It's a flick about People afraid of change ... beyond the forest is modern society of today. John Hurst's character is the one who kills the animals and puts blood on the doors (as seen in the trailer) so that the people of the village believe that creatures really exist when in fact they dont. From the last revision of the script.

I put spoiler tags just in case. This way ppl read it at their own risk.
Please next time you wish to give out info (wheter its true or not) use the Tags, thank you.

Signs - M. Night Shyamalan

just saw signs and thought it was really good

i like all of M. Night Shyamalan's films - i like how he takes an old concept and gives it a cool twist

aliens - signs
superheros - unbreakable

signs was an excellent movie. when we got back from the movies, my friends dropped me off and i kept looking up at my roof. and i live right next to a soccer feild-- and i know this is asinine but-- i kept looking night after night if there would be a mini- crop circle in it.

Signs reminds me of Indepence Day in many ways. Of course its not as extreme and its just a much better made movie.

yah, somewhat.... and it was made alot better also.. superbly crafted. Used suspense rather than shock to make the movie somewhat scary. Specially the part on where the newscast shows the alien walking out of the bushes and on top of the roof

i think youve misunderstood me

i wasnt saying signs was like the film 'alien' or 'aliens'.


i was saying the director takes a familiar concept such as;

ghosts in the sixth sense
superheros in unbreakable
or aliens (the creatures not the film) in signs

and then gives it a bit of a twist to create a good film.

Yeh, that was cool. And the scene in the basement with the kid. If you pay attention you can see the hand is already there.
I didnt like them showing the alien (in the house, in the tv it was wicked)but... wink

I'm actually looking forward to the village. I think that it looks like another hit, and will def draw in the thriller fans, not to mention the shyamalan fan base.

I wonder how he'll utilize that "M. Night Symbolism" that we all know and love. It looks like his use of color (the bright red on the doors) might be a big factor in the village.....

any thoughts?

yeah Signs is cool, the way the whole movie is basically a conversation between Mel Gibson's character and god. and i liked the way everything came together at the end, and how everything bad that had happened to Gibson's character, even the death of his wife, had a reason behind it.

plus Joaquin Phoenix is my fave actor thumb up

Yeah, Signs was great, as well as his other movies. I like looking back at his movies into all the symbolism that he uses; the colors, the water, the children. It's all pretty cool and fun to see how each film has similar uses of symbolism.

I heard recently that a documentary on Shyamalan is coming out in the next few months; on Sci-Fi I think. That should definitely be interesting.

I can't wait for his new movie coming out this summer. Does anyone have a good idea of what this story line's going to be or what kind of twist may be used at the end?

Yah... it was somewhat shocking that you actually saw the alien..but well..atleast he made all the little quirks each character had work well to defeat it. and how showed the alien in the first place..from the tv and how you saw it change its appearence through camoflauge.

Mook, from what you said..it was preety easy to misinturpet.

and Vag.... well how bout you just go to the movies and find out what the twist is..hehe.

There's a thread about it. Please discuss it there.
