I think that Japanese horror is the best kind of horror, and is why all the American movies that we see are basically replicates of them. The themes of hair, sounds, and the overall mood of the movies are very appealing in the sense of preeminent fear. I believe since we as Americans have such a different culture than the Japanese, the movies we watch are much different weird movie with many odd characters such as the guy who kept popping up out of nowhere. I like how the movie focused on something we see in everyday of our lives such as a spiral and how something simple can turn into an obsession where people fear it. Pulse also portrayed many themes of horror that we fear such as the ghosts and darkness. I personally remember going to see the American version in theaters and was freaked out, and was even more scared during the Japanese version.
