Signs is a film by M. Night Shyamalan that was made in 2002. The movie is really good and has a lot important values, such as love, hope, and family. There is no gory violence or blood, but violent characters or creatures are displayed in the film. Dogs will attack there owners out of fear, and humans will wage hand-to-hand combat against terrifying aliens. There is a brief scene of Graham (The Dad) investigating a friends house. He soon discovers that an extraterrestrial is locked inside a small room, and when Graham tries see what is in the room, a green hand with razor-sharp claws reaches under the door, resulting in Graham cutting of the fingers out of complete terror.
In various other parts of the movie, violence is inferred. A dog is killed by falling on Graham's son who had a sharp fork in his hand, causing the tool to go into the dog's neck, killing it instantly. At the end of the movie, Merrill (Graham's brother) gets into a vicious fight against an alien.
Swearing can sometimes be heard throughout the film, but only a little. Foul language is eased, but words such as f**k, sh*t, ass, and B*tch are used a few times.
Another thing to expect in this movie is peril and jumpscares. The scares come when you totally don't expect it, and they are often frightening. For instance, when Graham and his family run into the basement, trying to hide from the aliens, Merrill accidently breaks the light bulb in the room while searching hastily for a pick axe.
Once they find a few flashlights in the shelves, Merrill and Graham spot Morgan (Graham's son) standing by a small door in the room. After a few seconds, a black/green hand raises out of the darkness and grabs Morgan, resulting in a Jumpscare because it happens so unexpectedly.
Other jumpscares in the movie are to be expected as well.
Signs is also very emotional when Graham has dreams about his last chance with his wife after she dies from getting hit by a truck. When Graham and Merrill are confronted by the last alien, Graham's memory of his wife comes back, and viewers are taken through an emotional scene of Graham talking to his wife during her last moments alive. This movie also has good humor as well.
Signs is a very good movie, but I wouldn't suggest it for kids who are younger than 14.
