A family living on a farm finds mysterious crop circles in their fields which suggests something more frightening to come.

❤ – One of the genres that can easily spook me are extraterrestrial horror films. I don’t mean movies like Alien (1979) or E.T. (1982). I’m really just talking about The Fourth Kind (2009), where aliens come to your room and haunt in their own mysterious and creepy ways. Signs was a little bit like that, but I think it could’ve been a lot scarier. The tension and suspense was there, but I just wasn’t sold on the alien look they tried to achieve, which made it more corny for the most part. Corny isn’t always bad though, it was the kind of corny where you could have a laugh and still have a scare.
