'The Signal' (June 13)
While driving his college-bound girlfriend cross-country, a computer whiz (Maleficent's Brenton Thwaites; keep an eye out for this kid) and his equally geeky best friend decide to make a detour to bust a legendary hacker who's been taunting them. They trace the cyber-outlaw's "signal" to a dilapidated house in rural Nevada — at which point things take a seriously WTF left turn. (Hint: It involves a popular conspiracy theory.) Director William Eubank has a facility for fucking with your head and doing a helluva lot with very little; it's hard to think of a recent sci-fi film that's used its modestly budgeted limitations to such great effect. And did we mention that Morpheus himself, Laurence Fishburne, shows up at the halfway point in a hazmat suit?
