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

It's fun, it's scary and worth checking out
28 February 2007 | by (Highlands, Scotland) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of the horror films that favour 'scares' over 'gore' this film is definitely worth seeing. I've always been partial to scary films, even if means hoovering up the popcorn next day, and White Noise 2 is no exception.

I was on board with Abe right from the start, owing to a superb performance from Nathan Fillion as the husband/father who one moment is enjoying his blissful family life, and the next is thrown into complete shock when he loses them in a fast and apparently meaningless manner.

As the story progresses, Abe attempts suicide at the thought that his family died because he did nothing to save them. After he is brought back from the dead it becomes clear that Abe can now see auras around people who are about to die, and finds a new purpose to his shattered life as he tries to save them, only to discover that there could be darker forces at work.

There are plenty of scary moments, especially when Abe uncovers the truth about the people he's trying to save, and there's a race against time to finish what he's started.

Definitely worth checking out on DVD.
