The Awakening Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Awakening's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer has the distinct look of a BBC digital video production despite being shot in 35mm, which wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the noise that permeates the image. At times, it has the appearance of filmic grain. More often, though, it behaves erratically and to the detriment of fine detail. That said, it isn't a serious problem, and only distracts on occasion. Otherwise, all is as it should be. Almost every color, skintone and primary has been drained within an inch of life, yes, but the subsequent palette suits the tone and atmosphere of the film perfectly. Contrast is consistent and black levels are appropriately dusty and gloomy too, even if depth and delineation suffers somewhat. And overall detail? Edge definition is clean and satisfying on the whole (when specific stylistic decisions and inherent softness aren't at play), while fine textures and closeups are both refined and revealing. Moreover, significant artifacts, banding, aliasing and ringing are held at bay, and crush is the only minor eyesore that rises from its grave. Aside from the aforementioned noise, that is, which viewers would do well to anticipate going in.


The Awakening Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

No hesitation here. If The Awakening were being judged strictly on the effectiveness and immersiveness of its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, it would be one of the best haunted house films in years. Between the creaking and groaning of the school floorboards, the pitter patter of ghostly feet, the ringing of distant bells, the muffled howling of outside winds, the shuffling of a ghastly spirit, the voices bleeding through the walls and Daniel Pemberton's eerie genre score, Murphy certainly delivers on the sonic front. Rear speaker activity is just as delightfully and frightfully passive-aggressive as a good horror soundfield should be, every interior and exterior environment is disquietingly enveloping, and directional effects are stealthy, jarring and precise. LFE output is just as sinister, lulling listeners into a trance before shocking them out of their seats with terrifying power and presence. All the while, dialogue is clear, intelligible and nestled within the world Murphy has forged; the quietest whisper and the most startling scream subject to the same carefully -- strike that -- masterfully prioritized rules of engagement. The Awakening may not be a perfect horror movie, but its lossless track provides a perfect horror mix.
