Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The American version of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Pulse mimics the plot fundamentals, but lacks any traces of Mr. Kurosawas creepy minimalism and conceptual rigor.
Rotten: It would have been a lot scarier if the film's college kids, haunted by comrades who stare back at them from cyber-hell, looked like they had lives worth saving.
Rotten: A dumbed-down remake of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's disturbingly abstract Japanese horror film.
Rotten: This techno-themed horror film isn't nearly as scary as watching your computer crash.
This is a Classic!!
Don't bother even reading these revies from Rotten Tomatoes they are rating the AMERICAN REMAKE not the original PULSE japanese one from 2001 being displayed here!!!!
Pulse is one of the revolutionizing horror movies. Very contemporary, it wonders about the virtual world and how alienated we can become through it. It was also inspired by the classic anime series "Serial Experiments: Lain". Outstanding stuff, this is no silly copycat horror movie we see coming from asia all the time, this is quality! Go ahead and watch!
Pulse is probably one of the best Japanese horror films I have seen in a long time. Some of the scenes may be predictable but still can run a chill up your spine. If you seen Ringu, Ju-On, Audition, and other J-Horror films, be sure to watch Pulse. You will not regret it. Oh, and don't worry it has english subtitles!
