REVIEWS

Review by John Mailer (posted on 20-Feb-2005)

Signs is a good film, and a classic example of a story telling of aliens, and their forces.

The story is when a Reverend (Mel Gibson) and his family wake up to find crop circles in their cornfields. When the family try to investigate, the prospects become more and more chilling, until they are forced to board up their house.

But it isn't just that. Complicated things going around the house, little extras to keep you aware of what's going on, appear around the house, e.g. news, noises etc.

Eventually, one of 'them' breaks in, and a fight breaks out? Who will win? Are the extra terrestrials really what they are said?

Generally, any sci-fi fan should see this film.
