It's terrible to see a movie with a first act this good because I'm absolutely certain that if David Bruckner had been given his Georgian turn as writer-director of an entire feature you'd see a critical and commercial success in The Signal. As it is what we have is a brilliant third followed by a haphazard tailspin into mediocrity where the other filmmakers treat the source material like the film they ape at the beginning, a bad Horror movie. In Bruckner's hands this material becomes the best remake of The Crazies you'll ever see, not a zombie movie, and he does it from an objective standpoint. The other two try to probe, over explain, and choose antagonists for the audience to be afraid of when the real danger is absolutely every human being in Terminus; maybe the world. We almost had a Salo of the zombie subgenre (cruel social commentary that never backs down) but like all modern Horror it retreats back to it's comfort zone of nonsensical cliché. Too bad, this almost made Horror relevant again... Almost.
