In "Save Yourselves!," a young Brooklyn couple (Mani and Reynolds) heads to an upstate cabin to unplug from their phones and reconnect with each other. Blissfully unaware of their surroundings, they are left to their own devices as the planet falls under attack. (Gary Reber)

Special features include commentary with Director/Writer Alex Huston Fischer and Director/Writer Eleanor Wilson, six deleted and extended scenes (HD 07:31), a blooper reel (HD 05:50), upfront previews and a Movies Anywhere digital code.

The 1.85:1 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 with Arri and Panavision cameras and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. This is a very natural-looking picture with excellent color fidelity and resolution. Colors are perfectly natural throughout, whether in interiors in the cabin or outdoors in the surrounding forested area. Hues are nicely saturated yet realistic. Nothing is exaggerated. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is excellent with revealing shadow delineation and natural black levels. White levels are satisfying as well. Resolution is excellent. Fine detail is exhibited throughout in object textures, clothing and facial features. This is a beautifully crafted picture with natural imagery throughout. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused and intelligible, though, quite forward in spatially. Atmospherics are natural, especially in the forested areas. Sound effects are precise and realistic. The music score spans the soundfield with an enveloping surround field. Deep bass is present is segments of the music and at times to enhance the sound effects. This is an unusually creative dialogue movie that is compelling. (Gary Reber)
