Comments: Do you have the crazy?

Lotsa fun. I didn't know this was going to be a, not a comedy but a very funny movie. It's got blood and more blood, a decapitated talking head, dead bodies everywhere, and kill scenes with realistic and unnerving sound effects that will make you wince.

At times AJ Brown seemed to be channeling Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame. He even kind of looked like him in certain moments. The Signal has a surreal, over-the-top sensibility like Evil Dead, but it's humor is not derived from that. This film is witty and subtle; the humor more cerebral than gut funny. Scott Poythress turns in a wonderfully comedic performance as the 'third wheel'.

Summary: A science fiction horror film told in three parts in which electronic devices broadcast only a mysterious transmission, turning people crazy. The film is broken up into three "transmissions" each of which had different directors during shooting. Each part manifests one of the following genre: visceral thriller, black comedy, and mystery-love story.
