Okay, first off I'll admit I'm biased. I've heard of EVP, and I have trouble believing that ghosts are using some complex mechanism to send us messages. It's far more likely its people hearing interference and/or people's natural tendency to find order where there isn't any.
As I tried to put aside my feelings for the phenomenon the movie is based on, I just couldn't get into it. The plot was a bit convoluted, it felt at times the plot existed solely to teach us about EVP, and not really to entertain us. Keaton did a good job acting in this flick, but in the end I really didn't care what happened to whom, and I had given up trying to guess where the plot twists would come from.
When I turn off my brain so thoroughly to watch a movie, it's never a good sign. I didn't find much passable in this movie. Some of the loud noises did manage to make me jump a bit, so I guess it was at least a little scary.
