With such sensitive ears, you should have heard the noises of your movie sucking.

At the very least a burgeoning master of spookery, Brad Anderson takes the Masters of Horror series into the Twilight Zone with Sounds Like, about a grief-stricken middle American's struggle with hypersensitive hearing that magnifies his stress and pushes him towards psychosis. It's one of the niftiest MoH entries and there's much fun in watching Chris Bauer crack up but the film does feel a bit longer than an hour. Stil, it's effective, with the best leading performance of the series.

Thriller, yes. Horror, no. Well, except for the maggots. A modern take on the Tell-tale Heart...with more maggots.

The always good Chris Bauer did an excellent job of carrying this one, and the production quality was pretty high. The basic story has been done to death though. It added a little here and there, sure, and it has something to say but it's still A Tell-Tale Heart. Once you figure that out, you sleepwalk your way through it and call every curve ball and slider they throw before they throw it.

Although I didn't think it was very good, it was short and very memorable.

So-so addition to the Masters of Horror series. The ending scenes are fairly horrifying, especially when you find out what the sound is.

brad anderson is not a person i think of as a director of horror, but he does weave a good plot, this is a poor example though. he does, however make a great portryal of the symptoms of social anxiety, even though most must think such a thing is trivial. those who have not experienced it would see this as a terribly underwhelming film, those who have, would only remember more meaningful fears.
