  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Five years after her young daughter was found brutally murdered, Claudia (Vilarasau) is still finding it difficult to move on with her life. Then out of the blue one day, Claudia receives a phone call from someone claiming to be her dead daughter. Claudia isn't sure if it's the truth or if someone's just playing sick games with her but one thing's for sure, she intends to find out."The Nameless" is based on the novel by Ransey Campbell. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture exhibits imagery that can be soft, almost creating a fuzzy environment, like a fog of grief felt by the characters. Other times, details and textures are quite satisfying. Colors are nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and generally deep blacks. There is no obtrusive edge enhancement or pixelization that is terribly distracting from the visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
