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

(at around 16 mins) When Rivers first encounters Price, Price places his business card atop a circular-shaped thing in the doorway of the building. After a shot of Rivers and Price, the card disappears. Price walks away, we cut back to Rivers and the card reappears on the wall. See more »

Quotes

John's Secretary: Something's up. Something's really up.

Scary but a Little Disappointing
5 February 2005 | by Brooks24See all my reviews

There was little closure; what happened to the three, evil ghosts? It had little dialog, and thus, it did not bring out Keaton's great acting talent. However, it was scary, and the music was impeccably timed. It reminded me of the movie, Frequency. When are they going to give Keaton some better roles? Quicksand and, now, this? If you want to see Keaton in some other films, watch Night Shift (funny), Clean and Sober (tragic), and The Paper (crazy). If you want to see some better written, new scary movies, watch Signs and What Lies Beneath. However, if you just want to go to the movies to be scared, the film is worth the money; it does keep you on the edge of your seat.
