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.

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 Cooke) and …
