  Leaps of logic, or its total absence, can be the undoing of a film, especially a fantasy that depends on a willingness to accept the impossible. If there's internal consistency, it can work. So "White Noise," which shows initial promise with its premise of electronic messages from the grave, fumbles its chance to be truly scary and involving by lapsing into incoherence. The plot hinges on the evocation of something known as EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomenon, which proposes that the living can hear and see the voices and faces of the dead in the white noise of radio and TV static. A lethargic Michael Keaton is Jonathan, a thriving architect in the Pacific Northwest. His second wife Anna (Chandra West) is a gorgeous, successful author. His child by his first wife is a cute little guy. It's an idyllic life, which, in a horror movie, means trouble is afoot. Someone near and dear to Jonathan dies, and his grief is overwhelming. Thus, when his boom box and cell phone start acting weird and a portly stranger tells him that the late loved one is trying to contact him through these ordinary household items, Jonathan is all ears and eyes. Jonathan meets a woman (Deborah Kara Unger) who experienced a similar loss and believes that she's been in touch with the other side. Soon, he's glued to the tube, and the network is ABC — the Afterlife Broadcasting Company. There's a murky, moody tenor to "White Noise," but few shocks and less sense.
