Verdict on Noise
Noise is a mystery thriller following a family returning to one of their childhood homes. They are looking to start a new quieter life away from the busy environment with their first child. However, learning about the past only opens up old wounds and nightmares they thought they had escaped from.
This movie does a great job of displaying the paranoia of an unknown mystery and the stress of raising a baby. It shows a father starting to dive into an isolated madness and the strain it is placing on his own relationship. The movie is filled with regret after making an impossible decision that drives everything forward. We get strong performances from the whole cast that only add to the uneasy nature of everything we see unfolding.
Where to Watch: Noise is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Noise is an intense mystery thriller.
