American version of Pulse (aka Kairo) from Kurosawa Kiyoshi

The release date for this little treat (I'd been wondering when they'd do a remake of this in the States) is supposed to be July 14th of this year. We'll see if that holds true.

Anybody else besides me and Mr Joshua, know the original film? It was very technoparanoid and incredibly creepy, but it was also one of those where at the end you go "wtf was up with (list of five things)?!" If the trend in J-horror remakes is any indication, an American remake of "Kairo" might actually give the nod to the idea of making some sense WITHOUT trying to tie it all up into some feel-good Hollywood ending. At least, that's my hope.

Anybody want to make plans to try to see this one in groups as well? (It's got Boone from LOST in it, Tom!)

IMDb entry for the film is here~ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454919/
