Starting 7 years after the events chronicled
in 2006's Pulse, Pulse 3 continues the story, but may well be the worst of
Justine is 17 and miserable in the refugee
camp set up after the world is infected with a plague spread by the
internet and cell phones. Now the cities are populated by ghosts, and all
modern devices are forbidden in the camps that contain the few people left
Finding a hidden laptop, Justine makes contact
with Adam, still living in the city, and claiming to still be alive and
well. Desperate to escape her miserable existence, Justine flees to the
city, but what she finds there isn't exactly the man of her dreams.
While I didn't see the original, I found Pulse
2 to be decent horror, but this one was somewhat disappointing,
slow-moving with a very anticlimactic ending. Save it for a night when
you're really bored.
