When I first saw a teaser for 'The Signal' it struck me just as another B-shock fest -- all plot, no character, no theme, cheap thrills. The idea, a very Japanese sort of techno-horror, is that an audio signal played (with or without video) has the ability to turn us into homicidal maniacs. That's too easy -- you can see why I was skeptical. Well, maybe it's growing on me or maybe watching the trailers (over and over -- I don't know why I do that) has rewired my brain, but I'm starting to like the look of 'The Signal'. Above trailer is the best crafted of the bunch. Below is a copy of the signal in question.
Go ahead. Watch it. Over and over.
