Nic Eastman (Brenton Thwaites of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) and Jonah Breck (Beau Knapp of Southpaw and Super 8) are MIT freshmen with a passion for hacking. While driving cross-country with Nic’s girlfriend Haley Peterson (Olivia Cooke of Ready Player One) for her move from MIT to Caltech, they track a rival hacker to a location 180 miles out of their way. Following the coordinates of a traceroute, the trio journey into an eerily isolated area in the middle of the desert. Without warning their road trip takes a sudden turn into the dark. When they regain consciousness, they find themselves trapped in a waking nightmare. Struggling to comprehend the true nature of their confinement, they discover they are part of a plot much larger than themselves…


[I]mages are carefully composed with a level of elegance rarely seen in teen-oriented genre pics; Eubank started as a d.p. himself, and 'The Signal' looks a good deal more expensive than its modest budget would suggest. Visual and special effects are sparingly but effectively used

A mind-bending experience

Not a movie you'll forget anytime soon

As imaginative a sci-fi tale as District 9

After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut Lee Miller (Gunner Wright of Highway to Dhampus) becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity — and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship. Driven by the powerful music of Angels & Airwaves, Love explores the fundamental human need for connection and the limitless power of hope. A high-impact visual adventure that resonates a common truth: that everyone has a story to tell and something even greater to leave behind.


Winner — Best Director, Athens International Film Festival

An impressive show of imagination and design

Variety

[A] beautifully shot and thought provoking Sci-Fi tale of loss, isolation and loneliness

While his debut will infuriate some in its adherence to Kubrick’s cryptic stargazing and Malick’s spiritual yearning, others will be excited that those comparisons are worth making. Somehow — for only $500,000, using a set he built in his parents’ yard — Eubank has fashioned an avant-garde 'Moon', harnessing greater ambition and technical flair than most mega-budget hype magnets.

Total Film

Eubank has a practiced control of the frame, and an understanding of form that makes this micro-budget feature punch well above its weight

Filmink

Wright… gives a tour de force performance as the astronaut on the verge of cracking up, and writer–director William Eubank does things with a pocket-money budget that a studio megaproduction couldn’t manage a generation ago.
