slow burner but it burns brightest at the end - The Signal review by TJ

Spoiler Alert

Original ideas in scifi few and far between... this is a film that rewards your patience a very clever film that drips feeds to the dramatic finale. Can't tell you more as it would spoil the journey.

Still burnt intoy memory a week later.

good film - The Signal review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I didn't know what to expect with this film or what it was about. Found it kept me interested all the way through. I was not expecting the ending at all.

Intriguing sci-fi - The Signal review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert

Three computer nerds may have had contact with aliens and be infected with alien DNA. Things may not be as they seem, especially with their bodies. Dr Laurence Fishburne investigates in a protective suit in a secure facility. It’s mysterious and fascinating. All our trapped hero Brenton Thwaites wants to do is escape, but is that safe? What new powers might he possess? It gets compellingly weirder as it progresses.

Thrilling in parts, disturbing in parts, this is a much more thoughtful film than the average dumb blockbuster. It’s imaginatively shot in the American west, with great effects for a small budget, and is a great calling card for writer/director William Eubank. One caveat: on the DVD commentary the director and his two co-writers come across as irritating gaming nerds who think everything is brilliant, man. Amazingly, they’ve crafted an engrossing movie.
