The Signal

Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne, Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke and Beau Knapp star in this mind-bending and suspenseful sci-fi thriller. Nic (Thwaites), his girlfriend Haley (Cooke) and his buddy Jonah (Knapp) take an unexpected detour from an idyllic cross-country road trip when they are contacted by a mysterious hacker who has gained entry into MIT’s secured network. But after a rendezvous in an eerily remote area goes awry, Nic wakes to a living nightmare in an isolation unit. Interrogated by Dr. Wallace Damon (Fishburne), Nic soon realizes that the only way to decipher the past… is to escape the present.

This one boasted an intriguing trailer that left you wondering just what the hell was going on…and unfortunately, it sounds like that level of confusion doesn’t let up much during the film itself. Still, our own Brent McKnight suggests that, while it isn’t for everybody, “it is a cool, stylish, film with a lot offer those of you willing to look.” (You can read his review here.) Sadly, this one isn’t on Netflix yet so you’ll have to chance a rental on Amazon or iTunes if you’re interested. If you like it, Netflix does have two other films by Signal co-writer William Eubank — the indie sci-fi flick Love and the thriller Crave.
