Cold Creek Manor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cold Creek Manor was shot by Declan Quinn, the stylish cinematographer who photographed Leaving Las Vegas for director Figgis and has worked extensively with directors Mira Nair and Paul Weitz (including the upcoming Tina Fey comedy, Admission). Quinn is an expert at achieving the brooding, textured look that is the ideal complement to Figgis' style. Here, with a big studio budget at his disposal, Quinn also achieved a smooth, polished product, though not necessarily one that pops off the screen.

The image on Disney's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray shows finely resolved detail, black levels that accurately represent Quinn's and Figgis' suggestive use of shadows, both inside the Cold Creek Manor estate and in many thickly wooded exteriors, and rich but not overly saturated colors to convey the natural environment in which the Tilsons have now made their home. Although (or perhaps because) the film was completed photochemically rather than on a digital intermediate, proper densities were achieved in camera, and the film's grain pattern is fine and natural, even in darker scenes. There is nothing to suggest that any filtering or high-frequency roll-off has been performed, and no evidence of artificial sharpening. Nor did I observe any compression errors (although lately I have begun to notice a tendency by screenshot jockeys to zoom on a lossy still until the image begins to dissolve, then call it "macroblocking"). CCM is one of the better efforts I have seen from Disney on a catalog title to date. Whatever issues one might have with the film, there should be no complaints about its visual representation on Blu-ray.


Cold Creek Manor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Apart from the dialogue, which is always clear, the crucial component of CCM's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is the foreboding score that Figgis composed himself. As Figgis relates in his commentary, the score became a bone of contention with the studio, which found it too downbeat—an issue that Figgis addressed by the simple device of shifting portions from a minor to a major key. While the score brings the necessary elements that music typically supplies in a thriller, it also adds a distinctive note of melancholy, a wordless reminder that the Tilson family has unwittingly stepped into the final act of a multi-generational tragedy afflicting the Massies. The score doesn't forgive Dale Massie for his crimes, but it does provide him with an elegy.

As far as surround effects are concerned, Figgis appears to belong to the school of filmmaker that prefers to keep his viewer looking forward. The surrounds are used to provide a general sense of ambiance and expand the presence of the score, but discrete surround effects are not emphasized.
