White Noise (very creepy)
White noise is great movie. It is really creepy and unfolds in a really entertaining way. Michael Keaton has to use electric voice recordings of the dead to help prevent future tragedies. Unfortunately the ending is somewhat unsatisfying. Overall this is a really good scary movie.

White Noise 2005 DVD
Michael Keaton tried to portray a widower whose wife dies in an accident. People who are involved in the EVP (Electric Voice Phenomenon) pseudo-science who believe they can use rigged up equipment to allow dead people to contact them start showing up all around Rivers (Keaton). They get him going believing that his wife is contacting them. Then he rapidly becomes as addicted to the EVP beliefs system as them; practically ignoring his motherless little boy. That is the part of the film which bothers me most.
Before you know it his whole world centers around making EVP contact with his dead wife and the rest of the dead who are interfering with his desired direct contact with her.
The show is dull and unbelievable. The plot isn't interesting either. To be obsessed with the dead while a little boy needs a dad to be with him amongst the living is not my kind of flick. It seems to justify negligence by a father of a child.
I call it spookological. But it's not even scary, or a thriller, or a suspense because there is no basic sustaining plot that holds the film together in a meaningful way.
So the guy loses his wife and becomes obsessed with her death? What's original about that? What's original about weird hooky spooky side show techniques which pretend to make contact with dead people who are beloved or dangerous? I found it rather morbid, but certainly not thrilling.Read full review

Worst Movie Razzie
There's nothing memorable about this botched movie. The acting is horrendous and the script's worse. It's cast could easily be considered completely miscast. Plus, the story is unbelievable with no characters with whom to identify.
There's one positive comment about it: if there weren't bloody awful films like this, we may not appreciate the great ones as much.

This movie has both a light and dark side. It helps those who don't understand this phenominon, but goes a little too deep maybe to the point of scaring away potential white noise analysts. If you are buying this movie because you believe, then you'd like TAPS as well. If you are just curious about White Noise, then there are documentaries on the extras on this disk. It is suspenseful, and is better than some of the horror moives that I've seen. This movie is not for the weak of heart!
For the price I paid for the movie, I'd definately recommend to everyone!
