Kristen BellContinuing the currenttrend of Hollywood remakes of Japanese horror films, an American version of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Pulse (Ryan's review of the original is here) will be released here in March. Though there doesn't seem to be an official website up yet, there's a trailer floating around. While I will admit up-front that I'm a total lightweight when it comes to horror (Candyman scarred me for life and I now fear the entire genre), once I got over my amusement at seeing Kristen Bell just play Veronica Mars in a different context (Tough, matter-of-fact pretty girl? Check. Computer detective work? Check. Refusing to give up, even in the face of danger? Double check.) this thing scared the bejesus out of me. Seriously - merely thinking about it gives me chills.

Could it be that the movie might actually be...good? Horror fans, take a look at this and let me know what you think - you're much better equipped to judge the movie's potential than I am.
