Pulse 2 DVD Art, Tastes Like Metal?

Pulse 2 (click to see it bigger!)The American remake of Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Kairo was one of the hardest of the Japanese remakes to sit through. It was akin to being stuck in a dark, grey room while listening to a dull lecture on how technology was isolating people. All the while someone would be flashing pictures of people on their cellphones at you and repeating the phrase “death would taste like metal.”

While Pulse (review) was heavy-handed, it never really expanded on what life would be like without all of the technology we’ve come to love and depend on today. That’s where Pulse: Afterlife comes into play! From what we’ve heard, the main focus will be on humans surviving in the “wild” while also trying to avoid the ghosts that now rule wherever technology and electricity are present. Joel Soisson, director of The Prophecy: Uprising and Forsaken, sat at the helm for this one and will be present for the third Pulse film as well.

It will be hitting stores on September 30th, and DVD Active picked up the artwork thanks to Dimension Extreme.

    Is the Galactica cast doomed to star in shitty DTV horror sequels?

      Not all of ’em. Tricia Helfer is on “Burn Notice” now (pretty cool show, if I may say so); Tahmoh Penikett has a role in the hopefully-coming-sometime-soon “Trick ‘r Treat”; Aaron Douglas plays Sergeant Winter in the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still”; Callum Keith Rennie pops up fucking everywhere; and Edward James Olmos is never gonna be hard-up for good work.

      OK, so that list isn’t exactly proof against your theory. Still, I’m an optimist–I’ve gotta believe a group of actors this talented can find good work when BSG ends.
