    Signs' twist was awful. It was more War of the Worlds than Hitchcock, only it didn't really do that very well anyway.

    ALIENS ARE LETHALLY ALLERGIC TO WATER

    ALIENS INVADE A PLANET 2/3RDS WATER WITH COMPLEX IRRIGATION AND WEATHER PATTERNS

    ALIENS ARE BASICALLY FUCKING IDIOTS

    The only clever thing about the film is all the signposting it actually does (not just for the aliens themselves, but for all the little incidental details too), with an underlying current of precognition/faith/whatever, but the whole alien/water thing is just so monumentally stupid it ruins it completely.
    I remember reading some fan theory that said that the aliens were actually demons. Was really convincing actually. Then again I havent watched Signs in years and all this depends on how talented you think the guy is.

    A bit like the dilemma when you realise Ironic by Alanis Morissette contains absolutely no irony thus becoming ironic due to said virtue. Is that cleverness or accidental genius?!
