A modern and unrelentingly tense psychological thriller based on a theory of the origins of shortwave radio frequencies, Shortwave is an unnerving reminder that some stones are best left unturned.

Really?
30 April 2018 | by djhoschmanSee all my reviews

So the Storyline sounded very Good. But thats all. The Actors are terrible, and not B Movie like terrible.. Absolutely terrible. It started ok, but went downhill in no time. Almost nothing in this Movie is remarkable or any good.

If you want to see a Movie that puts you asleep, well this is your Movie. But if you except something like White Noise with good Actors and a mediocre Writing, stay away from this.

I have seen hundreds of Movies with an Rating @ 4 who are way better than this time stealing "insert offensive content here" Movie.
