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

Nathan Fillion and Katee Sackhoff's characters Abe and Sherry go to a bar named O'Malleys. This is the same bar that is often visited by the characters of 'Two Guys a Girl and A Pizza Place'. In 'Two Guys a Girl and A Pizza Place' Nathan Fillion plays Johnny Donnelly. See more »

The main reason to see "White Noise 2: The Light" is for Nathan Fillion's quietly powerful performance as Abe Dale, a man whose family is killed and who is himself brought back from the dead. The screenwriter Matt Venne is focused mostly on exposition and in some scenes you can practically see the storyboarding ("Abe looks down. Sees himself in the shattered mirror fragments") but despite this Mr. Fillion finds ways to inject nuance and emotion into wooden and often under-written scenes. The story is most intriguing in the first half of the movie, but less so when it shifts from Abe's personal experience to a broader canvas in order to explain what the heck is going on; still, there are some nice goose-bump moments and the last ten minutes are definitely provocative and hair-raising. If you like supernatural stories and want to see Nathan Fillion show he can play a troubled, normal, non-heroic guy, you should enjoy this one.
