Movie Summary

Director:
David Bruckner
Released:
2006
Rating:
R
The Signal is a chaotic journey into civilization gone mad. Told from three different perspectives, this wild ride shows what can happen when technology bites back. Every transmittable device in Terminus begins sending out a strange signal, and all who come in contact with it go into a maniacal killing frenzy. Ben Capstone (Justin Welborn) has managed to avoid this ominous signal and races against time and seemingly insurmountable odds to rescue his secret love Mya (Anessa Ramsey) whose husband Lewis (AJ Bowen) is not keen on the idea. Finding the source of this mysterious transmission may be the only way Ben can save, not only himself, but the woman he loves. With madness and death everywhere and many of the dead refusing to stay down, safety is hard to find. With each directing a unique point of view, David Bruckner, Dan Bush, and Jacob Gentry bring technology into the killing age.
