In "Come To Daddy," Norval Greenwood (Wood), a privileged man-child, arrives at the beautiful and remote coastal cabin of his estranged father, who he hasn't seen in 30 years. He quickly discovers that not only is Dad a disapproving jerk, but he also has a shady past that is rushing to catch up with him. Now, hundreds of miles from his cushy comfort zone, Norval must battle with demons both real and perceived in order to reconnect with a father he barely knows. (Gary Reber)

Special features include upfront previews and a digital code.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally in anamorphic Panavision® using the Panavision Millennium DXL2 camera system and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is realistic in appearance throughout with a naturally saturated color palette with warm and rich hues. The main setting is a stilt-elevated house over the seashore with a beautifully set view, The interior is nicely detailed with excellent textural resolution—same as with the motel set. Resolution throughout is revealing of excellent detail. Contrast is well balanced, though, at times shadow detail is poor. Black levels are effectively deep. This develops into quite a visual experience as it progresses. The imagery is natural and engaging. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1.-channel soundtrack delivers an aggressively enveloping soundfield with occasional directionalized surround. Sound effects enhance the suspense and the scenes of murder. Atmospherics sound natural and realistic. At times, deep bass extends deep and punctuates the more intense segments. The music envelops the soundfield and occupies a wide soundstage, extending to the surrounds. Dialogue is intelligible and integrated spatially. The soundtrack is a good complement to the imaginative storytelling. (Gary Reber)
