Pulse (1988)

Pulse is a wonderful little curiosity from the late 1980s. HBO used to rerun it all the time, but as a horror film it doesn’t have much gusto. Still the film is worth a look for nostalgia alone. Joey Lawrence plays David, who is visiting his father from Colorado, where he lives with his mother (divorce was a big theme in 1980s films). David begins to experience strange happenings and in true horror film fashion, the mysteries escalate. Only an old man, memorably played by Charles Tyner (The Outlaw Josey Wales), knows the truth. Joey also meets Stevie, a young boy from the neighborhood, who is played by Joey’s real life younger brother, Matthew. The interaction between the two brothers is fun to watch, and watching little Matthew say “that was bad” all the time always makes me chuckle. Video wise, Columbia gave this disc a surprisingly good looking 1.78:1 anamorphic transfer which was supposedly mastered in high definition. This was a welcome surprise since I didn’t expect such a neglected movie to get a release at all, let alone an anamorphic transfer. Audio is Dolby stereo which is acceptable. There are unfortunately no special features. Pulse is an oft-neglected film from the 1980s that is worth a look if you’re a horror fan or simply an 80s movie junkie. Some might say it is boring but as a B movie fan, I am thrilled this is available on DVD.

Pulse ... a late 80s classic
