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

There are on average 774 near death experiences in the USA every day. 80% of people report seeing a blinding white light before being brought back from the dead. Sometimes they don't come back alone. See more »
In the scene at the children's concert, the choir is singing "The Spirit of Radio", made famous by Canadian rock band Rush. Nathan Fillion is from Alberta, and White Noise 2 was filmed in British Columbia. See more »
(at around 1 min) At the beginning of the movie, when Abe opens his anniversary gift, the watch in the box is showing the time as 9:30, but when he pulls it out of the box, the watch shows the time as 9:15. See more »
And on the third day... Christ rose again... but what about the devil?

Definitely don't let the lacklustre effort of the first White Noise film put you off seeing this creepy sequel.
Although the ties to static 'noise' from electrical appliances are stretched somewhat thinly (was this film written as a stand-alone then tied to 'White Noise' later???), this is a nice little horror film with loads of atmosphere and great performances.
Nathan Fillion (Sliver, Serenity) has a good 95% of the screen time and does a great job as a man whose family has been murdered in front of him. There are ghosts a-plenty and some nice 'can't mess with the future' themes - if you like the Final Destination movies, you're gunna love this.
Don't wait for DVD... this film is worth forking out to see at the cinema.
