In Burying The Ex, all-around nice guy Max (Yelchin) and his beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene), move in together. But when Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare, Max knows it’s time to call it quits. There’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is the victim of a fatal, freak accident, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Just as Max is thinking about moving on with what could be his dream girl, Olivia (Daddario), Evelyn has returned from the grave and is determined to get her boyfriend back…even it that means transforming him into one of the undead. (Gary Reber)

Special features include upfront previews.

The 2.40:1 1080p AVC picture is digitally photographed and exhibits a clean, pristine imagery. The color palette is nicely saturated and exhibits natural hues that are rich and vibrant. Fleshtones are perfectly natural throughout, at least on real people. Contrast is well balanced with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is revealing of fine detail in facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. This is a satisfying visual image that works well. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is effectively produced with an active music score that is nicely recorded with a wide and deep soundstage that extends aggressively to the surrounds. Atmospherics and sound effects are occasionally spread throughout the soundfield, and at times pronounced when energized, to enhance effect. The .1 LFE track enhances the effects and is effective during the dance club scene. Dialogue is generally well integrated spatially and sounds intelligible throughout. This is a pleasing soundtrack with a light touch but well recorded music score and other sound elements. (Gary Reber)
