Editorial Reviews

In today's world of modern conveniences, everything we rely on is run by electricity. But what happens if the power we take for granted turns against us? Old man Holger (Charles Tyner) knows. He claims electricity is a living presence, whose voice can only be silenced by getting rid of anything that can hear it. Bill Rockland (Cliff De Young), however, refuses to believe him. It must have been anaccident when an electric spark ruptured the gas pipe that nearly killed Bill's son (Joey Lawrence). And it's surely a coincidence when his wife (Roxanne Hart) is severely scalded by their electric water heater. But when his own power tools attack him and an electrical fire turns their home into ablazing inferno, Bill realizes Holger may have been right after all, and perhaps the time has come to finally pull the plug.

Well just as I remembered it, still the same and not regretting it one bit. Not a top of the charts show or anything like that, but a movie that will have you interested in it to the finish. A story of a boy who notices things his father misses and doesn't take notice of him. Now I could tell you all about it and that will spoil it and no surprises to ruin the movie. With no special effects to boast its ratings. But I certainly loved it for the story and acting so I rated this an A grade classic that is worth a peek at. Electricity going wild out of control yes it sounds stupid, yes it's different with ideas coming around every corner and not as mad as it sounds. Would you think it really was happening, no-one would believe or listen to you not even the electricians. A marvellous classic different in all ways so settle in for a comfortable night with a great story as you never know what's next around the corner. Enjoy!

This review is an excerpt from my book "Killer B's: The 237 Best Movies On Video You've (Probably) Never Seen," which is available as an ebook on Amazon. If you enjoy this review, there are 236 more like it in the book (plus a whole lot more). Check it out!

PULSE: What do you do--and where do you go--when your own house is trying to kill you? This suburban horror story casts a sly eye on sinister images of ordinary household items. We all take electricity for granted; the insidious center of this flick lies in investing energy itself with a malevolent intelligence, made all the more chilling by its amorphous nature and ubiquitous presence. Mesmerizing close-ups of circuits, dissolving wire wraps, and solder melting and reforming as the current reprograms the appliances make the most mundane machines appear malicious.

Pulse begins slowly, but builds into a killer thriller in the final half hour and includes some excellent effects in the finale, as the house literally holds the humans hostage. Former teen idol Joey ("Whoa!") Lawrence is cute, but Tyner, as the eccentric old electrician who provides the exposition, is the real scene-stealer. You'll probably want to leave a light on when you watch this one. Then again, maybe not...

This is a pretty '80s movie which doesn't really push any boundaries. The characters are all pretty much one dimensional stereotypes. There's the divorced dad who is trying to build a career, a new relationship, and a future with his son, in roughly that order. He's dating the generic 80's woman who has a job and is smart and caring about her step son but still has womanic moments like emotional things and screaming every now and then. And the kid who is into baseball and skateboarding, what a big surprise.

On the other hand its pretty baller to watch their house go ballistic around them and Charles Tyner plays a crazy old whack job who knows about what's going on and really sells it. He's the best actor in this thing because he's the only one obviously not taking it seriously and just having fun being nuts. The whole "intelligent killer electricity" basically lacks a motive other than torturing people to death and driving them crazy, and isn't really even a character. But it's a worthy predecessor to modern things like Final Destination and sci fi channel originals except those newer films actually made money for their backers. Which Pulse obviously didn't do.

If for some stupid reason this movie were made today, it would star some teenagers and have government-conspiricy connections and things. Instead we get Roxanne Hart, who was 36 at the time this was made but she's still authentically cute instead of being fake sexy. She has a shower scene but again its the 80s so all the nudity is shoulders and up and implied. Which is still kind of hot.

People who are jaded about horror movies would think Pulse is kind of soft and boring but if you like cheap made for TV stuff there's some pretty funny things here.

This is an old "horror" film, though I use the term loosely. I think of it more as a sci-fi thriller. A good film nevertheless. A young child (Joseph (Joey) Lawrence) parents have divorced, moved apart and remarried. He is spending summer vacation with his dad and stumbles on an eerie phenomenon which could be fatal... A pulse in the electric line!

PULSE is about electricity gone bad. A young boy named David (Joey Lawrence) travels from his mum's home in Colorado to stay w/ his dad (Cliff De Young) in California. Little does he know that a freakish bolt of lightning has unleashed an eeevil, homicidal intelligence into the electric grid! This PULSE has taken up residence in a transformer just outside David's new abode, and has already jolted a neighbor to death! I was expecting another hilarious appliances-gone-mad movie like GHOST IN THE MACHINE, and was a bit disappointed by the ultra-slow build-up and lack of killer dishwashers, but the story was fairly engaging in a sappy sort of way. Joey Lawrence was a decent actor for his age, and should have done more than become a teen semi-icon. Oh well...

A five star in my book for it's time when it came out technology was starting to bloom and was a very odd use compared to today and it scared my family at the time of release because the unknown of new technology so very cool in my book never regret buying it. It may not be the most graffic of the scary movies of it's time but it played on the fears of stuff that's new so 5 stars all the way
