Pulse (Kario) (2001)
Director: Kiyoshi Kurosawa
Main Stars: Haruhiko Kato, Kumiko Aso, Koyuki
Storyline: A bunch of suicides are linked to an internet web camera that promises communication with the dead.
Review (Spoils): This movie strives on loneliness and shadows, lots of dark corner ghosts and fuzzy images. This movie lost its connection to me with the whole computer connection, maybe it is because it can cross over to a terrible computer virus or maybe it is an unholy ghost entity? Or just maybe it is because I work with computers all fucking day long and hate my joy of horror mixing with my work. There was no really bad acting or anything like that but I just could not connect to this storyline nor care to be honest. I was very bored with this film. The special effects were average as best and nothing really creeped me out with this film.
Rating: I was really hoping this would be better than the remake but unfortunately it was just as bad and maybe worse because it doesn’t have at least Kristen Bell. This film is not scary at all and you’re really missing nothing if you skip this film.
