PULSE 2 picks up from PULSE. Ghosts have found a way to come back through computers, wi-fi, and cell phones. They have
taken the life forces from humans who in turn come back as ghosts after the infection kills their body in some way. The cities
are deserted and humans are fleeing to areas where no cell towers exist or a signal can get to. Stephen (Jamie Bamber) looks
for his daughter Justine, but his dead ex-wife wants the kid back. Then you have the woman that Stephen dumped his marriage
for and his ex-wife went nuts. Stephen just wants his daughter safe and keep his ex-wife away from her. Then you have the
nutjob who dresses in red (the only color the ghosts can't get past) who is trying to find a solution to the ghost problem
(probably something that will be resolved in PULSE 3). The only downfall of the script is the story of the father who has
a crazy dead ex-wife and the guy's bitchy girlfriend. The atmosphere is great in PULSE 2 and a father's need to protect his
daughter. PULSE 2 isn't as good as the two PROPHECY films that Soisson did.
SPECIAL FEATURES: The two deleted scenes dodn't amount to much even though the first does give an explaination about the
ghosts and ghost infection in the PULSE universe. The sneak peek for PULSE 3 is also included (PULSE 3 comes out at the
end of December).
Then the feature audio commentary by Writer/Director Joel Soisson, Producer Michael Leahy, Co-Producer Christian Agypt, Line
Producer Ron Vecchiarelli, Editor Kirk Morri, Makeup Effects Supervisor Gary J. Tunnicliffe, and VFX Supervisor Kevin O'Neill
goes into the technical side of the production. PULSE 2 does have a lot of digital compositing of backgrounds.
FINAL ANALYSIS: PULSE 2 isn't bad. It provides the right amount of dread and I wonder what will happen in PULSE 3.
