Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The presence of Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber is the main selling point of Pulse 2: Afterlife, a direct-to-DVD sequel to 2006's Pulse, which was itself a remake of the popular Japanese horror film Kairo. Set in a macabre future world where the ghosts of the first film--which wreak havoc on the living via phone lines and computer connections--have now taken control of whole cities, Bamber stars as a father in search of his missing daughter, who may have disappeared into one of the spirit-plagued metropolises. With such an intriguing premise, it's a disappointment to watch it unfold so ploddingly in the hands of Joel Soisson, a director/producer who's made a name for himself by releasing unwarranted sequels to horror movies (White Noise 2, Mimic 2, Dracula 3: Ascension). The effort is further muddied by some atrocious green screen effects that betray their artifice immediately upon viewing. Ultimately, Pulse 2 is an unnecessary sequel that neither improves upon its predecessor nor inspires interest in a follow-up--which is already in the works, as indicated in the supplemental features. Soisson and his production team are featured on a lively if inconsequential commentary track; a pair of deleted scenes highlight the pervasive nature of the film's green-screen effects. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Gallactica) stars in this terrifying sequel that picks up where the original Pulse left off. The dead have found a way back to our world - through cell phones and WiFi - and the human survivors have taken to remote areas to escape. When a young girl goes missing, her father must return to the city to battle her mother's vengeful ghost, along with a host of other horrifying ghouls. Intense, suspenseful, and terrifying, Pulse 2 will frighten you straight through to its shocking ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pulse 2: Afterlife........ February 17, 2009
Format:DVD
The events of Pulse 2:Afterlife happens right after the events in the first film. The ghosts end up invading and are claiming lives like you wouldn't imagine. Survivors take shelter in remote parts of the country where wireless communication signals cannot reach. Our hero travels to a ghost-infested city to see if his daughter is still alive. He finds her but gets more than he bargains for. That's where the story begins.

Like the first movie, I didn't find too much bad about the sequel. It kept my interest til the end but, sadly, this movie was uninspired and fell flat on delivering the thrill and chills that a Japanese horror film story would. The look of the ghosts was horrible(just grease paint and actors trying to look scary), nothing like the first film. In this film, they are flickering tv images. No spooky looking ghosts here, folks. I thought we'd get treated to some good special features, at least, but all we get are commentary, two deleted scenes and a quick look at Pulse 3. After this movie, I'm not so sure I'll be returning for the third installment. We'll wait and see.

The only thing I can suggest is you rent this one. To buy? well- if it's cheap in a bargain bin somewhere....but I wouldn't pay full price for this. While it was a decent for a low budget movie, it didn't WOW me like the first one did.

1.0 out of 5 stars i was forced to give one star October 30, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie was horrific (yeah, i was scared, scared that this was the worst movie I have seen in ages!!!) and barely stuck with the first movies concept. The plot didnt make much sense and even a secondary plot was started and never completed...seems like they just made a movie to just be making one. Me and my bestfriend wanted to poke our eyeballs out and couldnt wait for it to be over...but we are finishers, we wanted to give it a chance considering how much we liked the first Pulse. I would tell the people who made this movie...try again

2.0 out of 5 stars Tolerable - Thats all that can really be said October 5, 2008
Format:DVD
Pulse 2 picks up where the original movie left off. IF you know where that is, you're doing better than most. Stephen, a man on the run from his ghost of an ex-wife, is searching for his daughter Justine, along with his wife. Theres also a sequel plug involving the only intelligent cast member, who learned the fine art of paper mache and dyeing to be able to walk outside without getting soul yanked. The subplot starts and ends like a phantasm, almost flitting over the surface, cameoed from a as unreleased chapter.

The movie orinigally follows Michelle, Stephens dead ex-wife. If you can't pick up on the fact that shes dead 4 minutes into the movie, the rest of it will be a rollercoaster thrill ride.

The filomography is very, very strange. I almost hazard to guess the did 5/6ths of it with CGI, painting in backgronuds for sets that they should've easily been able to get or build. Either that, or they have some new funky camera setup I've not encountered before.

The acting is the only thing that brought this up to two stars. Stephen and Michelle had decent players that could carry an otherwise bad script, and several of the sceen actors and extras were also rather good. While several scenes are odd to begin with, they make more sense once you know they're dead. There are a couple absolute dog scenes, but only one grauitous nudity scene, which, considering thats how movies like this make up their bottom line, seemed to show a suprising amount of restraint.

Special effects were nonexistant, and papered over from the original movie. There were a few half decent startles, but don't waste more than a rental fee.

Format:DVD
I hate remakes, KAIRO (Pulse) was a Japanese horror film that is quite iconic despite its slow-moving screenplay but it managed to generate a calculated, darkly sinister meditation on life and death with a disturbing denunciation with technology as a destroyer of living humanity. Kiyoshi Kurosawa's defining horror epic revolves around the approach to mortality as seemingly random build ups of related and unrelated events; brought about by a website that brings contact to the supernatural world. 2006's U.S. remake "Pulse" misunderstood Kurosawa's main premise and thereby resulted in a film full of creative misunderstanding. In Kairo the science was only secondary, it was more about mortality. "Pulse" shouldn't have been an unlimited "night and weekend" visual feast of cell phones and computers. This happens a lot of times when American filmmakers attempt to remake an Asian horror film.

Sure, PULSE 2: Afterlife isn't a remake of an Asian horror feature. It only expands on the idea of the U.S. remake of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's KAIRO. Directed and written by Joel Soisson (Mimic 2), the sequel isn't really a major visual spookfest, it does attempt to pull something perceivably new out of the bag; the problem is, it suffers from plot inconsistencies and horror movie clichés.

The world had been reshaped due to the emergence of ghost via the internet. Cities have been deserted, and the few survivors have relocated in small camps, in areas believed to be `dead zones'. Survivors leave behind electrical devices in their relocated areas. Ghosts now wander the Earth in the form of electrical impulses; they continue to haunt their homes and some are unaware that they are dead. Stephen (Jamie Bamber) must now find a way to save his daughter Jusitne from her dead mother Michelle.
