Murder has a sound all of its own!
Jack Terry is a master sound recordist who works on grade-B horror movies. Late one evening, he is recording sounds for use in his movies when he hears something unexpected through his sound equipment and records it. Curiosity gets the better of him when the media become involved, and he begins to unravel the pieces of a nefarious conspiracy. As he struggles to survive against his shadowy enemies and expose the truth, he does not know whom he can trust.

If you don't think too much about the logic and lack of police investigation and go with the story it's not a bad movie. The beginning gives away the end. Not many twists for a thriller but small jigsaw pieces put together. Travolta is good in it. It's about using the media to cover up political error. A type of conspiracy.
