Kairo = Pulse( Visual )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often referred to as one of the scariest films ever made, 'Pulse' tells the story of a group of young friends rocked by the sudden suicide of one of their own, and his subsequent, ghostly reappearance in grainy computer and video images. Is he trying to contact them from beyond the grave or is there something more sinister afoot? The mysterious floppy disk they find in the dead man's apartment may provide a clue, but instead launches a program that seems to present odd, ethereal transmissions of people engaged in solitaryactivities in their apartments. But there is something not quite right in the appearance and behavior of these lonely souls. Soon, there are more strange deaths and disappearances within the group, terrifying rooms sealed in red tape, and the appearance of more ghosts as the city of Tokyo - and the world - is slowly drained of life. Predating many of the Japanese horror (J-horror) films that have been re-made for American audiences (including 'The Grudge', 'Dark Water', 'Pulse' was originally purchased by Miramax in 2001 to make way for a re-make. Eschewing gore and easy shocks for a harrowing tone unique to his cinema, writer/director Kiyoshi Kurosawa has made a dense and complex film whose metaphysical and psychological resonance will last long after the chills have subsided

The story's main characters are Sato, a mild mannered sound engineer, and his wife Junko, a gifted medium. When Junko is called upon by local police to help locate a young kidnap victim, all seems well for her future career as a validated medium. When, however, Sato and Junko discover that the child locked herself in Sato's sound equipment case (while escaping the real kidnapper) and apparently suffocated in their garage, the possibility that the police will accuse her of orchestrating the entire event complicates matters significantly

Mamoru's father seeks out Yūji to try and make some sense of what happened.
