Hated, despised, and detested Signs. Absolute piece of coincidence-dependent drivel. Only thing good about it was it had some of the creepiest aliens ever, but it was a bonehead stupid movie. I haven't seen one Shamyalan's since. I really liked Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, too.
Yeah I thought UNBREAKABLE was terrific. But I have seen subsequent movies from Shyamalan and I have to tell you Mark, you've chosen wisely. Each one was progressively worse. Shyamalan's problem is that he wants to be an auteur. He is a talented director but a mediocre writer. His movies do boffo box office though so the nightmare continues.
One more thing about Philip K Dick. In my opinion the finest work he ever did was his contribution to DANGEROUS VISIONS, Faith of Our Fathers, which I think would make a terrific psychological horror film in the right hands.
