Sort of an interesting premise (a deeply grieving husband is contacted by his recently deceased wife) but like a lot of supernatural thrillers its creepy set-up is ultimately better than its delivery. The cast and crew does well but the script has little for them to finish with.

It boasts a very interesting premise and it does have its own scares and thrills. Backed up by convincing acting it's not as bad as its put out to be. The problem with White Noise however is its muzzled plotline that can sometimes be a bit of distraction from listening.

White Noise is a decent psychological horror film that has a good premise, but the plots at times doesn't really work. However the film is held together by a good cast that includes Michael Keaton and Deborah Kara Unger. The film has enough momentum to entertain you, and the plot is quite interesting. However, it's clear that the film could have been done much better, and the film could have something really great. Instead the end result is a mixed bag. The film is entertaining, but it leaves you wanting more. The ideas on-screen work, but only to a certain degree. Then the films sort of falls apart. I think it's a real shame, because the film had so much potential at being a better film than it is. White Noise is not a terrible film, neither is it a missed opportunity, however it could have been something terrific, but director Geoffrey Sax doesn't know where to go at times with his story, like he's almost not interested in telling an effective, and creepy story. For the most part, White Noise does have good chills and effective tension, however halfway through the middle things get kind of shaky and the story falls apart. After a while the plot becomes boring, and the story lumbers around to a somewhat lacking ending. What was a strong beginning is a disappointing ending to a decent film. The film had the potential of being an effective horror film, but in the end, it's a decent film that has an anticlimactic ending. Entertaining, but flawed, White Noise is good, but suffers from a poor second half.

We don't see Michael Keaton in a lot of movies these days. Seems his career is about as dead as the deceased souls he communicates with in this one. At any rate, as far as horror stories go, this is sadly nothing special. I do have a wide interest in the subject matter - especially as I have personal experience of contact with the no longer living - but it wasn't quite enough to break it out of the clutches of mediocracy. Fairly intriguing up until the end, where things are regrettably concluded on a very low and unsatisfying note.

The first hour is solid gold, but then everything goes south and fast.

Some scenes were scary. But I found the researching thingy was a bit boring.

Glacial 'thriller' which desperately wants to be J-horror scary but merely puts you to sleep. Takes forever to get going and Keaton doesn't help. Bad example of Hollywood jumping on a bandwagon which had already left town.

White Noise offers an interesting look into the world of the afterlife by delving into one mans obsession with EVP. Unfortunately due to the nature of the film the majority of it has Keaton sat in front of computers/tape recorders/television sets. This becomes very boring very fast. He does some investigative work but this only leads him to the most bizarre of endings with flying ghost attacks, a strange "twist" which just confuses matters. Keaton does a bang up job, his expressive face and wonderful acting skills capturing the emotional aspects of dealing with communicating with dead loved ones. It tries a bit too hard to be an exciting horror rather than simply explore it's wonderful premise.

It was quite interesting and had some really scary jump out of your skin bits but I just wasn't enjoying it. Parts were confusing and others were really predictable.

Chilling movie about voices of the dead. Michael's wife dies and he is contacted by a man who says she is trying to communicate to him.

A complete absence of scary moments (which a horror movie kinda sorta needs) and a nonsensical story combined into a perfect, utter disaster. On a brighter note, it's comforting to know that the worst movie possible has been made, and I've already seen it. It's all uphill from here!

Quite interesting, a movie with a fairly good story and plot. A decent cast, the perfomance from Michael Keaton was good. The only bad thing was the way it ended, expected something better

Borrring. I had high expectations for this movie. I thought it'd really show some stuff about paranormal, but turns out, it was just complete boringness. I tried to watch it 3 different times, and got bored and couldnt finish it, each time.

A cool thriller based on a popular idea.

Straight-up boring as hell. A horrible realization of a horrible premise. The entire movie is spent staring at Michael Keaton's back, listening to static and waiting for nonsensical shit to jump out from the edge of the screen. The plot is underdone and the only dimensions that the cast have, the only things that link them together, are the people close to them that have died.

Michael Keaton did a terrible job in this, by the way. He makes some truly idiotic facial expressions.
