SIGNAL

FILM: SIGNAL

DIRECTOR: DAVID BARRERA

PRODUCTION COMPANY: MINDED FACTORY

GENRE: MYSTERY, SCI-FI, THRILLER

SINOPSIS: A few decades into the future, a mission is planned by several international organizations with some funding from a couple of space industry giants. Effectively, this is a proof-of-concept mission demonstrating that the technology to support extended interstellar missions is ready for application. After 50 years of space travel sped up by a gravity engine–the Alcubierre drive–the ISC Robert Innes successfully arrives at the nearest stellar neighbor to the solar system, Proxima Centauri, with plans to sample planets in its orbit. Another objective of this mission is to find the source of a strange radio signal broadcasting from the area.

Upon arriving, the crew finds some surprising things: first, that telemetry is malfunctioning, making telemetry a round-the-clock operation; second, that the signal has no definite source, and seems to be coming from everywhere around them all at once; third, that there is a field of debris orbiting very close to the star. Upon investigating the debris field, they find that they not just shipwrecks but indeed human shipwrecks–two unconscious bodies in spacesuits are recovered from the wreckage, brought onboard, and stabilized. The signal, most definitely interfering with telemetry, proves too elusive to find; however, a major breakthrough occurs when the communications officer, Barry Whitacre, notices that the brainwave patterns of the two comatose astronauts rescued from the wreckage exactly match the signal he’s been staring at for hours on end. The captain Alex Beaumont decides to have the medical officer, Dr. al-Qatari, remove the drugs inducing coma and wake the survivors up for questioning.

DIRECTOR: DAVID BARRERA

PRODUCTION COMPANY: MINDED FACTORY

GENRE: HORROR

SINOPSIS: The way to the treasure lies in the mind of Efrén, Emilio’s only son, an innocent mentally handicapped boy who, without knowing it, holds in his confused head this enigmatic secret. Getting someone so special to reveal his secret turns out to be Dario’s hardest and most dangerous mission. In order to find the jewels Dario must first access the boy’s mysterious mind. To do this he kidnaps him from the psychiatric hospital, and takes him to a secluded place where he will use all his efforts to make him talk. During a long journey he has to play with the boy’s mind, and enter the wicked game of horror that Efrén used to play with his father.

This was the machiavellian way of Emilio to communicate with his son, since the boy in his special mind, was not able to react to direct conversation with another human being. The game transforms the innocent Efrén completely and he becomes a different being, someone even disturbing. He seems to enjoy reviving and performing the shocking horror scenes that he was forced to watch together with his diabolical progenitor, as if the world for him was a wicked play.

The distrusting and treacherous Emilio created the game to hide the treasures with the help of Efrén, burying the secret within the boy’s mind and making sure they were inaccessible for anyone else but him. The only way back to the treasure is by living the very same horrors as in Emilio’s favorite movies. Participating in such a morbid and delirious game, Darío will discover that the boy’s mind is a hell difficult to handle. Especially since Emilio, before dying, taught him to play a very special movie. A movie whose ending is much more terrifying than he could imagine, a film that could only have been directed by a real demon.
