Wondering why times are missing?

Pulse (Kairo)

From Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Cure, Bright Future) comes this surprisingly brainy, incredibly creepy and slightly surreal ghost story. After one of their friends commits suicide, a group of young Tokyo residents begins experiencing a dark string of omens, including ghostly shadows and a haunted Website. Is an overcrowded afterlife forcing the dead to contact the living through high-tech means, or is this merely the precursor to something far more sinister? Kurosawa's apocalyptic horror film skillfully straddles the line between dark metaphor and all-out fright fest. The film's overwhelmingly eerie imagery is guaranteed to haunt you for months to come--plus you may think twice about logging onto the Internet after this one. In Japanese with English subtitles. 118 minutes
