I’ve been reading a lot of buzz out of Sundance about this movie, and now that I’ve seen this trailer, I’m pretty excited to see The Signal. With the ever increasing ease of access that people have to professional-quality “prosumer” filmmaking equipment, it’s great to see so many cool independent, low-budget sci-fi films being made.
The Signal comes out in limited release June 13, 2014.
