Details Release Date: Aug 11, 2006; Rated: PG-13; Length: 87 Minutes; Genre: Horror; With: Kristen Bell and Ian Somerhalder; Distributors: Dimension Films and The Weinstein Company

As a passage to the spirit world, technology — videotape, cell phones, computer screens — has lost its novelty. In this American remake of the spooky, more-atmospheric-than-coherent 2005 J-horror thriller, the ghosts blink and crackle into existence with an electromagnetic sputter, but really, they're not so different from the gauzy, see-through spirits of yesteryear. It would have been a lot scarier if Pulse's college kids, haunted by comrades who stare back at them from cyber-hell, looked like they had lives worth saving.
