There has been a subtle trend in the past few years -- low-budget science fiction that doesn't actually look low-budget... or at least overcomes its limitations.

A good example: "The Signal," a hauntingly creepy little sci-fi movie that builds up lots of tension to some genuinely shocking twists. While the slender budget is pretty obvious for much of the movie (hello, white corridors and rooms!), it finishes with a heartrending, action-packed finale, rich with metaphor and the clash between emotion and rational thought.

A mysterious hacker known as Nomad is sending MIT students Nick (Brenton Thwaites) and Jonah (Beau Knapp) bizarre emails. So the two decide that when they accompany Nick's girlfriend Haley (Olivia Cooke) to her new college in California, they will track down and confront Nomad. Nick is a little distracted, though -- he is crippled by muscular dystrophy, and believes that Haley would be better off without him.

But then Nick wakes up in a mysterious underground facility, run by strange people in Hazmat suits. Dr. William Damon (Laurence Fishburne) tells Nick that he had contact with an extraterrestrial creature -- Haley is in a coma, Jonah is supposedly dead, and Nick may be going insane.

But Nick begins to figure out that not everything around him is what it seems -- especially when he learns that bizarre modifications have been made to his body. His only chance is to grab the unconscious Haley and find a way out of the bizarre desert that they are lost in. But they have little idea of what is really going on -- or who Damon really is.

Really enjoyed this - a strange one but a good one which admittedly won't be to everyone's taste but it certainly was to mine.

The set up is fairly routine - three students (Nic, Jonah and Haley) head off to an abandoned shack in the Nevada desert in search of a expert hacker. The exact reasons why aren't overly important at this stage but things will become clear(er). Then things get weird, as they're prone to do in abandoned shacks in the middle of the night. Nic later awakes in a strange lab/hospital where he meets Dr Damon played by Laurence Fishburne via a typically restrained performance of subtle menace. Then things rapidly get even weirder.

It's one of those films that seems to pride itself on keeping you in the dark until the latter stages. For large parts I didn't have a clue what was going on to be honest but was always intrigued and entertained. Films this mysterious and wilfully obscure largely stand and fall on their later reveals and resolution and this one worked for me, it's ties together pretty nicely.

It's probably better not to know much more on the way in other than its a strange but winning sci-fi thriller with a Twilight Zone sort of vibe. On a side note - director (and co-writer) William Eubank brings some skill and imaginative touches to proceedings, particularly in the final reel and if you enjoy this one then check out his previous effort "Love", another curious, entertaining slice of sci-fi.

Format: Blu-ray
The Signal features Brenton Thwaites as Nick - a former college-team runner forced into retirement by muscular dystrophy. He is travelling across America with his best buddy Jonah (Beau Knapp - Super 8) to drop his girlfriend Haley (Olivia Cooke) in California. Along the way, the MIT undergraduates are pestered by the persistent & skilled hacker NOMAD. They manage to track down his address to a rural location in Nevada and decide - as it's along the way - to drop by and pay him a surprise visit, unaware of what is waiting for them at the other end. One thing is clear, nothing will ever be the same...

The Signal begins as any number of other bait movies, you fully expect to know the direction this film will take and that's OK because director William Eubank (from Sci-fi thriller Love) has intentionally laid the trap for us to walk into like the characters. The direction of the open-road and tension between the characters at the crux of their lives is palpable set to windscreen shots of ominous thunderstorms. The sense of foreboding as the trio explore the derelict house in the desert is incredible. What is so refreshing about the direction is the constant twists that throw your plot expectations out of the window, acted incredibly ably by the relatively novice cast. Whilst this film may begin life as one thing, it rapidly becomes another. The premise is supported by an excellent aesthetic to the milieu and some truly impressive CGI. Laurence Fishburne (

With minimal big CG effects, this is a fresh slant on aliens. It poses more questions than answers and leaves you thinking about what if. Gets away from the normal bug eyed clichés. Got a little silly at times so loses a star.
