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

(at around 22 mins) Abe's friend says at one point "That sure sounds like some kind of Captain Tight Pants b*** s*** to me." In the "Firefly" episode Firefly: Shindig (2002) Kaylee refers to Mal (Nathan Fillion) as "Captain Tight Pants". See more »
Biblical Greek is called "koine" Greek. It was the language of the marketplace throughout the Greco-Roman world. Depending on the case of the noun (assumed by adjectives as well), the words for "third day" are "trite hemera". "Mera" is a total corruption. See more »

There are a lot of great things to be said about this movie, but that it deserves a 10 is definitely not one of them. Although the movie was paced well there are many holes in the storyline and in the plot also.
Nathan Fillion and Katie Sackhoff do very good jobs with their characters. As for caring about the characters you really don't get to know them that well aside from Abe.
The end of this movie well lets just say it borders on the cheesy and it left me thinking "what the".
There are many places that you will think "why did you do that" and "that was just mental" because it is in these areas that common sense should prevail, however that is not the case, and can be very frustrating. The movie at times is a little cliché, using cheap tricks to get cheap chills.
I felt i had to comment on this movie because of its 10 star rating when it is far from.
Watch this movie for sure however don't go into it as did expecting the best horror flick of the year and only getting an above average movie.
