Watch: White Noise 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – 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 is trying to pass along information to help others. But the nature of those messages and their connection to Raymond in combination with John learning that not all good comes through EVP leads to the possible belief that he dabbling in EVP in and of itself may be dangerous and the cause of those potentially deadly issues in which he is supposed to assist in helping. John has to decide whether or not to continue with his work in EVP, not continuing which means that he may actually prevent bad things from happening, and continuing which means that he gets his much wanted connection with Anna..
Plot: An architect’s desire to speak with his wife from beyond the grave using EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), becomes an obsession with supernatural repercussions.

Chilling and effective.
White Noise is a film that takes a true scientific phenomenon, and makes a film out of it. The phenomenon is one which involves electronic recording/broadcast equipment. In amongst white-noise (that crackle and hiss you get on a blank recording) and static on untuned TV reception there are voices and images discernible. Sometimes these voices have been clear enough to work out, and many people believe they are the voices and images of those who have died, trying to contact the living.
In the film, Michael Keaton plays Jonathan Rivers, an estate agent who loses his wife. When he is approached by Raymond, a man who lost his son years ago and claims he has heard from Jonathan’s wife, it draws him into the phenomenon, and pretty soon he becomes obsessed, recording his own tapes and viewing/listening to them for messages. Then, suddenly, the messages become clear, and seem to be premonitions. Can he decipher the meaning of the messages, or will he disturb something best left alone? I was uncertain going into the film what to expect. Too many times the film world have come up with a great concept, but failed to deliver anything more than mediocre when it is a horror subject. Expecting another Godsend, I was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty good film, with some nice touches, and chills. Admittedly the story wouldn’t look out of place on X-Files, but unlike the recent The Forgotten, it manages to feel complete, and doesn’t seem to take the easy option at the end.
The direction by Sax (best know for his TV work such as Tipping the Velvet, Dr Who, Clocking Off, and Spitting Image to name a few) is more than sufficient, and he uses the white-noise to great effect. A little buzz here, and flicker there all serve to unnerve, and you could be forgiven for thinking you are watching another Japanese adaptation. There are a lot of similarities to eastern horror throughout, the use of silence the unnerve, the distorted images in the TV sets, and so on. Only the occasion “music to let you know you should jump” lets down the tone.
Nevertheless, with a well woven script which doesn’t pander to the lowest denominator, and a sterling performance from Michael Keaton, who hasn’t really had a presence on the screen since 1998s Jack Frost, make this an enjoyable little movie which deserves a viewing or two.
“White Noise” was previewed in Portland, Oregon this evening…
Sorry to tell you that this movie has one of the worst scripts ever. It’s just a shame, too — because I like Michael Keaton and think he has one of the sexiest mouths I’ve ever seen (and I’m probably old enough to be his mother). I really wanted to like this flick since I couldn’t recall the last movie I’d seen him in.
On the positive side, “White Noise” was well acted and directed. The scary effects were jolting. The music was exciting and helped to build the tension. The characters were interesting and, although I don’t particularly believe in ghosts, I felt some emotional bond with this theme.
Aside from that, the movie’s script makes little or no sense. The ending was unforgivably dumb and for me, the movie was a big waste of time. My husband fell asleep for the last twenty minutes, so he was in a better place for the incredibly unmotivated ending.
I didn’t stay for the credits. Where was this film shot? There are no filming locations noted here at IMDb. The only clue was one character has a business card that says “Washington” and area code 206.
I’m giving it a “D” and just cannot recommend this movie. However, there are some January holdovers that may pique your interest. Try “The Aviator” — “Kinsey” — or “Sideways” this weekend.
See you at the movies!
