Signs

Sharon and I just watched Signs on DVD. Excellent film although a little hard to get into at first.
It’s definitely not a film to watch on your own in a dark house.

The whole style of the film seems a little disjointed, I assume deliberately to put you on edge. But that makes it difficult to get into the flow from the beginning.
I like the way that, with the exception of the whole "man of god lost his faith - re-finds it" thing, they managed to avoid most of the clichés that go with this sort of film. Including not over doing the special effects.
The atmosphere is similar to that of some of the old 70s "hack n slash" with the discordant music and minimalist ambient sound track.
