DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1-framed DVD looks horrifyingly fantastic, especially in the darker scenes! Colors are richly saturated and perfectly contrasted to the deep, endless blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation that allows for just enough visual information in the suspenseful dark scenes. The picture is slick and clean, with only minor pixelization and some edge enhancement in the brighter scenes to distract. (Suzanne Hodges) The disc also includes a modified 1.33:1 (4:3) version -- not reviewed.
