Pulse ★½ 2006 (R)

Remake of the 2001 Japanese horror flick “Kairo” that features an evil website. When the unsuspecting click on the creepy images of the dead, the supernatural force behind the site invades the lives of those who log on and makes them commit suicide. Technology is bad, but not as bad as this watereddown version, which forgoes creepy atmospherics and conceptualized plot for the occasional scare. 90m/C DVD, HD DVD . US Kristen Bell, Ian Somerhalder, Christina Milian, Rick Gonzalez, Zach Grenier, Ron Rifkin, Jonathan Tucker, Brad Dourif, Samm Levine; D: Jim Sonzero; W: Wes Craven, Ray Wright; C: Mark Plummer; M: Elia Cmiral.
