The tagline for “The Signal” is, “Do you have the crazy?” Um, no, but I’m willing to give it a shot if it means getting a decent zombie movie for once. At least, that’s what this trailer for “The Signal” is promising. Then again, the trailer consists of random images thrown at super speed at the audience, and you can’t really make anything out, so if total confusion equals great, then this is the greatest movie trailer of all time. Personally I wish they would just make a decent trailer instead of going for some gimmick. But hey, that’s zombie movies for ya.
A horror film told in three parts from three perspectives, in which a mysterious transmission which invades every cell phone, radio and TV, turning people into killers.
The premise actually sounds a lot like Stephen King’s novel “Cell”, which is itself soon to be made into a movie. In the book, a cellphone transmission turns people into zombies. Do you smell a lawsuit?
Well hopefully the lawsuit won’t come until I get a chance to see “The Signal”. It’s written and directed by three separate guys (for three separate stories), David Bruckner, Dan Bush, and Jacob Gentry.
Check out the official site here (although I don’t really commend it; it’s just as
nutty and wacky as the trailer).
