This low-tech horror anthology delivers some high quality scares on Blu-ray...
Horror anthologies are tricky things to pull off, but this creepy collection of six shorts gets more right than wrong – and injects some new life into the 'found footage' genre in the process. Naturally, given the nature of the content (camcorder, VHS, etc) the issue of picture quality is fairly subjective – but from a technical standpoint it's hard to fault the disc's AVC 1.78:1 1080p encode for its faithfulness to the source material. Helping to raise the scare-quota is an atmospheric DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. Sadly the commentary from the US release is missing, but we still get a couple of interviews, an alternate ending for one short, and behind-the-scenes footage from another.
