Deep Focus has launched a viral site for the upcoming film Pulse from The Weinstein Co. Pulse is the story of a group of friends who begin receiving strange electronic messages from a dead friend. Eventually they discover the dead are trying to come back to life via internet connections and other electrical conduits. (I reviewed the trailer here.)
The site, titled you are now infected, is stocked with videos and pictures but has room for more. Ian Schafer, who dropped me an email about this launch and who is the president of Deep Focus, says the site will evolve between now and the movies launch date of March 3, 2006. This is a pretty cool site and hopefully will get a bunch of buzz for the flick.
By the way, the movie stars Kristen Bell, star of Veronica Mars which I just started watching on DVD. Fantastic show. I’ve only watched the first three episodes and I’m completely hooked.
