A weird transmission overruns every cell phone, radio and TV, turning people into murderers. With the city in anarchy, the streets filled with death and chaos, a young man named Ben wants to find his girlfriend, Mya, and escape to safety. Only one problem: She lives on the other side of town... with her husband. Who most likely won't want his wife running off with her lover while civilization is collapsing around them.
The Signal is so simple in terms of its principle that the film just thrust us into the midst of its epidemic of mass lunacy with no explanation ever offered as to the cause of the signal. Yet on a deeper level, the film is also a spoof of our technology-based world, a comment on how (as cliché as this may be) our electronic devices have enormous control over us. Think about how everyone shoots up to see if a ringing cell phone is theirs, or how people organize their schedules around certain TV shows, or how talk-radio listeners can be worked up into foamy frenzy by Rush Limbaugh and Jerry Springer. The signal in "The Signal" is simply an amplification of the hold on our lives that technology already has. Perhaps I'm being a bit analytical... but I call ‘em how I see ‘em!
It was an OK flick. Check it out if you're bored.
