BIQ Guide To Horror Clichés: No mobile phone signal.

Are telecommunications in the United States really as bad as horror movies would have us believe? According to the world of horror cinema the only place to get a reliable mobile phone signal is in a box buried under ground in the middle of the Iraqi desert.

Cliché Annoyance Factor: Low / Moderate / High
