USA, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Full Moon Fever)

Director: David Bruckner, Jacob Gentry, Dan Bush


“Truly inspired independent filmmaking that will stalk viewers from every dark corner while examining the surprising human madness lying deep within.” - Sundance Film Festival Three filmmakers collaborate on three separate ‘transmissions' (i.e. parts) in this clever blend of blood and guts and psychological satire about a mysterious signal that takes over every electronic device in a city wreaking psychological pandemonium. This insidious signal turns its victims into homicidal maniacs, which results in a gore factor set to high and a film that is “so f***king entertaining” ( it overcomes any restrictions of its low budget. “Borrowing heavily from the current trend in zombie comedy and apocalyptic horror but shifting it away from the usual undead norms, [The Signal] carves out a fresh angle in the crowded indie horror universe.” - Variety
