"Snatchers" follows a status-obsessed high school teenager who loses her virginity and finds herself pregnant the next day...with an alien. Senior year is going to rule! Thanks to her relationship with clueless hunk Skyler (Fryberger), Sara (Nepi) is totally in with the cool girls. But Skyler contracted an extraterrestrial bug during his summer vacation. After just one night together, Sara discovers she's nine months pregnant. Desperate to keep her condition on the DL, she turns to the only person she can trust: her nerdy ex-bestie, Hayley (Elyse). The girls soon realize this alien problem is only just the beginning. Aliens had best beware. Based on the "Snatchers" new media series, an official selection at Sundance 2017. (Gary Reber)

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® and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is vibrant with a nicely saturated color palette. Primaries are strong and the imagery throughout is rich and warm. Everything looks natural but boldly colorful. Fleshtones are naturally hued and healthy looking. Contrast is excellent with deep black levels, revealing shadow delineation and excellent spot lighting and highlights. Resolution is excellent as well with fine detail evident throughout. This is an excellent-looking picture with a lot of funny scenes. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is exciting and very dynamic with an active orchestral score with an aggressive soundfield presence that envelops. Sound effects are aggressive with energized and powerful transient attacks supported with tight, deep bass extension, at times to sub-25 Hz in the .1 LFE channel. Sound effects are directionalized with powerful surround accents. Atmospherics are nicely supported. Dialogue is intelligible throughout with good spatial integration. This is a well-crafted and holosonically®-fun soundtrack that is entertaining throughout. (Gary Reber)
