The 1988 shocker makes its UK blu-ray debut in February.

A cult hit on its VHS release back in 1988, director Paul Golding's Pulse sees a family (Cliff De Young, Roxanne Hart, Joey Lawrence) menaced when their home's formerly innocuous electrical appliances turn against them.

Pulse will make its UK blu-ray debut courtesy of Eureka Entertainment on February 22nd, 2021.

Extras include a new audio commentary by author and film historian Amanda Reyes and video essay by writer and film historian Lee Gambin. The initial print run of 2000 copies comes with a collector's booklet featuring a new essay by film scholar and author Craig Ian Mann and a limited edition slipcase.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

In every second of every day, it improves our lives. And in a flash, it can end them.

In today’s world of modern conveniences, everything we rely on is run by electricity. But what happens if the power we take for granted turns against us? Old man Holger knows. He claims electricity is a living presence, whose voice can only be silenced by getting rid of anything that can hear it. Bill Rockland (Cliff De Young; Shock Treatment, Flight of the Navigator) however, refuses to believe him. It must have been an accident when an electric spark ruptured the gas pipe that nearly killed Bill’s son (Joey Lawrence). And it’s surely a coincidence when his wife (Roxanne Hart) is severely scalded by their electric water heater. But when his own power tools attack him and an electrical fire turns their home into a blazing inferno, Bill realises Holger may have been right after all, and perhaps the time has come to finally pull the plug!
