I WATCHED IT AND IT WAS TERRIFINGLY AMAZING! (HEART).

Signs is a slow-boiling Science-Fiction Thriller that focuses on the Hess Family dealing with strange occurrences at their farm. First, unexplained crop circles appear, then their dogs become agitated, and finally they see what appear to be malevolent beings invade their property in the early stages of what might be an invasion. When more crop circles and other sightings begin to happen globally, the Hess family is forced to confront the menace on their own while already dealing with personal loss. Sometimes humorous to break up the mounting tension, Signs offers a story about faith, family, dealing with grief and standing together against adversity. Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, Rory Culkin and Abigail Breslin star as the besieged family. M. Night Shymalan also appears. One of Shymalan's better films for building suspense and being entertaining from start to finish.

Continuity mistake: When the deputy sheriff comes out of the house, her ink pen is sticking through the hole in her pocket flap but not in the pocket itself. After she turns around at the car, her ink pen is inside her pocket and not "flapping" loose as it was just a split second before. (00:21:15)

Trivia: When the alien's hand comes out of the coal grate for Morgan, if you look closely you will see that the hand was already through the grate and the alien was using its colour changing abilities to hide. So if you look very closely you will that that the hand comes UP from the grate and not through it, and if you look VERY carefully you can see the outline of the hand even before Morgen says "What?"

More trivia for Signs

Question: Do the individual aliens have cloaking abilities? It seemed at that the dogs were reacting to something that the people could not see. Were they smelling cloaked aliens? Were they going crazy to protect their human owners and that was misinterpreted as an attack on the people? I thought they are walking around at least invisible at times to do their work without detection. I may be wrong on that.

Answer: The aliens were not cloaked, not invisible. They had a chameleon-like ability to change their appearance to match their background. Recall the alien's fingers turning plaid when he held the boy. They seem to be that green color when not camouflaged. The better senses of the dogs did allow them to detect the aliens. However, one of the effects of alien presence noted in the movie was a change in personality; that is what happened to the dogs.
