Jacob

 (2011)

Jacob Blu-ray features mediocre video and audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

A Southern Gothic slasher in the tradition of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jacob is a chilling portrait of a hulking, troubled child who seeks vengeance against those who destroyed his family.

For more about Jacob and the Jacob Blu-ray release, see Jacob Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Michael Biehn, James Hampton, Krystn Caldwell, Larry Wade Carrell
Director: Larry Wade Carrell

Jacob Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

I wasn't able to find any specifics online, but watching the behind-the-scenes footage, it looks like Jacob was shot using a small Canon DSLR— maybe the 7D?—and a slightly larger HD video camera. The fact that a feature film can now be made with these relatively inexpensive tools is fantastic, but the picture quality just doesn't compare to, say, the Arri Alexa, or the Red camera, or 35mm. The movie's 1080p/AVC encode—framed to 2.35:1— displays many of the issues you often see with lower-level digital cameras. Aliasing and moire frequently affect tight parallel lines and patters. Banding and serious macroblocking are often noticeable, particular in out-of-focus backgrounds. Noise goes from completely absent in bright daylight scenes— giving the image a plasticky, texture-less sheen—to harsh and buzzing during the darker exteriors. Considering the type of equipment on which the movie was shot, most of this is unavoidable. While the overall level of clarity is decidedly soft, particularly in wider shots, closeups do at least reveal some fine facial and clothing detail. Color has been somewhat aggressively graded, typically resulting in a yellowish cast—sometimes with a strange green tint in the shadows—but I don't doubt Kino-Lorber's Blu-ray is entirely true to source. This is one of those it is what it is encodes.


Jacob Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The disc includes two audio options, the default lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and a 2.0 stereo fold-down. Do yourself a favor and immediately switch over to the functional stereo mix before you start the movie. Why? Because the multi-channel track is really poorly designed. The most aurally offensive aspect of the mix is that the dialogue emerges near equally from all of the main speakers, not just the front channels. So, when you're watching a scene and a character is in front of you on the screen, you inexplicable hear his or her voice in the space behind your head. This isn't just a rare occurrence; it's like this for the entire film. It's disorienting and distracting, so much so that it's not worth describing the rest of the 5.1 mix in detail. Go with the 2.0 track, so you at least get a fairly balanced, listenable presentation. It's obvious that a lot of the audio was added in post—even a lot of the lines sound dubbed—but again, it is what it is. The highlight here is the spooky score from Iain Kelso, which belongs in a better film. Do note that there are no subtitle options.
