Movie Reviews - The Signal
After watching The Signal I must say that it's a weird one. I'm giving it a marginally positive review and would say if you're a big horror fan to definitely see it. The story is about a TV broadcast which causes the people that watch it to turn into raging homicidal maniacs and then proceed to bash each other's skulls in with blunt objects and/or hack each other to pieces with sharp ones. The film is actually 3 short films with 3 different directors and each has its own feel, although the same characters are used throughout. There is a lot of horror and suspense, and then you throw in a little black comedy and mix it up with some soap opera domestic dispute and this is what you get. Not great but certainly enjoyable enough.
