This is the first trailer for a mind-bendingly awesome sci-fi indie film called The Signal. I saw this movie up at Sundance, and it was one of my favorite films at the festival this year. This is a movie I know a lot of you are going to really like. The movie was written and directed by William Eubank, and it stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp, Laurence Fishburne, Lin Shaye, Robert Longstreet, and Jeffrey Grover. Here's a brief synopsis:
Three college students on a road trip across the Southwest experience a detour: the tracking of a computer genius who has already hacked into MIT and exposed security faults. The trio find themselves drawn to an eerily isolated area. Suddenly everything goes dark. When one of the students, Nic (Brenton Thwaites of "The Giver" and "Maleficent"), regains consciousness, he is in a waking nightmare.
Here's an excerpt from the review I wrote for it:
The film had plenty of fun twists and turns to keep the audience guessing about what was really going on. I had my theories while watching the movie, some of which were right. But, I didn't realize the level to where they would take it. I was impressed by what this movie delivered. It had drama, action, comedy, and really cool sci-fi elements. They did some fantastic and surprising stuff with the special effects as well. There's a lot of work and love that was put into this movie and it sure paid off.
You can read my full review of the film here. This is one of those movies that I'm excited to see again. I'll get that chance on June 13th when it's released in theaters!
