You all saw this one coming. After all of my stories about ghosts, how could I not go see and review this movie?!
A lot of people have been knocking it saying it “wasn’t scary” or “it was as retarded as every other new horror movie that’s been coming out lately” (ok DARKNESS was a retarded horror movie, as I will explain in my next review!), this movie was good, REAL good. I guess to actually enjoy it, you’d have to believe it this stuff, to be extremely disturbed watching this movie, you would of had to have had something “paranormal” happen to you. But, like I said, it’s not as bad as people are making it out to be.
The movie is based around a phenomenon known as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena), in which voices and faces of the dead can be seen and heard through radio static, tv static, etc. Sounds pretty freaky eh? Michael Keaton plays Jonathan Rivers, depressed about the loss of his wife, he goes to see a man who claims he can contact the dead. After Jonathan hears his wife’s voice in the static of a radio, he becomes obsessed with e.v.p., a little too much. That’s all I can really say without giving any important plot twists and turns away.
The movie starts out a little slow, but once it picks up it has you freaked out the whole time. Seeing and hearing the voices in the T.V., on the phone, and on the radio is some scary scary shit. It made me not want to mess with those haunted houses anymore! (haha) The movie also proves my one ghost column about the house and the txt message is possibly a ghost. ooo. haha…
There’s not too much more I can say, I don’t want to give away the only annoying part of the movie which was the end…..
But this movie is definitely worth checking out. It’ll disturb you more if you believe.
Favorite Scenes: Every time you heard or saw the ghosts! too freaky!
