The Signal stars Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix trilogy) opposite rising young stars Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), and Beau Knapp (Super 8). Scott Bowles of USA Today writes, "Had Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch made a movie together, it might have looked something like The Signal."  

Nic (Thwaites), his girlfriend Haley (Cooke), and his buddy Jonah (Knapp) take an unexpected detour from an idyllic cross-country road trip when they are contacted by a mysterious hacker who has gained entry into MIT's secured network. But after a rendezvous in an eerily remote area goes awry, Nic wakes to a living nightmare in an isolation unit. Now under interrogation by Dr. Wallace Damon (Fishburne), Nic is determined to find his friends and break free.
