Fear Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation emerges from the Universal archives with some visible age, not quite up the HD standards we have today. Shadow detail is often murky, clouding evening sequences to a moderate degree, losing the subtleties of location and set design particulars, while contrast in a touch unsteady. There's some filtering in play here, diluting the presence of grain, also softening rigorous movement. Some mild haloing is detected. Colors are in fine shape, having the advantage of a gorgeously shot picture that utilizes the deep greens of northwestern woods, while Steven's blazingly red car makes a strong impact. Hues from costuming and neon lighting also remain stable and inviting. Skintones are natural, accentuating Nicole's virginal appeal and David's coldness. Detail is generally acceptable, making action within the frame easily surveyed, while close-ups capture the fresh feel of skin, highlighting satisfactory textures and emotional cues. Violence and gore shots also supply adequate punch.


Fear Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix is truly a showcase for the soundtrack selections, which carry a pronounced circular hold as the alternative hits of the 1990s feed into the surrounds with ease, featuring crisp instrumentation and a pleasingly heavy bass. Dialogue exchanges are a little less electric, sounding firm but unremarkable, keeping to a center position that isn't always as commanding as hoped for. Voices aren't missed, but sound is a little buried at times. Scoring is responsive without steamrolling over the performances, nicely balanced and implemented throughout. Atmospherics sustain a presence, with welcome sounds of lakefront property bringing the location to life, while violence is appropriately amplified, offering controlled chaos once the final siege begins, absent a true sense of directional movement. No distortion was detected.
