Electronic Voice Phenomenon - Movie Review Example
Electronic Voice Phenomenon or "EVP", is a phenomenon which "occurs when the voices of a Spirit interrupt an Electro Magnetic Field, "EMF.", so in turn using audio tape i.e. from a micro cassette recorder reveals these voices where as before they could not be heard by a human ear." ("E.V.P.")…
In the movie, Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze play a happy couple who are deeply in love. After Sam (Swayze) is murdered, he finds himself trapped as a ghost, and in order to warn his wife Molly about the dangers that face her, he communicates through Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg), using Mediumistic Communication. Oda Mae is the only one who can hear Sam, and in knowledge of this she helps him by using herself as a means of communication between Sam and Molly. Unlike EVP, Mediumistic Communication does not require an audio recorder. The similarity, however, is that in order for the ghost's voice to be heard, it needs to first transfer through the proper form - in this case a psychic.
