Beyond extraordinaire horror movie. Recommend it.
When I saw this movie with my sister in the theater, we were both shocked to see such a terrifying scenery, that we literally just jumped the moment the scene happened. Yet, we did like it. For those of you who are fans of Nathan Fillion, I'd recommend this movie.

Fizzles after Fillion Comes Back From Near Death Trip!
Making an attempt to tie together the first White Noise with the sequel really didn't make that much sense to me, however, I tried my best to buy into this.
It usually would probably be better to just totally forget about the first film (which is pretty easy to do) and skip the the sequel and just think about it as a perfectly new stand-alone film called "The Light". For some reason the writers worked hard to connect the films together with this "I need to contact you from the other side E.V.P. Phenomena" mentality. plot is basically the paranormal aspect of the first one meets religious overtones. Abe Dale (Nathan Fillion) is a hardworking family man. He decides to take his wife (Teryl Rothery) and son (Joshua Ballard) to eat some breakfast, so they go to a diner in the city. All of a sudden, a mystery man enters the diner, pulls out a gun and kills Abe's family right in front of him, then the man kills himself. Before the man killed Abe's family, his wife was muttering some strange Latin words: Tria Mera, almost as she was possessed. 3 months later after the tragic event, we see Abe in depression. He overdoses on some pills, and next thing you know, he is dead. After having a near death experience, Abe realizes that he can see frequencies which the dead try to communicate with the living, and that he can see which person is going to die from a ridiculous, violent accident. The beginning is very interesting and not that bad, but when the religious overtones start, the movie turns into just another bland and senseless supernatural thriller with a bad ending.
The film moved along nicely until the whole "devil's hand" & "Third Day" thing crops up. The whole film breaks down for me. The driving point could have been more convincing if you had just stood on the premise that those who are saved become killers themselves without the confusing references to the devil and Christianity. No wonder people are so messed up. Now please explain to me again why survivors become possessed? Is Satan upset that he missed a soul he couldn't take anyway? Why do survivors kill? Who knows! it's a supernatural mystery in a horror film. If this film refers to a mysterious "third day" against a backdrop of Christianity, how does a thinking viewer refrain from thinking that this is some sort of Christ reference who supposedly rose from the dead on the third day: apparently without becoming a possessed killer? Give me a break! The writing gets lazy on this point and kills the momentum of the film deader than dead. The scenes where Abe starts to descend into a paranoid schizo seemed stupid and childish. Fillion can act, but he lacked vigor when with his family he sheepishly stared (as in a daze) in the diner as well as on his home movie reels. His grim tone seemed off in the home movies and his family's reactions seem odd, almost like he really didn't care for them sincerely. Fillion tries to maintain his whipped dog look but just can't. One scene while talking with his friend after the shooting, he slips a bit out of saddness and seems happier than ever when talking about the whys and wherefores of his family getting randomly shot by a psycho. That's Fillion. He's such a light-hearted jokester that you can tell he has problems being grim and serious. Light moments include Katee Sackoff's romantic interest with Fillion upon initial hospital interaction.
I'm going to give this film a 3/5 for just the N.D.E. tunnel scene alone.

White Noise 2
I am an avid movie collector and I have the first White Noise and it is strange, but I feel if I have the first of anything, I have to have any that go along with it. I know, weird, but, the movie...It isn't as good as the first one and doesn't have a lot of big names like the first, However, it holds it own and can hold your attention. It is good and I don't regret buying it.

A must see -better than the first!
I was skeptical about it because usually if you dont care much for the first movie the second isnt any better. I actually think the White Noise 2 is much better than the first! I like the idea that the character almost dies has an out-of-body experience and comes back with a gift. He tries to help prevent someone from dying not realizing that if he saves them-they end up killing-so he decides to try to make it right. The movie is worth the watch!
