Storyline

Larry Pearce is a dour office worker in a phone answering company who is having problems getting over the recent death of his young son from a rare brain disorder. Larry's grief has somehow triggered his acute sense of hearing 20-fold which he can hear a whispered conversation from hundreds of feet away. But his ability soon affects his sanity as he learns he cannot control it and all efforts to block out sound are futile, which puts a strain on his long-suffering wife Brenda, who unlike him, cannot stand quiet. As as result, Larry's slow slide into insanity because of his gift/curse of sensitive hearing and inability to deal with the grief of the loss of his son, leads to more tragedy for all involved.

Good, tense episode
28 November 2006 | by (Perth, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Brad Anderson has proved time and again with his previous chillers Session 9 and The Machinist that he is a new genre name to keep an eye on. Whereas most young directors are using shock, torture and gore to cover up their lack of voice, Anderson is going for broke with his quiet yet tense films. His episode of Masters Of Horror, Sounds Like, is yet another medal on his chest as this one is yet another winner. Anyone who is looking for an action packed gore filled episode better look elsewhere. Sounds Like has a slow build, but it is well worth the wait. While not a whole lot happens in the first 40 minutes of the episode, the tone of the proceedings and the plot help set the viewer up for the true horror that is to come. To put it quite frankly, Edgar Allan Poe would be very proud as this episode is a build full of atmosphere and tension to an ending that truly shocks. This is horror in its true form and with it Anderson earns his rank as a master of horror.
