Pulse

Title: Pulse

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Kristen Bell, Ian Somerhalder, Christina Milian, Rick Gonzalez, Jonathan Tucker, Samm Levine

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Status: Out on DVD/Video

Plot Summary: When Josh (Tucker) hacks into a system, he unleashes an unknown evil. Now his girlfriend (Bell) and her group of friends are trying to find a way to stop it, before it’s too late.

Review: This one was a disappointment. It starts off pretty good, the regular ‘cheap scares’ as I like to call them, and general creepiness. But towards the end it starts to get too far-fetched for its own story. The ending just didn’t match the beginning, and it all fell apart for me. Don’t get me wrong, I saw a short film on a website not too long ago that had the same premise as this movie, and it was much better. I think that the short film was good because it was just that, short. They took a good idea, drug it out for an hour and a half and ruined it with a crappy ending. These types of horror/thriller movies are becoming what the ‘slasher’ movies were to the 90’s. Let’s find a new style of thrillers, and get away from these crazy “I think I’m seeing things that shouldn’t be there!” movies.
