The Signal didn’t get rave reviews and has gone somewhat unnoticed. It’s a little rough in spots and drags on a bit here and there, but for the most part it moves along pretty seamlessly.
The movie starts with a few college guys moving their female friend across the country. The two guys are IT guys and they’re being harassed by a hacker before and during the trip. So naturally they decided to track down the hackers location — and that’s where it all goes south.
They find an old abandoned house with no windows, etc. But there’s a rack of servers in the basement. Things get progressively weirder from there. All of the events from the point where they enter the old house in the desert get progressively stranger, but everything only feels just slightly off, and the mood becomes increasingly uneasy.
It’s not a life-changing modern masterpiece but it’s absolutely worth a watch. I’d like to say more, but this is definitely a movie that’ll be more fun if you just watch the movie. Do yourself a favor and don’t look into it anymore than you already have. The less you know, the better. Enjoy the strange journey — it’s worth it.
