In "Men, " Harper (Jessie Buckley), a young woman, retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside in the aftermath of a personal tragedy, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurette "Rebirth: The Making Of Men" (HD 24:02), upfront previews and a digital copy.

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 using the Phantom Flex4K and Sony CineAlta Venice camera systems and sourced from a 4K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is gorgeous and exhibits a rich and warm strongly saturated color palette. The greens of the English countryside are beautiful and expansive. The woods are naturally hued with the warm browns of trees and dirt. The interior of the country house is beautiful with rich red walls and varied natural colored furnishing. Flesh tones are perfectly natural. Contrast is superb with natural black levels, vivid shadows and perfect white levels. Resolution is excellent with realistic environments throughout, Much of the picture is stylized with fine detail exhibited throughout, Facial features are captured with fine detail, This is a beautifully graphic visual experience. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is rather frontal focus with a hauntingly beautiful orchestral and choral score that envelops the surrounds, Foley sound effects are perfectly synced and enhance the realism. Sound effects are realistic sounding as well. Dialogue sounds natural with good spatial integration. This is a well crafted holosonic® soundtrack that delivers excellent fidelity and realistic sonics. (Gary Reber)
