Based on the Japanese horror movie Kairo and written by Ray Wright, Pulse centers on a group of college students who discover that a computer hacker friend of theirs unwittingly pirated a strange wireless signal that opened a doorway for a terrifying evil to cross over into the world. As it spreads, everyone in its path is consumed, and the students must race to find a way to stop it. Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Steve Talley also star.
