Before The Grudge, before Dark Water, there was Pulse, one of the scariest films ever made from the master of Japanese horror, Kiyoshi Kurosawa. At Sunny Plant Sales in Tokyo, a group of friends are concerned about Taguchi, a colleague who owes them a computer disc for a project and hasn't been returning phone calls. One employee, Michi, goes to his apartment to check on him. One minute, Taguchi seems fine; the next he has hanged himself. Michi gets out of there, taking the disc, which may contain the most devastating computer virus ever… When Taguchi subsequently reappears as a ghostly presence on their computer and video screens, is he trying to contact his friends from beyond the grave or is there something more sinister afoot? Soon, there are more sudden deaths and disappearances within the group, terrifying rooms sealed in red tape and the appearance of more ghosts as the city of Tokyo - and the world - is slowly drained of life.
