White Noise (2005)

Another day, another piece of PG-13 would-be-horror junk. Have we been absorbing all the wrong lessons from the ongoing J-horror renaissance? (Of course we have.) To the film's credit, it does build up some effective atmosphere. Too bad that it's all in service to a stupefying screenplay that appears to have been made up as it went, kinda like a bad game of Telephone. Tolerably mediocre for about 45 minutes, then Deborah Kara Unger shows up and ruins it for everyone. The climax is so retarded (and random) that it hurts to think about it. If EVP is a real phenomenon, then I feel bad for the people who believe in it, because this film makes them look like assholes.

Grade: D
