Sinister Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sinister is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films and Summit Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. Regular readers of my reviews know I'm not an especially rabid fan of films digitally shot with HD cameras, not really liking their often flat and textureless appearance, but I have to say as far as these films go, Sinister looks largely spectacular. Even director Scott Derrickson takes HD cameras to task for looking too much like video and not enough like film in one of the two commentary tracks included on this Blu-ray, but his work here with DP Christopher Norr utilizing the Arri Alexa pops extremely well despite the film's overall very dark environments. Close-ups reveal abundant fine detail and colors, while intentionally muted, look very accurate (Derrickson also talks about his own personal "obsession" with color on his directorial commentary track). The high definition presentation occasionally falters in terms of shadow detail in the darkest elements, but that in fact only helps to achieve a scary mood.


Sinister Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sinister features an extremely effective and moody loss DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track that ably supports the film's growing sense of foreboding and dread. Some of this is due to pretty standard audio tricks like rumbling LFE to up the listener's anxiety (even when there's nothing particularly disturbing happening on screen), as well as Christopher Young's dissonant underscore. But there are some amazingly nuanced sound effects consistently utilized throughout the film. Listen, for example, during the sequence where a car is set on fire to the very subtle burst of minimal LFE as the blaze starts. It's incredibly effective because it's so understated. Fidelity is top notch, presenting dialogue, effects and score cleanly, clearly and extremely well prioritized. Surround activity is also very well rendered, with regular use of side and rear channels. Dynamic range is quite wide, but does tend to utilized gimmicks like sudden overpowering LFE to aurally shock the audience.
