Shortwave (2016)

Trailer
1:17 | Trailer
A modern and unrelentingly tense psychological thriller based on a theory of the origins of shortwave radio frequencies, Shortwave is an unnerving reminder that some stones are best left unturned.

Do not even try

I am a fan of sci-fi movies combined with a little terror or horror, but this one it's just too slow and makes no sense. It's like new directors only know how to scare people by using very sharp sounds and music but no drama, no story or lines. I can't believe a movie like this which had all the potential to be incredible, it's a >6 on punctuation.
