Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

The swipes from pseudo-science and more inventive films serve only to put a thin gloss on the thin plot.

Poltergeist (1982) did it first and did it better. But this new stroll through cinematic static is still a sometimes spooky spin on that theme.

Does bad reception on the TV set send shivers down your spine? Me neither.

Too dull to make you care.

Michael Keaton stares at a fuzzy TV image, waiting for something to happen; we stare at Michael Keaton, waiting for the same.

I say the ghosts should either upgrade to satellite radio signals or stick with the old-fashioned Ouija board. And would it kill ya to call?

...a clumsy, dreadfully preposterous and pedestrian thriller that seems to believe loud noises are the same as good frights.

Keaton's performance aside, White Noise is astonishingly drab, aimlessly meandering, and entirely beholden to earlier cinematic successes.

[A] dullsville chiller.

Like the phenomenon of the title, the film suggests possible revelations but in the end is just a blur.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

A little skepticism would have gone a long way in this movie, because if the characters don't pause to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, we are forced to do the guffawing for them.

For [Keaton], a forgettable flick like this one is like a rehab stint in A ball for a big league pitcher

White Noise's scares mostly wind up lost in transmission.

Eric D. Snider

Hearing dead people's voices through static loses its spine-chilling power after a few minutes, and unfortunately, that's about all the film has to offer.

White Noise isn't exactly worth rushing out to the theater for, but in the heap of junk food January releases offer, you could do much, much worse.

An interesting idea pulled apart by the expediencies of a grimly formulaic plot.

The nominal thriller White Noise is worthy neither of Michael Keaton's talents nor even a desperate horror fan's attention.
