I bought this film a few months ago and can recommend it, good story to a technical film, it kinda puts you off using a computer lol, the special affects are quite cool and the acting not bad considering its people probably no one has heard of, worth a watch.

I personally found this an excellent movie.

All the acting was up to the task without being exceptional. The story, while rather linear, was interesting enough to keep everything going, and I personally found the ending quite satisfying.

I'll fill in the gap in my knowledge by watching the original soon enough, but this IS a good movie.

It proves that horror does not merely have to need to have lots of gore, but can rely on an interesting premise. Guillermo del Toro (bet I spelt that wrong) does the interesting premise beautifully; Clive Barker movies can do both.

Well worth a watch.

This is a creepy thriller/horror that tells the tale of how the internet (something we use to connect us to each other) ended up connecting us to other forces. It doesn't seems to become clear while watching the movie just what these forces are but they suck the life out of people leaving them with no will to survive, stripping them of their soul almost.

Eventually people who fall prey to these forces start killing themselves and there becomes a kind of hysteria in the town and people think it may be some kind of suicide chain. Mattie (Kristen Bell) witnesses her boyfriend go through these changes and then kill himself. His computer is sold and after receiving emails from her dead boyfriend she tracks the new owner of the computer down which brings her to Dex (Ian Somerhalder).

The pair become the main characters of the film while the others are picked off one by one by these forces which appear as ghost-like powerful visions. This means quite a few jumpy/tense moments with some rather good scenes. It's almost like a horror but more of a creepy thriller.

The film is filmed through a kind of blue filter and the buildings and scenery is very dark and hard. The acting isn't too bad here from all characters but there is nothing majorly special.

If you like horror-style movies without gore and lots of shocks then you'll probably enjoy this film. It only made me jump maybe a couple of times and I do scare quite easily. Personally it went on a little too long and didn't have a great ending, it kind of dissapointed and looked all set up for a sequel. I'd give it a 3/5.

The title notwithstanding, this film barely has a pulse of its own. What should have been an exciting thriller somehow comes across as one of the most boring apocalyptic films I've ever seen. The writers and directors were totally focused on the characters fighting to keep their wills to live from being sucked right out of their bodies - but what about my will to live? As a viewer, I was fighting to survive, as well. With electronic ghosts of ill-defined boredom closing in on me with each passing minute and a maze of loose ends to navigate along my way, I consider myself lucky to have come out the other side with my sanity intact.

So, what is this Pulse, anyway? Well, if you don't know, the movie surely isn't going to tell you - not until you're closing in on the end of it, anyway. By then, you won't even care. Sealing yourself in a small area with red tape keeps the pulse out, though, for what it's worth. Personally, I didn't have a problem with the pulse - not as long as it kept eliminating such uninteresting characters as you'll find littering this film. The most comatose of the bunch is Josh (Jonathan Tucker), the dumb hacker who manages to unleash this whole business on the world in the first place. Mattie (Kristen Bell) could use some serious training in the art of applying mascara, but you still wouldn't think the girl would be hard up enough to actually like this dweeb. Through the magic of cyberspace, Josh can't stop being annoying even in death, which leads Mattie and her gang of college buddies into this whole pulse business. Then, before you can say Bob's your uncle, the whole world is full of people either missing or walking around as empty shells of themselves (which actually sounds a lot like real life, come to think of it).

PULSE is the Hollywood remake of the Japanese horror film, KAIRO, and is relatively faithful to the source material. (The original was shot after RINGU but before JU-ON: THE GRUDGE, although here there is an absence of crawling, long-haired ghosts!)

The plot is relatively simple. Research into the use of super-wide band communications frequencies has allowed dead monstrosities to enter our world through electronic devices such as cell-phones and computers. Their desire is to regain what they have lost - life! Contact with these creatures turns ordinary people into lifeless shells who, over time, are reduced to piles of ashes. Beforehand victims suffer excruciating pain as bruises appear on their bodies and many turn to suicide to end their agony. Nobody is safe and as the terrible phenomenon spreads rapidly around the globe, travelling on the airwaves, society deteriorates and order collapses.

Although by no means a bad film, the problem with PULSE is that it offers nothing new to the horror genre and is pretty standard fare. Influences seem to have come from other works including THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS (especially the bleak ending!), THE INVASION OF THE BODYSNATCHERS and the more recent Michael Keaton film on a similar subject, WHITE NOISE.

To the film's credit, the (mainly) young cast do well and the special effects are very good, even if not unique. There are a couple of jump-out-of-your-seat moments, too, and the film is entertaining - just do not expect it to revolutionise the celluloid horror scene.

Special Features on the disc include the original theatrical trailer plus a documentary with the Director, special makeup effects designer and two producers.
