Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

 (2010)

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Introverted Sally Hurst has just moved in with her father Alex and his girlfriend Kim when she realizes that their sprawling estate holds its fair share of secrets. Ascending to the depths of the house, Sally gains access to a secret lower level that has lain undisturbed for nearly a century, when the original builder vanished without a trace. When Sally accidentally opens the gateway that kept the creatures locked up tight, she realizes that in order to prevent them from destroying her family is to convince her skeptical father than monsters really exist.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark features another upper-tier Blu-ray transfer from Sony. The movie oftentimes finds itself in low light and dark places, from the terrifying murder scene at film's start all the way to its climax. The transfer handles the darkness rather well; blacks rarely even hint at crush. They remain naturally deep and true, while offering fine shadow detail save for the very darkest few moments. Brighter scenes reveal fantastic colors. The palette is vibrant when colorful clothing is on display, and it's equally effective in the very warm, comforting wooden and lower-light interiors within the house. Fine detail is fantastic. Sally's heavy winter cap as seen upon her Rhode Island arrival is faultlessly textured. The droplets of water lying on the shiny black BMW look authentic. The house's natural vegetation is crisp and well-defined. Its brick exterior is marvelous, and its intricate wooden interiors are faultless. The dusty basement and rusted grate offer up a palpable texture. A light but critical grain structure only keeps the details sharp and true, while also providing a pleasant film-like texture. Banding, blocking, and other eyesores are absent. This is a pristine transfer from the top down, marred only by a few blacks that come in just a hair on the heavy side.


Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack lives up to that "master" title. The track is awash in discrete elements and immersive ambience. Scratching, scattering creatures often maneuver seamlessly about the listening area. Creepy chants and dialogue float with unmatched ease across the soundstage, all while retaining pinpoint accuracy and impeccable clarity. Some of the deeper, scarier elements come from a heavy low end that's tight and strong, but that unravels at the very bottom and produces only rattly vibrations. Music enjoys very good clarity and front-speaker spacing. The surrounds mostly carry those creature effects and some minor environmental ambience. Dialogue is clear and robust as it flows almost exclusively from the center channel. This is an active, involved soundtrack that will greatly satisfy listeners craving a completely immersive, surround-heavy audio presentation.
