The family man Abe Dale is having lunch with his wife and son in a restaurant, when a man kills them in front of Abe and shoots himself in the mouth. A couple of days later, the grieving Abe misses his family and commits suicide ingesting many pills at home, but is rescued by his friend Marty Bloom and saved by the doctors. His Near Death Experience makes him see white light in some people and to hear Electronic Voice Phenomena, i.e., manifestations of voices of ghosts or spirits through static on electronic devices. Soon he discovers that the white light means that the person is going to die, and Abe saves three lives including his nurse Sherry Clarke. While watching a video recorded by his son, Abe finds that the killer had saved the lives of his wife and son three days before the murder. He investigates the incident and finds that when you save, you must kill; otherwise many innocents will die three days later. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


William MacDonald is named "Dr. Karras" in the movie. Karras was too the name of Jason Miller in The Exorcist (1973), the masterpiece supernatural and horror movie. See more »


The phrase "Tria mera" isn't proper greek, nor is it how "third day" is in the Bible. In greek "third day" is "triti mera". "Tria" means three and "triti" means third. The actual phrase from the bible is also "triti mera". Furthermore, if you try to turn "Tria mera" to numerical value using the greek numericals, you get 557 and not 666. Using the movie's numerical values, "triti mera" would have a value of 1074. However, "Tria Mera" does work if you take into account that the numerical values of letters are different for lowercase vs. uppercase. See more »

Very good... for the first 3 quarters.
7 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting anything too good but i was pleasantly surprised. This is fast paced, seems fairly believable and was genuinely creepy in places. The acting was pretty good too and you really felt for the characters. There were some nice twists and the film moved along at a nice pace.

I would have absolutely loved this if only it had a better/different ending. To me it just didn't make any real sense for the last few minutes and what sense i could make of it left too many loose ends and unanswered questions.

Still it deserves 8 of out 10 for being a superb film for the most part.
