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
