’s nervous system. This is a pre-vis look at how the aliens see humans.
Sergei’s Faraday Cage
The group of survivors meet up with an eccentric Russian scientist, who has outfitted his apartment as a giant Faraday cage, providing protection from the aliens.
A submarine in the heart of Moscow may provide temporary sanctuary from the vicious aliens.
