Based on the Ed Gein case, a deranged rural farmer becomes a grave robber and murderer after the death of his possessive mother, whose corpse he keeps (among others) as his companion in a decaying farmhouse.
An intelligent pulse of electricity is moving from house to house. It terrorizes the occupants by taking control of the appliances, either killing them or causing them to wreck the house in an effort to destroy it. Then it travels along the power lines to the next house, and the terror restarts. Having thus wrecked one household in a quiet neighbourhood, the pulse finds itself in the home of a boy's divorced father whom he is visiting. It gradually takes control of everything, badly injures the stepmother, and traps father and son, who must fight their way out. Written by

When David first arrives at the house a mic is visible for a moment above him and Ellen. The mic then pulls away being hidden by an archway. See more »
It ain't a thing, it's a signal...... a pulse, kinda like a voice. So what you've got to do is to get rid of anything in your house that might have ears to hear it.

When the Columbia Pictures logo is shown before the movie starts, there's the rather distinct sound of a flame burst which is dubbed into the soundtrack as the torch on the Columbia logo ignites. This is a reference to the Pulse in the film taking control. See more »
Entertaining but not believable. Foul language uncalled for.
Okay, so the power generating conspiracy is set to wipe out customers one by one and make them appear to be crazy in the process. An entertaining sci-fi movie which is fast and loose with the physical and material matter. Such as the natural gas pipe fatigued due to sun light heating it; total BS. While the house repair contractor was great, the TV repairman with his foul language and familiarity was completely out of place. Be that as it may, the actors did reasonable portrayals in what one has to consider a typical B grade Hollywood horror/sci-fi movie of no redeeming value.
