Storyline

The car of successful author Anna Rivers is found disabled next to the river, the thought being that she accidentally fell into the river while trying to change a flat tire. Her dead body is found upstream several weeks later, consistent with the accidental death theory. Based on incidents around him, her grieving husband, architect Jonathan Rivers, decides several months later to visit with Raymond Price, who approached John prior to Anna's body being found with news that she was trying to contact him from beyond. At that time, John was skeptical of Raymond's claims of electronic voice phenomena (EVP): that he is contacted from the beyond through electronic means - radio, television - which he is able to record. Along with Sarah Tate, another of Raymond's "clients" whose fiancé passed away, John becomes obsessed with EVP as he gets more and more audio and video messages, however fuzzy, from Anna from beyond. That obsession takes a slight change in focus when John believes that Anna ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

(At around one minute) Approximately one second before the WHITE NOISE title card appears, there is a split-second subliminal "flash" image of a skeletal figure. Immediately after the final blackout at the end of the film, there is another "flash" image, this time (presumably) of Michael Keaton, which fades into the static. See more »

Goofs

When the news crews report about finding Anna's body, they say it was found upstream. Upstream would mean that her body floated against the current. See more »

Quotes

Jonathan Rivers: [Anna has just gotten off the phone with John's ex-wife] What did she say?
Anna Rivers: She said she can't make it.
Mike Rivers: Does that mean I get to skip school?
Anna Rivers: No, it means I take you instead. Nice try.
Jonathan Rivers: Was good try, though...

Crazy Credits

The opening of the film starts with: "Nobody knows whether our personalities pass on to another existence or sphere, but if we can evolve an instrument so delicate to be manipulated by our personality as it survives in the next life such an instrument ought to record something..." Thomas Edison 1928 E.V.P.; (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) The recording of voices and images of the dead, using de-tuned receiving apparatus. Identified in 1939, and now the subject of increasing scientific research worldwide, to finally evidence communication with the deceased. See more »

Disappointing!!!!!
24 November 2005 | by krycek19See all my reviews

Again a movie that shows that Hollywood really cant make horrormovies anymore unless they're remakes of Japanese horrormovies. The idea is good but nothing works in this boring not scary at all movie. It has scary moments and is creepy from time to time, sure. But it never really gets scary and the ending ruins an already bad movie. The actors are not very good either except from Michael Keaton, but heas always good. Even in bad movies. Don't watch this unless you're paid to watch it. Its really, really bad. Lets just hope there will be a directors cut edition made some day, with a better ending and more explanations than in this version.
