  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Se7en meets Silence Of The Lambs. Or so the box says on the cover of H. But don

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture exhibits a generally pleasing quality. The picture offers satisfying sharpness and detail, and the white English subtitles are crisp and clean. Sometimes images look a bit smeared. The picture can be dark, but blacks seem to be just shy of true depth. Colors are generally well balanced, but also seem just slightly undersaturated. There are minor cases of stairstepping artifacts and occasional pixelization, as well as edge halos. (Suzanne Hodges)
