Day 7: The Signal

“Anna, I need a couple of things that Ken borrowed, namely my hatchet… and some garbage bags.”

A mysterious signal is being transmitted by television, phone and radio. Those who are affected by the signal are murdering and torturing people left and right. It just seems like the right thing to do for some reason. The others are killing people because they need to protect themselves, but are they crazy too? Are the people they are protecting themselves from really after them, or are they dilusional?

I really liked this movie a lot. The story is broken up into three parts, with a different writer/director for each segment (David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry). The segments have distinct styles and tone, yet somehow they come together to build a cohesive film. This is also among the best mumblegore movies I have seen.
