Low budget filmmaking is a hit-or-miss prospect anyway, but low budget horror seems to miss more often than it hits. Thankfully, films like The Signal still rise from the muck and mire to establish themselves as solid entries in our most loved genre.
Filmed on a shoestring budget in Atlanta, Georgia, The Signal debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007, followed by several other festival screenings before getting a small theatrical release in 2008 and a DVD/Blu-ray release later that year. Along the way it gathered a strong buzz riding on critical acclaim and fan love. And the best part is, it deserves the love.
