Universal City, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–April 28, 2005–White Noise, a film so disturbing that those who watch it are never the same again, comes to DVD and VHS on May 17, 2005. Tapping into our deepest fears and most profound longings, White Noise explores a real-life phenomenon by which the dead communicate with the living through the static generated by modern electronic devices. Now for the first time, the chilling, edge-of-your-seat thriller based on this otherworldly occurrence, known as Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP), comes to DVD along with spine-tingling bonus features focusing on actual EVP events. The DVD and VHS are priced at $29.98 SRP.

Michael Keaton, Deborah Kara Unger (A Love Song for Bobby Long) and Chandra West (“Category 6: Day of Destruction”) star in the $55 million box office hit that both hypnotized and terrified audiences. For two decades, a quiet worldwide movement has been gaining momentum among believers in EVP and those who have captured extraordinary recordings of communications from the dead. These otherworldly transmissions, captured by people all over the globe with simple tape and video recorders, seem to confirm the unsettling possibility that it is possible for the dead to communicate with the living, with sometimes unwanted consequences.

Chilling Bonus Features

For those who dare to believe, the White Noise DVD includes bonus features that explore the eerie phenomenon of EVP, including a live filming of a recording session with voices from beyond. The complete list of features includes:

— Terrifying Deleted Scenes

— Hearing Is Believing: Actual EVP Sessions – Witness the live filming of real-life EVP recording sessions conducted at haunted locations

— Making Contact: EVP Experts – Discover the strange history and extraordinary achievements of EVP through the experiences of leading authorities

Synopsis

The year’s most disturbing thriller explores the unsettling possibility that the dead can contact us…all we have to do is listen.

When architect Jonathan Rivers (Michael Keaton) loses his wife in a tragic accident, he turns to the shadowy, unnerving world of Electronic Voice Phenomenon – communication from beyond the grave. But as he begins to penetrate the mysteries of EVP, Jonathan makes a shocking discovery: once a portal to the other world is opened, there’s no telling what will come through it.
