Reviews:

” …Whispers manages to engage and hold the interest of the viewer whilst not pandering too much to tired reworked clichés. There are of course a certain amount of familiar horror tropes here but it’s a movie peppered with unexpected happenings and an ending that you wouldn’t necessarily see coming.” The Horror Asylum

Whispers offers a harrowing experience set nicely against the backdrop of supernatural elements combined against a tragic storyline. The film also offers a surprise ending which wraps the whole piece up in a clever way (though no spoilers here!). Atmospheric and haunting…” HNN

“It’s a ghost story, where all the necessary story beats fall into place, (strange noises, objects moving for no reason, secrets revealed). And that’s it. Fade out. Sometimes a generic movie can be forgiven if it’s told well. But Whispers suffers from technical flaws as well.” Horror Freak

Whispers stand out from other films of its genre because it carries a certain professionalism around it with a suspenseful storyline. The cinematography could not have been any better, and the sets/location did justice to the movie. It was unbelievably good and creepy watching the paranormal phenomenon taking place.” Hell Horror
