Killer Joe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Killer Joe is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The original stage version of the film took place entirely within the confines of the family trailer, and the bulk of this film still is set in the often shadowy environment of a dowdy mobile home, to varying results. While close-ups feature excellent fine detail and nicely saturated color, a lot of the midrange shots in these interior settings are rather soft looking, lacking in really definitive contrast and offering less than fulsome color. Friedkin and Letts have made the perhaps questionable choice of significantly opening up the original play, though, with several sequences taking place out of doors, and those really pop with excellent clarity and sharpness, even if they deplete the claustrophobic momentum of Letts' original conception.


Killer Joe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Do you want to know how you can tell when you're listening to an exceptionally vivid lossless surround audio mix? When you pause the film for a moment, wondering if that sound of a close by helicopter panning overhead is part of the soundtrack or actually happening outside your home theater room. That actually happened to me as I listened to Killer Joe's excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, in an early scene when Joe and Dottie are getting to know each other in the trailer and suddenly there's the distinct sound of a whirling helicopter blade clearly panning through the soundfield. There are several other standout moments in Killer Joe, including a couple of really explosive bursts of LFE, but the one issue that audiophiles may have with this track is that they are indeed moments, a second or two here or there where suddenly the surround tracks are completely alive with immersive qualities. The bulk of the film is taken up in much quieter, narrower dialogue sequences, something that obviously suits the quality of the film very well but which may disappoint those who want total immersion all of the time. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is extremely wide.
