The potential it has to be an adult thriller is ruined because it's just more teen marketed crap.
March 24, 2007
The unanswered questions in the original added to the mood, but by trying to answer even just a few of them, this Pulse just gets more confusing and less scary.

Boring youth movies are the result of boring youth characters.

...the requisite happy ending smacks of studio interference...

Aparentemente, não há aparelho moderno que seja imune à invasão de fantasmas dispostos a utilizá-lo a fim de se espalharem pelo mundo.

It helps that the hot blonde is Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars") who can basically do anything (she even sings - see "Reefer Madness") and remain effortlessly adorable and charming.

Decent horror remake with a strong cast, atmospheric direction and some genuinely scary scenes - you'll never log on to your computer again. Probably.

As the ghosts suck the life out of their victims, the audience suffers the same fate.

To add to the insult there isn't even some nudity . .

A remake that ain't an upgrade.

Don't get me wrong. This isn't a BAD film, just not particularly good.

A curiously dull Americanization of one of the finest examples of subtle, moody J-horror out there.

A handful of creepy visuals can't make up for a mountain of shortcomings.

As is frequently the case with remakes, it probably would have been better to have let the original rest in peace.

... in the ranks of J-horror remakes, [Pulse] can't compete with The Ring and The Grudge.
August 18, 2006
The film frames its horror as if the ghosts are so many Pinocchios, yearning for what seems inherently valuable to humans.

Dead on arrival.

It would have been a lot scarier if the film's college kids, haunted by comrades who stare back at them from cyber-hell, looked like they had lives worth saving.

The remake begins with the same premise and appropriates the most striking visuals, grafting them onto a more explicable but equally dull George Romero-style doomsday scenario.

The film cleverly attempts to make technology as scary as the ghosts, but those most likely to fear technology are least likely to see it.
