[White Noise 2: The Light]

UPDATE - 1/8@1:00PM: Thanks to Power Windows we now have a sample clip.

The sequel to the 2005 horror flick White Noise was recently reviewed in the UK's Guardian and the movie apparently contains a neat Rush reference. Here's the review:

A sequel to the surprisingly successful Michael Keaton I-video-dead-people movie. A near-death experience gives Abe Dale the ability to see a spooky light emanating from those about to die. The casting of Fillion and Sackhoff, from Firefly and Battlestar Galactica respectively, pays off by providing charming actors who can play this stuff seriously.

Like the first movie, it's not even slightly scary, although in the last half hour, when the high cost of tampering with fate becomes apparent, things become enjoyably frantic. The final furlong features a stunning set-piece multiple death involving a piano, genuinely disturbing surgery make-up, and a school choir singing Rush's The Spirit of Radio. If only the first hour were this unhinged.

Thanks to Counterparts member Reed Lover for the heads up.
