One of the few genre movies that made any kind of splash at this year's Sundance Film Festival, "The Signal" was described by USA Today as something that felt like what would have happened "had Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch made a movie together." The sci-fi thriller concerns a group of kids who, following clues from a mysterious hacker, get into a car accident and wake up in a mysterious compound. If that isn't intriguing enough, check out our exclusive clip.

The Signal - Clip No. 1

In the clip, co-writer/director William Eubank does some commentary on a scene following the kids' abduction. Nick (Brenton Thwaites, who can currently be seen as Prince Phillip in Disney's "Maleficent" and stars in the upcoming "The Giver") has come to and wants to get the hell out of there. He doesn't know where his buddy Jonah is and his girlfriend (the impossibly lovely Olivia Cooke) is in a coma. Still, he's got to get out. And as you watch the suspense-infused scene take place, you get the sense that Eubank really wanted to wring the most amount of tension out of it as he possibly could. Rarely do you get this kind of insight from a filmmaker, especially in a movie so new, and it's refreshing to hear.

The film, which co-stars Laurence Fishburne (because, obviously, if you have a movie about hackers, you have to get Morpheus in there somewhere), will be released today. And after you've seen this scene, can you really resist going for the whole thing?
