Films: Pulse (2006)
Location: Haunted home/Civilized Area
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Not too long from now, Japan faced the horrors of isolation and spiritual horror from the overabundance of technology. However, much like with a lot of other Japanese horror icons, the west took a stab at their interpretation. It's alright, all things considered.
History: One day, a person managed to somehow create a virus that tore open a portal between the realms of the living and the dead. Unfortunately, the spirits turned out to be rather sinister in nature, sucking out the lifeforce of any unlucky person who dared to use the tech that the ghosts travel through. Now, more than a few people are at the mercy of unkillable beings only warded off by red tape.
Notable Kills: Sucking a man through a wall.
Final Fate: Just when it seems like a counter-virus has been distributed, the system reboots and allows the ghosts to infect the entire world. Now, humanity is forced to live in safe zones where there is no tech to speak of.
Powers/Abilities: Immortality, the ability to travel through any piece of technology, sucking out people's will to live.
Weakness: They cannot enter red tape.
Scariness Factor: 5-There's really not much to say here. The ghosts are as terrifying as ever, made even worse by the fact that here, they're a bit more active, and can oftentimes twist their bodies into unholy forms. Just look at the man whose face is literally just one big mouth.
Trivia: -This film actually received 2 sequels in the same year of 2008. Them being "Pulse 2: Afterlife" and "Pulse 3: Invasion". While they do offer some degree of hope in this ghost-invested world, the canonicity of them is debatable.
-This film was actually canned several times, mainly due to a lack of willing directors. Even Wes Craven didn't consider it to be worth his time.
