Special features include commentary by director Wes Craven, producer Marianne Maddalena, and editor Patrick Lussier; two featurettes: the 12-minute "The Making Of Red Eye," and the 11-minute "Wes Craven: A New Kind Of Thriller"; a six-minute gag reel; and previews, which are shown as up-front ads.
If you want to live a long, stress-free life, eat your Grape Nuts and don't catch the Red Eye with Jackson Rippner (Murphy). Lisa Reisert (McAdams), exhausted and still doe-eyed from attending her grandmother's funeral, only wants to catch some shut eye as she returns home, but when a seemingly charming passenger threatens the Head of Homeland Security (Scalia) and her father (Cox), she pulls out all the stops (and some Alias-like moves) to save them both. For you Survivor fans, see if you can spot a castaway. (Jack Kelley)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture exhibits a pleasing quality, with sharp and nicely detailed images, satisfying depth, and natural textures. Colors are well balanced with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are also nicely rendered. There are very few distractions in the way of pixelization or edge halos. Occasionally, the picture can look a little bit soft (especially in the visual effects shots), but overall this is a pleasing visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
