Alien Electicity Comes Alive in Shocking 'The Darkest Hour' Concept Art

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.

Official synopsis:

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.

Red Square
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.

Subway Attack
An alien “seeker” emits a controlled lightning bolt to reel in its prey.

Seeker Bolt
A close-up of the alien seeker bolt.

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.

Trolley Attack
A seeker alien attacks Olivia Thirlby & Emile Hirsch on a runaway trolley train.

Alien POV
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.

Faraday Cat
Sergei’s cat is also outfitted with a mini-Faraday cage.

The survivors meet up with a group of tough Russian soldiers on horseback, led by Matvei.

A submarine in the heart of Moscow may provide temporary sanctuary from the vicious aliens.

Alien Tower
An alien tower, whose function is central to the mystery of the aliens’ motivation for taking over our planet.

Release date is December 23, 2011 (USA)
Director: Chris Gorak
Stars: Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby and Max Minghella
Storyboard artist: Jonathan Gesinski
Concept artists are listed as Imery Watson and Stas Lebedev who I can't find anywhere.
