Sadako 3D

 (2012)

Sadako 3D Blu-ray despite great video and superb audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

A mysterious, white-clad man is seen dropping a long-haired woman into a well. The well is full of women, all with long hair, all dressed in night-dresses. Thirteen years after the original film, two mysterious suicides- one at a bus station, and the other involving a schoolgirl prompt Detective Koiso and his partner to investigate a string of mysterious deaths. The deaths involve video played on devices, with a voice saying "You're not the one", just before the deaths.

Sadako 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sadako 3D is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with both AVC (2D) and MVC (3D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.78:1. As readers of my reviews may know, I'm often on record of stating how relatively flat and textureless some digitally shot features are, and that's rather ironically the case with this Red One lensed feature. While the image is as clear and well defined as the best HD native material usually is, there's a really surprising lack of depth to this offering, at least in its 2D rendering. Colors have been graded rather aggressively, with a kind of blanched look that robs the film of vividness. There are also a couple of sequences that seem to be littered with noise, though I'm frankly not sure if perhaps this effect was added in post to somehow delineate the "real" world from the virtual one. The fact that the film is so unclear on so many levels that even this seemingly cut and dried issue can't be discerned is perhaps another indication of how confusing Sadako 3D can be.

The 3D experience here is generally fine, if awfully dependent on some fairly silly and trite effects. Over and over, Sadako's hand or other elements (like her hair—yes, her hair) penetrate straight out toward the viewer. Later, after Akane's telekinesis is revealed and she begin shattering various computer monitors, shards of glass fly straight at the viewer. Aside from these effects, however, things are rather surprisingly restrained. Even an opening sequence which is shot from the perspective of the bottom of the well where Sadako "resides" is weirdly lacking in depth. Generally the film tends to utilize well worn 3D tropes like an out of focus foreground object providing a sense of depth while a scene plays out in the background.


Sadako 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

From a purely technical perspective, by far the best thing about Sadako 3D is its extremely lively and boisterous lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track (in Japanese). This is a film that isn't, to use Spinal Tap parlance, merely turned "up to 11", it's pushed fairly well toward the "12" range. Effects burst almost nonstop through the surround channels, and the film is awash in lots of LFE, some of it frankly stupid (the aforementioned jump cut revealing— gasp—a girl in a hall), but some quite effective (as in the finale's longish chase scene). Fidelity is excellent, with dialogue and effects all presented with crystalline clarity. Even though the film tends to wallow in hyperbole (including pretty loud volume a lot of the time), dynamic range is surprisingly wide.
