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 and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture plays on darkness and light with Larry hidden in darkness and Oliver's mother in scenes with lights switching on and off. Contrast is, all things considered, natural. Black levels are deep and solid. Shadows are revealing. Lighting effects are effective and create the atmospherics for terror. Color fidelity exhibits natural hues under the varying lighting conditions with good saturation in well-lit interior scenes. Fleshones are natural. Resolution is generally good, especially during close-ups. This is an effectively spooky picture that delivers the frights. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is driven by a haunting orchestral score that is aggressive in surround envelopment, which really energizes the soundfield. Sound effects enhance the terror. Foley sound effects are precise. Atmospherics are generally subdued, Deep bass is powerful with extension to sub-25 Hz. Dialogue is intelligible throughout with good spatial integration. Larry's sounds are intelligible. This is a well-crafted and nuanced soundtrack that delivers the spooks. (Gary Reber)
