The spirit of a murdered girl returns with a message. Now a stranded woman must team up with the staff of a local radio station to solve the mystery of her death.
The “Dark Signal” trailer reminds me of “The Girl in the Photographs”. A dark paranormal detective kind of movie. We’ve seen films like this plenty of times. A victim of murder appears in spirit form in order get revenge on their death. An unsuspecting source must piece together the clues and solve the mystery. Based on the trailer, “Dark Signal” looks like it’s taking this path. Not many films that take this path succeed very well. And, now this story has been told so many times, you feel like you know how it plays out.
“Dark Signal” looks like it could break that chain of familiarity if executed well. If director Edward Evers-Swindell proceeds with caution, “Dark Signal” could very well be a breath of fresh air in a very tired story genre.
