The Signal

I finally finished this movie. Not because it wasn't any good, but because life and a wife who hates horror movies intervened. Great little flick though the vague ending hurts what is overall a strong movie with intense scenes of horror and some of the funniest stuff I've seen in awhile as well. For those unfamiliar with the flick, it's about a couple named Mya and Ben who are having an affair. Not usually a problem, however on this night after they separate, a signal is broadcast that drives the city of Terminus insane and turning everyone into killers, including Mya's husband, Lewis. This film is told in three parts, each leading into the next and wrapping up fairly nicely at the end. The middle scene is probably the funniest whilst the first and third contain the majority of the horror. Will Mya and Ben meet up and escape the town? You'll have to find out. It's worth checking out for the budget (500k) and the time it was shot in (13 days). Very cool film.

What's that? Take off that mask, Mya.

Are you listening to me?
