What you'd expect, I suppose...
I love end-of-the-world movies. As far as I know, this movie was not released in the theaters, and after watching it, well, even before watching it, you kinda should already know what you're in for. It starts off pretty good, gets a little slow in the middle, but the end isnt so bad. It is done in a very 28 Days Later style: rough, choppy, hand-held camera angles, alternative music with and without lyrics throughout, a love story, a crazy bunch of people. Some of the acting was pretty bad, but it's passable through a sitting. Some of the gore you just gotta see. Overall, not a bad movie, but definitely no 28 Days Later, which is my favorite Zombie movie of all time, cause it's as real as it gets. The Signal? Eh. It's alright.

Disturbing horror film about a weird signal that has disrupted all phone, TV and radio service. It changes your mind so that you become rationally homicidal. There is a rhyme and a reason to what you do, it just involves well thought out murder. There is something about the film that gets under your skin since its operating on its own twisted logic. Its a bleak tale that left me feeling very uneasy. To be honest its not perfect, some of the performances are weak and the narrative isn't all there (I can't explain it with having to explain a great deal) but it still manages to have an affect on you. Clearly its geared to be seen on TV where the early video nasty (or is this something happening somewhere else?) segues into a weird pattern that will make you wonder if your TV has fritzed out. It hasn't but the world in the film has. One of the more unique horror films of late. Worth a look if you like horror films.Read full review
