Asking the viewer to believe more than the normal share of impossible things for a single day

June 10, 2005

Forgettable (and seemingly forgotten) thriller about the dangers of tainted milk. Matheson and Tilly deliver fine work in a fairly lost cause.

April 3, 2005

Um produto típico dos anos 80, desperdiça uma boa idéia em um péssimo roteiro que também sofre com a presença de uma das piores atrizes que Hollywood já gerou: Meg Tilly.

Audience Reviews for Impulse

This is like a zombie movie without the scares, and with a romance going on at the same time. It's okay, but I think they needed more time to work on the script or something, the ending is especially bad.

AJ Verser

Super Reviewer

A case where the premise was better than the actual film. Still, if it wasn't for all the erotic scenes, it would've been a decent flick.
