Is "The Signal" Real?

Of course not, but I figured that headline might get your attention.

The polls have officially closed early for the strangest/creepiest horror-related news story of the year. Late yesterday afternoon, United Press International reported that a man sitting in a screening of The Signal in Fullerton, California promptly went bananas and began stabbing fellow patrons before fleeing the building.

In case you haven't heard, the low-budget thriller is all about a mysterious transmission sent via TV, cell phones, etc. which turns people into psychopaths. So it appears we're talking about one seriously impressionable dude here.

Reportedly, in the middle of the movie, the looney tune in question began abruptly stabbing the seat next to him, then the person next to him. Then he stabbed a second audience member sitting near the exit. Police arrived on the scene to find theatergoers rushing out in a panic. The perpetrator was already long gone, and has yet to be found.

The victims suffered lacerations to the arms and chest, and are currently recovering in the hospital. They're both expected to live.

Could we be seeing a wide release for The Signal as a result of this craziness? Talk about guerilla marketing...

I'm glad everyone's alright.
Leave it to a psychopath to pull a gimmick like that.

In a related story, a man watching a showing of “There Will Be Blood” was reported to have actually gone out and drank someone else’s milkshake.

Wow this is nuts, now do I be cheeky and say 'only in America'? Sorry couldn't resist.

Seriously though that is horrible and it would be a terrifying experience.

Rumor has it the man looks alot like David Bruckner... studios will go to any lengths these days to stir up controversy for a new release.
