Anita Gates
The New York Times
The most horrifying thing in Kiyoshi Kurosawa's fiercely original, thrillingly creepy Pulse (released as "Kairo," or "Circuit," in Japan) is the way the ghosts move. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Neither linear nor overly explained, Pulse completely dispenses with smash cuts, cymbal crashes and other editing tricks of the horror trade. Full Review
Derek Elley
Result is always watchable, occasionally creepy and teasingly pitched halfway between a genre riff and a genuine scarefest. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Pulse works as a hypnotic meditation on contemporary alienation. Traditional horror fans, however, will search in vain for signs of life. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
An incomplete portrait of a complicated man. Full Review
