Plot Summary:
"The 'White Noise' of the title refers to a phenomenon known as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena). Listen carefully, believers will tell you, and in amidst the white noise of a detuned radio you might hear voices...and in amidst the white noise of a detuned television, you might see faces. These, they'll tell you, are the voices and faces of the dead."

White Noise is the first official new horror release of 2005 and it is sure to do well thanks to huge advertising over the festive season, and a simultaneous US and UK theatrical release.

Michael Keaton stars as a man trying to cope after the disappearance of his wife Anna. He is contacted by a man who claims to have received a message from Anna via EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena).

After meeting with the man, Jonathan becomes obsessed with trying to contact his wife and events take a dark turn.

I don't want to give away too many plot details as the official synopsis does that all on its own. Lets just say that if you've read the plot synopsis, a potentially shocking plot turn will be ruined before it even happens.

White Noise is a novel topic to cover in the horror genre, as it concerns technological advances and how people turn to these as a way of coping with trauma.

The film looks and sounds great, and a lot of effort has gone into the production design as everything seems to flow seamlessly throughout the duration.

Michael Keaton carries the film and is definitely capable, but he has suppport from a wonderful cast. The locations really enhance the aspect of modernisation that the film was going for and the effects are well handled too.

Whilst the film is quite slowly paced, it definitely keeps you intrigued throughout, but this aspect is what annoys you the most when you leave the theatre, as you have no clear answers about what has happened.

OVERALL SUMMARY
White Noise is a well made film that keeps you interested throughout its duration. Like the characters in the film however, we never get to the bottom of the goings on and therefore we must continue our lives not knowing what is out there.
