Special features include up-front previews; a 12-minute making-of featurette, "Designing The Perfect Creature"; nine minutes of commentay from cast and crew on set, costume, and visual design aspects of the movie; and two trailers.
Three hundred years ago genetic experimentation created superior beings that are neither human or monster. These beings co-existed with humankind protecting them from disease while using them for sustenance. The delicate balance between man and vampire is threatend when a renagade vampire unleashes an infuenza epidemic, which sweeps through the human population. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.31:1 DVD shows good resolution and nicely balanced contrast, but black levels are slightly milky and shadow delineation is unimpressive. The result is an image that can look undefined and lifeless, which is a shame considering how much detail there can be in the picture. Still, there are scenes that look overly soft. While the color palette is constrained, it matches the storytelling well. The picture has real promise
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
