Although I'm still not exactly certain what was going on, The Signal is the kind of smart sci-fi that is too often overlooked. Three friends on a road trip find themselves tracking a mysterious hacker only to find themselves part of an experiment - but figuring out whose running the show is just the beginning. This one will leave you guessing until the conclusion. Even though I think there are holes you can poke through this one, the concept is novel and the story is intriguing. Take a chance on this one.

But despite this small budget, this magnificent indie has some very successful moments with hallucinatory special effects.

Sometimes you watch a movie and you are wondering all the time what's actually going on. Eventually I had the same feeling as Nic (Brenton Thwaites) : groping in the dark, anxiously looking for the truth and feeling desperate. Nic was on its way to California, together with his girlfriend Haley (Olivia Co...
