(2001) dir Kyoshi Kurosawa w/Haruhiko Katô, Kumiko Asô, Koyuki, Kurume Arisaka Masatoshi Matsuo, Kôji Yakusho [119 min; 35mm]
Absolutely one of the most unnerving and terrifying visions of the collision between the spirit world and technology comes at the hands of Japan’s master of suspense, Kyoshi Kurosawa. In KAIRO, a group of young Tokyo-ites begin to experience strange encounters in a mysterious online chat. When these encounters lead to their suicides and the emergence of ghosts into the real world, a desperate race against the unknown begins.

Staff Pick: Brandon, Greg

“There are very few moments in Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s fiercely original, thrillingly creepy horror movie that don’t evoke a dreamlike dread of the truly unknown.” – Anita Gates, New York Times

“Where the average Japanese horror flick is petulant and nasty, Pulse is dolorous, shivery, and surreal.” – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

“Whether you take it as horror show or social commentary (or both), this is sublimely terrifying stuff.” – Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
