Bob Weinstein canceled the film considering it to be too similar to The Ring. See more »
The movie is supposedly set in Ohio. The telephone area code (818) for the rental office of Josh's now vacant apartment is actually for the San Fernando Valley, California (and surrounding areas.) Furthermore, Zeigler's Columbus Zip Code should be 43201 (not the made-up 41273) and 7th Ave street numbers only go as high as the 3600's (not 13124). Plus the actual street is not full of multi-storied apartment buildings designed in the Eastern Bloc brutalist architectural style. Dexter's Weymouth Dr. street address (from his bounced check) is fictitious, but its Zip Code (44101) is indeed in Cleveland. See more »
It was your friend's computer. Did he get off on the stuff? Was he shooting those videos and selling them on-line? What was he doing?
Josh tied a phone cord around his neck and hanged himself - that's what he was doing?

We went to see PULSE yesterday afternoon (got to the theater too late for DESCENT). I have not seen the original KAIRO for comparison. So, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen, and not the best. Yes, it was slow to start and get to the point. But IMO it had a creepy, dark atmosphere (god, if I lived there I'd want to commit suicide in any case), the visuals weren't bad, and it had a few good scares. Unfortunately, it also depended on VOLUME to enhance the scare. If you're more of a gore fan, then it's probably not the movie for you. The movie may not be worth the price of a ticket, but I think it's worth a rental. Eh, I'm just your average moviegoer and don't watch movies to analyze them to death. I even liked The Grudge. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
