Signs was the first alien movie I've ever seen- and my dad is a pastor. It's likely that I have a bias towards this one. Shyamalan's at his best during these years. This visionary film was way ahead of it's time and is still an enjoyable watch. Cleverly crafting alien life with an original take on the haunted house genre. Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, and little Rory Culkin all provide wonderful performances and ultimately create the strange atmosphere that is Signs.
