The Signal (2007) Synopsis:

A mysterious signal starts to diffuse everywhere on TV, radio, etc. turning people into emotionless killers.

The Signal Review:

The Signal is a very unusual movie. It is composed of three parts that articulate around the same backbone story of a mysterious signal that turns people into mad killers. Each part is directed and written by a different director. They are pasted differently, which is a bit odd at first, but are arranged together cleverly to make, in the end, a very good film!

The key of this movie is its very unusual concept. People infected by the signal become partially mad but also remain partially rational, so they can talk and have a conversation. For this reason, you never know who is infected and who isn’t. Everyone seems to be mad to some extent anyway, leading to some very absurd scenes (in a great way!). It will take you some time to understand what is really going on, but I found this aspect of the movie captivating.

The film also cleverly mixes an element of comedy and gore horror to finally render a very bizarre result. The way each segment follows the exact path of one of the characters is interesting. At first, I wasn’t really happy with the way the movie alternates two serious segments (first and last) with a very absurd second part…I thought it dragged me off the atmosphere to put me into a different film for 30 min…and then back to the first one. Yet, looking back at it, it is a very interesting experience. In any case, The Signal is interesting, off the beaten-track film that brings a fresh note to the overcrowded zombie genre. Definitely worth watching
