Pulse


Another American remake of a Japanese horror flick, which bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ring series. After a young student commits suicide, his friends come to realise that he is trying to communicate with them from the other side, via emails, SMSs, etc. It seems that his activities had opened up a doorway to the Evil beyond, and now that Evil is trying to kill all of humanity. It's up to his friends to stop this.

92 minutes.
No persons under 16.
Detective/Mystery, Horror, Thriller.
