Storyline

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

Trivia

The movie's predecessor White Light was critically panned by critics but was a box office success. This sequel ironically was well received by critics but failed to recuperate at the box office. See more »

Goofs

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 »

An interesting concept, but could have done more.
6 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie has the potential to be a good horror. However, the typical flashing, grey type ghosts and predictable scares are disappointing. Why Hollywood continues to make high-budget horrors with these effects baffles me? They aim at viewers with weak dispositions rather than real horror fans. Hollywood needs to have a good look at foreign horror films and learn a lesson.

Nathan gives a good performance and in my opinion is the back bone to the entire movie. If they expanded on the dogmatic storyline a little more, it could have been more interesting.

I recommend this movie as a 'no-brainer' horror flick that will leave you fairly satisfied.
