Pulse (2006) Review:

Pulse is a remake of the 2001’s Japanese movie of the same name (or sometimes referred to as Kairo), and is about a ghost entity that takes hold of computers and infect people via the network, removing from them their will to live.

The Japanese original was bit confusing storywise, but did have a very disturbing atmosphere. This remake is the complete opposite. The writers (which include Wes Craven) did a very good job at re-writing the story so that it is actually possible to understand it perfectly at first watch. They shed light on a couple of obscure points such as the exact nature of the entity and what they really do to people. On the less bright side, the movie lacks punch. Thereee are only few good ghost scenes (I especially like the one with the washing machine), but the atmosphere is the one of any other average American horror movies. Maybe it is the characters who lack personality, or maybe it is the predictability of the ghost apparitions, but the movie never manages to be truly scary, nor gripping.
