Maya is having an affair with Ben. He begs her to meet him at Terminus bus station and come away with him but she returns home to her husband Lewis. Lewis is arguing with two of his friends and as she watches Lewis suddenly beats one of them to death with a baseball bat. She flees to a neighbour’s apartment but everyone in the building has gone crazy and is trying to kill each other. She realizes that the madness is being caused by strange signals that are coming through all TV’s, radios and telephones. They’re invading everybody’s minds. Suddenly struck by the power of the insidious transmissions, they are compelled to kill or be killed. Complicating matters is a zombie-like resistance some characters have to the idea of remaining dead. And nobody can be sure who, inside or outside, has the signal madness. In The Signal, young American filmmakers David Bruckner, Dan Bush, and Jacob Gentry offer us a truly original horror experience, ingeniously blending bloody gore with psychological satire. They tell their eerie tale in three parts called Transmissions I, II and III, shifting perspectives to draw out a larger story that explores dark secrets and fears as well as jealousy and betrayal. Not for the faint of heart, The Signal will nonetheless satisfy those looking for a smart exploration of the power of media to mutate our minds. It is truly inspired independent filmmaking that will stalk viewers from every dark corner while examining the surprising human madness lying deep within.
