"The Signalman" is liberally inspired on an eponymous Charles Dickens's short story never filmed before. It is one of the most important fantastic tales in the history of literature, according to the writer Italo Calvino. It is a tense story that takes place at a lonely train station where a man finds himself confronting his inner fears and the possible presence of the supernatural.

For Italo Calvino, "The Signalman" is among the most important narratives in fantastic literature. In this writer's view, the essence of this style lies in the problem of understanding whether what we see in such stories is a hallucination or the terrifying face of the ordinary reality. Such statement was the basis upon which director Daniel Augusto wrote, directed and edited the film. See more
