      [A] cagey low-budget horror flick.

      Full Review | Dec 17, 2008

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

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Feb 29, 2008

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      An outright horror film that nonetheless veers on occasion into surreal black comedy, The Signal takes Marshall McLuhan's famous statement 'the medium is the message' to extremes not explored since David Cronenberg's Videodrome in 1983.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Feb 22, 2008

      None of the rabbit holes in The Signal go that deep. But you do leave persuaded that you've discovered some talented people.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      A movie that explores the common ground between visceral horror and sketch comedy, and finds plenty of it.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      The Signal is electrifying, deliciously mad and twisted filmmaking. It's certainly not for everyone, but chances are it will inspire many.

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Feb 22, 2008

      A slasher fest that references such predecessors as George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead and Pulse, a 2001 chiller by Japan's talented Kiyoshi Kurosawa, while still remaining original.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      Ultimately, The Signal doesn't rewrite the rules of horror, the way those masters did. But its filmmakers do provide a creepy, bloody good show.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Feb 22, 2008

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      A startlingly original, smart indie film that so effortlessly mixes high-caliber gore, suspense and shocking violence with vaudevillian hilarity, it's clearly animated by the spirit of the classic Re-Animator films.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Feb 22, 2008

      It is the wildly chaotic and loony middle section where The Signal truly achieves a level of out-of-control B-movie brilliance.

      For many fans of the genre, the success of the first act and the ambition of the entire concept will be more than enough to make them fans of The Signal.

      The Signal is a well-oiled example of that oxymoronic Tarantino phenomenon: the arty grindhouse picture.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Feb 21, 2008

      In a movie about perception, misperception and the ramifications of misunderstanding, it's a bit ironic that the directors can't get out of one another's way.

      Full Review | Feb 21, 2008

      This Look Ma, no hands! And no head either! horror film makes a Mixmaster stew out of Poltergeist, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Re-Animator, They Came From Within, and Shaun of the Dead.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Feb 20, 2008

      This uneven but impressive shot-on-digital shocker earns a marker in the mausoleum of apocalyptic horror -- a genre that's proving (un)surprisingly durable in the new century.
