The past and present collide in "Lady Of The Manor." When stoner-slacker Hannah (Melanie Lynskey) is hired to portray Lady Wadsworth (Judy Greer), a Southern belle who died in 1875, in a tour at Wadsworh Manor, Hannah, a hot mess, figures she can fake it—until the ghost of Lady Wadsworth appears. Lady Wadsworth tells Hannah it's time to change her wild ways—and she'll haunt her until she does. (Gary Reber)

Special features include commentary with Writers-Directors Christian Long and Justin Long, the featurette "A Fart-Warming Tale Of Friendship And Vengeance" (HD 10:50), outtakes (HD 04:48), eight deleted scenes (HD 17:01) and a digital code.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture appears very digital with inconsistent focus, mediocre color fidelity and saturation. Contrast exhibits deep blacks and natural white levels. Resolution is generally good and at times excellent, especially during closeups. Overall, the imagery is rather mundane. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with generally good spatial delineation. Music sounds compressed but surround envelopment is generally good. Atmospherics sound realistic, and sound effects sound discrete and generally dimensional. While acceptable, the soundtrack fails to possess impressive sonics. (Gary Reber)
