‘Signs’ Is One of the Creepiest Science-Fiction Movies I’ve Ever Seen

Have you ever heard of Signs, an M. Night Shyamalan movie from 2002 starring Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix as two brothers living in the Midwest when strange things start happening at their farm.

Yeah, it was a film that I had never heard of before last week but when I watched it I knew I would never forget it.

The 5 Biggest Scares in M Night Shyamalan's SIGNS -

I watched the movie’s trailer and I knew it was probably going to be a little spooky but it wasn’t until I actually watched the film and found out that it was a M. Night Shyamalan movie that I began to get worried.

I’ve seen The Sixth Sense and Split so I know Shyamalan is good at scaring you and sure enough Signs had me wholly frightened for roughly two hours. Like A Quiet Place, Signs messes with the psyche for much of the duration of the movie but frankly I think Signs is scarier than A Quiet Place.

Is it better than A Quiet Place? No. A Quiet Place is more cohesive and has a stronger ending but Signs is one to watch if you’re a fan of scary sci-fi movies. I honestly have never been so terrified watching a science-fiction movie because when I watched Alien I already knew what the alien looked like and I knew some various scenes thanks to my father always mentioning how much those scenes scared him when he first saw it.

All in all, I’ll give Signs 85 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars. It was pretty good but I can’t give it anything over a B.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.

Movie Review Flashback: The ‘Eastrail 177’ Trilogy Is One of the Underrated Best Comic Book Trilogies of All Time

It wasn’t until about a couple of weeks ago that I watched Split for the first time. I had seen the commercials, my mother watched it and said that it was surprisingly good, and when my sister and I finally saw it to say we were horrified is an understatement.

Split, which follows the story of three teenage girls abducted by a man who has twenty-three personalities, is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever seen. The film doesn’t mess around with boring details or a storyline that chooses to take its own time before getting to the nitty-gritty. No, this movie keeps you on your toes from the very beginning and doesn’t let up the gas until by the conclusion you are staring at the screen in sheer horror.

After Split, we had to see where the story was going to go in last year’s finale of the trilogy, Glass. Unsurprisingly, Glass was just as riveting, in an albeit quieter fashion. We get to see M. Night Shyamalan’s (the writer/director of the trilogy) main characters–David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Crumb (James McAvoy)–come together in the trilogy finale in a story that leads to the very unexpected.

The ending is a bit controversial among fans of the trilogy who were expecting the norm but honestly, I think this trilogy created by M. Night Shyamalan is a work of art.
