So what'd you think? I hope several of you had a chance to follow along this weekend with our ongoing movie club series here at Horror Squad. This week's entry was The Signal, a low-budget apocalyptic affair that may have slipped past many of you. I hope you took the time to check it out as it has a lot of good things going for it.
I had only seen The Signal once, about a year and a half ago and my memory of it had sadly faded, so I watched it again today so that I could be prepared to discuss it with you guys. Now I'm not usually a note-taker during films. During a screening of Enter the Void at SXSW, however, I noticed some things I wanted to make sure I remembered afterward and I found myself reaching for a piece of paper and making a few notes. When I put The Signal in this afternoon, Weinberg suggested that I take some notes while I watched. I thought it was a good idea so I grabbed a sheet of paper, which, to my surprise, I ended up filling with my thoughts on the film.
Note: What follows are my thoughts on The Signal, including the ending. It is meant to spark discussion among those who have seen the film. If you haven't seen the film, you should go watch it before you read on. Otherwise, be aware that there will be spoilers.
