  • The picture eventually collapses under the weight of its own gimmickry, but it's still an entertaining distraction for cerebral horror fans who want an appetizer before the B-horror feast that is "Diary of the Dead." show more

  • The Signal has its share of things to say about urban paranoia, road rage, addiction - whether to sex, drugs or, more dangerously, consumerism. But it stands apart from other pictures of the same ilk by using its apocalypse as a backdrop to a bitter-sweet love story. show more

  • Unlike traditional zombie romps, these crazies don't stumble around mindlessly, noshing on human flesh. They look and act like normal people - until the second they go bonkers. show more

    Caught The Signal this weekend, and it was very cool! Definitely recommend it to any sci-fi and horror fans looking for something new

    I am a big sci-fi fan, but this movie was not worth the $$$$. Hint - See "JUMPER" instead!
