The movie was The Signal (the fascinating and gruesome trailer is below), a horror flick where most of the credited cast has names like "Random Body" and, err, "Random Body." As mentioned in Friday's LAist Weekend Movie Guide, it was a hit at Sundance 2007.

Well, imagine watching this scary movie in a near empty theater. That's what was happening Sunday night around 7:30 p.m. at the Fullerton AMC Theater in Orange County. Then imagine, possibly during a stabbing scene (it's a pretty intense horror movie, so the odds are there), that you are getting stabbed yourself. Yeah, that happened to two men in separate parts of the theater when another patron yielded a knife. One victim, was stabbed in the arm, but another had his lungs punctured, but officials say he is expected to survive.
