Enter a terrifying new dimension in communication with the dead: The Near-Death Experience. What would you do if you could tell who was about to die? Would you try to save innocent lives? After barely escaping a near-death experience, Abe Dale (Nathan Fillion, Serenity) discovers that he has been granted a mysterious ability. But using this dark gift means interfering with the natural order of life and death, a choice that comes with a heavy price. Also starring Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), White Noise 2 explores an unthinkable and evil dimension in communication with the dead.
An in-name-only sequel to the 2005 supernatural thriller with Michael Keaton, White Noise 2 mixes two well-documented paranormal experiences--EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) and NDE (Near Death Experience)--in its story of an unusual gift granted in the wake of a tragedy. The likable Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Desperate Housewives) stars as a man whose near-death experience following the murder of his wife and son grants him the ability to see a halo around those whose death is imminent. Naturally, he sets about to prevent these untimely demises, but discovers that tampering with predestination attracts the attention of sinister forces. Professionally lensed and heavy with visual effects (as well as one impressive set piece involving a falling grand piano), White Noise 2 is buoyed by Fillion and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, The Bionic Woman) as the cheery nurse who helps him deal with his grief; unfortunately, they're stuck with a dreary and overly complicated script that attempts to assimilate far too many horror movie clichés into one picture. Extras include a whopping 33 minutes of deleted scenes, interviews with real-life individuals who have endured NDE, a short making-of featurette, and a walking tour with Fillion of the allegedly haunted asylum that served as one of the film's locations. -- Paul Gaita

This movie certainly does not pickup where the original left off. It is a clean slate from the beginning. There is no slow, boring lead in. The whole story line was laid out in a clever and relatively quick fashion. It is a little confusing at first but this adds to the suspense. The special effects are good, at times, but nothing overly exciting. The jump factor of this film was a bit weak. Sure, there are some scenes that have the typical sudden flashes that make you jump a bit, but with a movie like this you would expect a bit more. My wife hates horror films that make you jump, so she was quite happy with the overall mild fear factor of this film. =o)
Overall I was quite pleased with this film and glad that I purchased the DVD for my collection. It is nearly as good as the original White Noise, but just lacks a little punch. The ending was somewhat confusing and leaves a bit to each viewers imagination. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The story keeps your attention, the directing seems good, the choice of actors and their associated performances are very good. As a comparison I think I would rate the first White Noise a 5, while I consider White Noise 2 a 4 and 1/2. It is a great film that I recommend to everyone. I guess I just didn't get the same thrill from this film as I did the original. Maybe the whole "Near Death Experience" concept just isn't quite as mysterious to me as it might be for others. I suggest you see the movie and judge for yourself. If you enjoyed the first White Noise movie, I'm sure you will not be dissapointed with this one.
Don't waste your time.
Nathan Fillion makes a totally sympathetic character. You like him and so it's easy to go along on the journey when no one else but the viewer gets exactly what he's going through or buys his story. I like paradoxical endings and this movie, like the first, has one. The theme of this series seems to be that messing with the other side before your time never ends well and it makes an entertaining enough story for me.
Like the movie "Dragonfly" it may not be a blockbuster, but it made for a good evening and I'll watch it many more times.
