Pulse was originally released in 2006 starring Ian Somerhalder and Kirsten Bell. The film was an adaptation of the original Japanese version from director Kiyoshi Kurosawa entitled Kairo. Now, four years later this film will make its way to Blu-Ray formats September 7th. The film has been described as a "technophobic horror flick" (LA Times) and as "the spirits in Pulse don't kill you...they drain you of your life-giving energy first" (Village Voice). This reviewer has seen this film and centrally Pulse is a cautionary tale on the overuse of technology e.g. LCDs, wireless internet. The material is gripping and so is the love story between Mattie (Bell) and Dexter (Somerhalder). Fans can decide for themselves, with Vivendi Home Entertainment releasing this product in just a couple days. All the details on the release are below.

The synopsis for Pulse here:

"Pulse takes fear into new territory - the very devices we trust to get us through the day. When the dead discover a means to contact the living through electronic devices, cell-phones and computers become open gateways to monstrosities and destruction. Starring Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Christina Milian (Love Don't Cost A Thing), Ian Somerhalder (Lost) and Rick Gonzalez (Coach Carter), Pulse is loaded with terrifying thrills and gruesome special effects, and capped with an astonishing surprise ending" (UHM).
