In an interview with Fangoria magazine, the director assured readers that key scenes from the original movie, in particular the tower jump suicide, would be retained. This scene is absent from the theatrical version. However, the scene is present in the unrated version See more »

It has to be a virus. I mean, his computer is probably still logged on. It's just hitting his address book.
They said, "Help me."
Yeah, but viruses always have some important-sounding shit. I mean, just the other day, I got one that said, "Urgent, Stone. Read me now." I mean, that's a natural occurrence. It happens all the time...
That was from me, you idiot.
Damn. That was pretty strong.

*note* If you were freaked out by the ring, this is a movie for you!*note*
Went to see Pulse today, expecting it to deliver, and it was everything I Expected, and maybe more! Pulse was another one of the movies I like to call "Electronic Horror" which involves T.V's, Cpu's, And anything else like that.
In this film you will see some things that are, putting this lightly by the way, Freeky! You'll see crap that maybe haunt you for awhile, but still keeps a great cinematic atmosphere and also keeps it fun at the same time. You'll watch People losing there will to live and also watch them... well, Go see the movie and you'll find out ^_^
Anyway, lets talk about some of the positives and negatives
+: 1. Great Directing: through out the entire film you'll see interesting angles and motions that you usually never see!
2. Interesting script: The screenplay was co-written by Wes Craven. Yea I know he's delivered some bad crap before *cough*Redeye*cough* but this may have redeemed him! OF course though, he can't take all the credit because this was originally a Jap. film, but I Know he added some thrills of his own!
At any rate, the story was awesome and it may leave you wanting to turn off your cellular Phone for awhile.
3. Decent acting: acting was a little better than normal, but some people still sucked. It was believable though!
-: 1. Some cheesiness: In true Wes Craven Fashion, some cheesiness will be detected. But it's not Full Blown like Freddy though.
2. Some Problems with details: One thing that is commonly rampant through horror films is the absence of details. Sure, some use this as a way to really make you fear the unknown, but this film should have had some more details to it. They should not give you some details and then leave figuring out the rest.
3. some annoying sound effects: Some scenes make you cringe, not because of the script, but because of the rampant annoying screeching from the background. this is a turn off.
Overall score: 7.5 Out of 10 *rounded up to 8 for the IMDb poll*
Final thoughts: Great movie considering Hollywood lately has been shoveling out crap *cough*Zoom, material girls, barnyard, ATV, anything Micheal bay, etc.*cough*. Hopefully more films this year will improve!
