Story Synopsis:
Assaulting you before

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits image quality that is pleasing in all aspects. Colors effectively enhance the appearance of the cold surrounding and thrilling content of the film. Some interior scenes appear slightly smeared. Occasional instances of edge enhancement and pixelization are noticed, but overall, the picture will surely please. (Suzanne Hodges)

The Dolby(r) Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack is very well-produced, featuring fine fidelity and a spacious presence that is atmospheric and engrossing. The dialogue features voices that sound natural, with convincing spatial integration. The narrative is an excellent production, presented at a comfortable listening level. The split surrounds convincingly impart a sense of both ambience and involvement, occasionally heightening the visceral intensity. Similarly, the music effectively conveys the emotional momentum, and is well-recorded. Bass is deep with rumbles that are sometimes intense to below 25Hz in all channels.
