"Lightning strikes more than twice"

Films: Pulse (1988)

Alias: None

Type: Unknown, possibly Alien

Location: Haunted hoome

Height/Weight: None.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: Power surges are usually best avoided for fear of causing a blackout. Here, you'll wish a blackout came sooner.

History: In the suburbs of California, a lighting strike inexplicably gives rise to a sentient surge of energy that hops from house to house, killing the inhabitants in gruesome ways. Its newest target is the house of a boy already struggling to survive having to cope with his estranged father.

Notable Kills: Kills a woman by shooting a shard at her via the garbage disposal.

Final Fate: The father earns his stripes by cutting down the telephone pole giving the pulse its power. Even a small ounce of it is destroyed when a kid wisely pulls the plug on the clock its possessing.

Powers/Abilities: Can possess anything that's electrically powered.

Weakness: Without a power source, the pulse will wither and die.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-The average home these days practically runs on electricity, so imagine an unseen power using it all to end your life. Had it not been for close calls and swift thinking, the main cast would all perish horribly.

Trivia: -Other proposed titles for this film included "Currents", "House", and "Tract".

-This film originally ran for more than two hours.
