“Deeply weird cinema made for deeply weird people.”
— Justin W., LETTERBOXD
Made over four years by singular filmmaker Damon Packard (REFLECTIONS OF EVIL), FATAL PULSE is an inscrutable psychedelic nightmare that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. A powerful corporate mogul is trapped in his own home by a deranged deadbeat roommate named Tobo. Meanwhile, everyone plots to kill everyone else . . . and usually do. Inspired by the corporate takeover era of the late 1980s, and the dark, atmospheric, neo-noir thrillers that came along with it, FATAL PULSE (aka NIGHT PULSE aka UNTITLED YUPPIE FEAR THRILLER) is jam-packed with Argento-esque lighting, breakneck editing, and bizarro celebrity characters ("This is my wife, Janet Jackson!”). If REFLECTIONS OF EVIL was Packard’s TAXI DRIVER, then FATAL PULSE is his GOODFELLAS.
