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

(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 »

Goofs

(at around 1h 6 mins) The phrase "Tria mera" isn't proper greek, nor is it how "third day" is in the Bible. In greek "third day" is "triti mera". "Tria" means three and "triti" means third. The actual phrase from the bible is also "triti mera". Furthermore, if you try to turn "Tria mera" to numerical value using the greek numericals, you get 557 and not 666. Using the movie's numerical values, "triti mera" would have a value of 1074. However, "Tria Mera" does work if you take into account that the numerical values of letters are different for lowercase vs. uppercase. See more »

Better-Than-Average Supernatural Thriller
4 June 2007 | by sounds-5See all my reviews

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.
