Trailer Blazer: 'The Signal'

Posted on

In the process of my Mondaily web trawl, I came across a link for The Signal, a movie I’d never heard of. Now, because I love all things Serenity (as well documented)—which revolved around, among other things, the broadcasting of a signal that contained government signals—I clicked through to see what it was all about.

And I found what looks like a smart, unsettling, low-budget reinvention of the zombie flick. (Yes, I know, there have been, like, 48 smart reinventions of the zombie flick in the past five years.) It reminds me of The Ring, with fewer creepy prepubescent girls in need of haircuts and tanning beds crawling out of TVs. The killing here is done by the people closest to you, the people you know and love. That’s pretty scary.

Check out the embedded trailer, after the jump. I’m officially intrigued; how about you?
