For those who don't know, Pulse is a remake of a japanese movie called Kairo.

Pulse (remake) sucked balls - I believe that your version must kick its ass all over the place JasonN! :)

Well, let's hope it does. :p
(personally, I don't think the US remake will ever reach the excellence of the original Japanese film, but hopefully my fanedit makes it a better movie and is a bit closer to the bleaker tone of the original)

It's been pretty silent in here.... makes me think this edit has actually transformed into a ghost. :-?
(or maybe people just don't want to see Kirsten Bell in a horror movie :smile: )

I've never seen Pulse and don't own the DVD.
Actually, I haven't ever heard much about it.

Maybe not too many people own this?

Either that or people saw it once and decided to never buy it on DVD. :p

(heck, the only reason I ended up with the DVD is because I got it for free along with a bunch of other horror films from a friend)

Hmmm, over a month past and still nothing on this one.... makes me worry a bit about releasing any more horror-themed edits. :p
(or maybe I should let 3Raz0r handle all the horror fanedits on the site instead :smile: )
