The schlock-horror signal in which they've been bathed makes them believe that their grindhouse misogyny is the human condition.

...suffers from an increasingly uneven sensibility that ultimately becomes oppressive...

Esforçando-se ao máximo para alcançar o equilíbrio entre gore e paródia que transformou Uma Noite Alucinante em cult, esta bomba torna-se risível apenas pela incompetência generalizada com que foi realizada.

It's definitely an interesting premise and the three filmmakers almost pull it off, but the last ten minutes were a bit of a disappointment to me.

A bloody banquet of excessive, tasteless gore, but with an odd infusion of unsavory humor that never meshes with the horror. Think fatal car crash with a laugh track.

tone shifts awkwardly to a Shaun of the Dead-meets-Fido-style satirical commentary on domestic life

You, too, may be feeling violently angry by the time the movie ends. Did the writers-directors sprinkle their reels with the script's airwave-riding rage-ohol? Nope: The Signal just sucks.

It's all screwball fun until someone gets bugsprayed down the throat.

Has a certain gritty punch...but in the end it doesn't amount to much but the usual genre static.

It doesn't take long for the The Signal's promising beginning to fade into a haze that leaves the viewer exhausted and irritated.

This is basically a David Cronenberg concept dumbed down to a bunch of sadistic jokes, lacking any of the master's humane poignancy.

This three-part horror movie directed by a trio of Atlanta filmmakers is set during the collapse of Terminus, a fictional city whose citizens are being driven to rage.

A botched sci-fi story about the horror that erupts when televisions suddenly start emitting signals that turn folks into maniacs (maybe we should have gone with Toshiba).

You will definitely appreciate this film's ambition, if not its execution.

...a film-school genre exercise more than anything else; and being hyperbolically bloody in a very familiar way, it just isn't scary.

It hardly matters that The Signal is deeply flawed. This one has cult favorite stamped all over it.

I don't want to come down too hard on "The Signal" because while I don't think that it ultimately works in the end, it is far more ambitious in both concept and execution than the majority of contemporary American horror efforts

There is plenty of style but little substance in this sci-fi twist on torture porn.

The opening two reels of the picture are masterful. Then the rest of the film happens...this picture contains greatness, but only in the smallest amounts.

An inspired low-budget horror item with a rough and tumble guerilla filmmaking flair. What it lacks is a steady focal point to rattle the viewer's interest and emotions for an hour and a half.
