Movie Info

Household appliances are generally useful and beneficent items, and most of us who own them take them for granted, but should we? This sci-fi thriller shows what happens when electricity gets a mind of its own, becomes evil and turns every-day gadgets into evil killers.

Audience Reviews for Pulse

wow. I was ecpecting your basic paper-thin characters and cheesy moments you find in your basic B-movie, but I was wrong! I mean I like B-movies, but most of them are not good movies, just fun ones. But it had good characters and good acting and some creepy parts.

This just a haunted house story placed in the realm of technological terror. I was expecting more scares, but it does have a nice creepy feeling to it, and good special effects.

Aww the Lawrence brothers were so cute as little kiddies. Even for an 80's horror it's not that bad, it's kinda lame but it could totally be worse.
