The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is dynamic with numerous nuance sonics.The orchestral score is presented with a wide soundstage that extends aggressively to the surrounds. Surround directionality is often present as subtle but effective sonics. Atmospherics enhance the realism of the settings. Sound effects are effectively horrific. Deep bass extends to sub-25 Hz for powerful effects support. This is a well-crafted thriller soundtrack with excellent dynamic holosonic® elements. (Gary Reber)
