Insultingly bad at times, its only saving grace is the fact that director seems to be ever-so-slightly mental.

Expecting you to believe a lot while borrowing from many ghoulish sources, genre fans will find plenty to enjoy even if there isn't enough to love.

[T]he script does work in one good -- and by "good" I mean "cheap and implausible" -- Firefly reference...

A few cheap jolts, a handful of clever ideas, and just enough energy and creativity to make it across the finish line.

White Noise 2 is pretty much everything the original film wasn't: genuinely exciting, well made, competently acted, and contains a payoff that remains in the realm of easy digestion.

Audience Reviews for White Noise 2: The Light

This one is better than the first one. I liked the ending.

White Noise 2: The Light is slightly better than the first film. It could/should have been much better as the story was much stronger. It was certainly more entertaining than watching Michael Keaton watching TV for 90 minutes anyway. The problem was, quite typically in recent sci-fi/sudo-horror/paranormal dramas, was the believability factor. Seeing dead people, fine, seeing 'The light', no problem with that, but the little things such as being left in the office of your wife and sons killer by his wife 'Because I'm sure you'd like to be alone' er, no, not buying that. It's these little details that can ruin a film for me. That and the rather silly ending that undoes a lot of good work anyway. Also, what the hell has happened to the usually up-beat, almost hyper-actively cool Nathan Fillion? He's positively lethargic in this film. A shame but I'll get over it, I guess it was better than I expected due to the fact that most sequels of average horrors aren't exactly known for their Oscar potential.

Slightly better than it's predecessor, White Noise The Light has very little in common with it's older sibling. This time the film is more concerned with being exciting, creepy and disturbing. It mostly pays off. More of a super-hero movie, where Fillion can sense who is about to die. The film has a wonderful twist and plays on the idea of meddling in matters of fate. Unfortunately, there are just too many small moments of cheap/corniness. Had it not been made as a sequel to White Noise, it could have been more free to do it's own thing and have it's own style.
