Signs

Signs ★★★★½

A childhood favorite. Haven’t seen this one in over 10 years or so and I had a blast!!! Back in the day, my friends and I completely wore out my VHS copy. I recognize the cheesy parts and some of the jokes feel tacked on but my attachment to this one honestly blinds me from most criticisms. The way Shayamalan shoots the setting, especially at night, is absolutely perfect. Just brings the eeriest atmosphere to the film. Those quiet creeping violins under most scenes really drive this one home. Throw in the very real and unnerving news scenes and you’ve got a real banger from M Night. I love this thing. Mel is really great here. Love this one. Come on come on.
