      Nina E It is suspenseful and will keep you wondering all the way to the end. It won't answer any questions but it will keep you on edge. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/08/23 Full Review Ted B 3.0 stars; The mystery part was good. But I need to file this movie under the category of just plain weird I guess I'm just not sophisticated enough to get it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/16/23 Full Review Jeffrey B Another one is these "this is movie is so bad who would make it?" movies that I feel guilty I invested two hours on this. Not even sure how this gets the tomatoes it does may be among worst of all time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Overall, I had a great time with this film.  The film gets underway with a thrilling and creepy plot quickly, and I found myself hooked and eager to know the truth of all the mysteries.  Pacing is also snappy as it feels like something is always happening on screen.  The fun musical score brings this crime story to life with a neo-noir feel.  However, while being an entertaining thriller, I feel a few issues could bother many, including the odd cuts between scenes and some lines of dialogue that feel poorly delivered.  Ultimately the film's lack of conclusion, especially during the final moments, will leave audiences either baffled or stumped.  When it comes to the core plot, it's brilliant, but not everything is spoon-fed, and this will keep viewers guessing and thinking upon their first watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Shayla S A well acted and genuinely creepy film that's only setback is the ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/14/22 Full Review jonah a Really well done and well acted, but the ending left me very confused as to what I watched.

      Wendy Ide Observer (UK) The rest of the picture – a muddle of loose ends and shapeless paranoia – fails to match the malevolent potency of these video nasties in miniature. Rated: 2/5 Mar 27, 2022 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) The ending, especially, is hugely disappointing, even moronic. Rated: 2/5 Mar 25, 2022 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian [An] unsettling paranoia thriller... Rated: 3/5 Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews Starring Harry Shum Jr as a video archivist on a mission, Broadcast Signal Intrusion is a paranoia-fuelled, noir-like sci-fi thriller that doesn't quite know what to do with its irresistible premise. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 26, 2023 Full Review Dallas King Outtake Mag [the film] keeps the audience in the dark as much as it does its protagonist... The viewer inevitably grows more entangled in James’ investigation, and by extension becomes complicit in his increasingly erratic behaviours. Rated: 3/5 Nov 13, 2022 Full Review Niall Browne Movies in Focus Broadcast Signal Intrusion really delivers on slow creeping atmosphere. Directed by Jacob Gentry and written by Phil Drinkwater and Tim Woodall, it riffs on a few classic movies but its a credit to the films construction that nothing feels derivative. Rated: 4/5 Apr 5, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
