| This one can wrestle with the best of 'em...
This is suspense and horror at its finest....

I read that some of the viewers find the second transmission to be funny. Not for me, it was madness all over. This movie absorbed me more then any of the latest "zombie" installations. Especially interesting is the fact that everyone gets affected by the signal. Each in his own way (and that's probably what some consider funny). It is not the typical survivors versus evil thing. Everyone fights against his own paranoia here, snapping in and out of reality.

Plenty of gore but they do not go over the top with it. Pacing is good, camera is good (no shaky stuff here) and i liked the minimalistic distortion effects.

It might be a bit confusing for some to watch, because the storytelling is not straight forward. Lots of jumps between timelines and hallucinations from the protagonists, i loved it.

It's like a LSD trip gone wrong...

All three directors are on my watchlist now, thanks for this nice piece of work. Any horror buff should try it, this is some solid stuff.

Gimme more !!!
