Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Signs is a 2002 suspense movie in which a man who has given up being a minister in the wake of the tragic car accident that took his wife must come to grips with his faith as he and his family try to make sense of what appears to be an impending alien invasion. There is some violence--a boy must kill one of his family's dogs after it turns violent, a man must fight an alien with a baseball bat. There is also demonic alien imagery and sound effects that happens more often as the story builds to its climax. Throughout, there is extreme tension and peril; while on the whole not graphic nor gory, some viewers will find it very scary. Some will be comforted by its ultimate conclusion, but others will find it disappointing, even sugary or superficial. There is also some profanity throughout.
