Manufacturer Description

Award-winning filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa delivered among the finest entries in the "J-Horror" cycle of films with this moody and spiritually frightening movie that provides existential fear along with its shocks. Setting his story in the blossoming web and social media scene in Japan, Kurosawa's dark and apocalyptic movie predicts how technology will only serve to separate us as it grows more vital to our lives.

A group of young people in Tokyo start to experience unusual phenomena including missing out on colleagues and friends, technological breakdown, and a mystical site which asks the engaging question, "Do you want to meet a ghost?" After the unanticipated suicides of several friends, 3 complete strangers set out to explore a city which is growing more empty day by day, and to resolve the mystery of what lies within a prohibited space in an abandoned building and construction website, inexplicably sealed shut with red packaging tape.

Including haunting cinematography by Junichiro Hayashi (Ring, Dark Water), a dark and upsetting tone which lingers long after the movie is over, and an ahead-of-its-time story which anticipates 21st century disconnection and social media despair, Pulse is one of the best and most frightening accomplishments in modern Japanese scary, and a dark mirror for our modern digital world.
