While there are some built-in scares, the movie is muddled and unsatisfying.

Audience Reviews for White Noise

  • Nov 28, 2017
    A rather bland and mediocre thriller, White Noise explores the mysterious paranormal science of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). Michael Keaton stars as John Rivers, a bereaved widower who discovers that his dead wife is sending him messages from the beyond through EVP that urge him to help people who are in danger from evil spirits. The writing in pretty weak and the story doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And it doesn't spend much time developing who the evil spirits are or what they want. The performances aren't that good either and are really toned down. Also, the EVP of the film isn't real EVP (which can't be interacted with post-recording) and is used more as a plot device to help the main character fight against the evil spirits. While it has an interesting premise, White Noise doesn't know what to do with it and ends up being a dull, by the numbers ghost mystery.

    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.

    An interesting paranormal thriller.
