The Messengers

 (2007)

The Messengers Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The Solomon family has left the fast paced life of Chicago for the secluded world of a North Dakota farm. Amidst the tranquil sway of the farm's field of sunflowers, Jess, 16, soon realizes how terrifying seclusion can be when she and her brother Ben, 3, begin seeing ominous apparitions invisible to everyone else. When those specters become violent, Jess' sanity is questioned a double jeopardy for the tormented teen. Her troublesome past comes face to face with the past of those who once lived in the house, a perilous confrontation that leaves her believability in question with those she desperately tries to warn before it is too late.

The Messengers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Messengers creeps onto Blu-ray with a wonderfully film-like 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The film opens with a brief yet crucial black-and-white segment that's nicely rendered and well-defined, and save for a bit of banding, it makes for a solid visual introduction to the film. The remainder is presented in color; the image is consistently crisp, strongly detailed, abundantly colorful when need be, and the interior of the house is appropriately dreary, shadowy, and chilling. Hardwood planks appear wonderfully textured, and accumulated crud in between each one appears as if its been there for years, all the lint, dust, pebbles, and everything in between them appearing lifelike down to the most minute detail. Likewise, facial detail is generally extraordinary in close-up shots, the transfer revealing every pore, bump, and stubble of facial hair with a brilliant real-world appearance. Distance shots of the exterior of the farmhouse remain sharp and detailed across the entire frame. The greenery in said shots makes for the strongest colors to be seen in the film, though several outdoor shots as seen during the characters' several jaunts into town are strongly realized, too, with more in the way of additional natural colors. Black levels are strongly rendered throughout, though detail seems lost within their shadowy confines in several scenes. Flesh tones waver between a neutral shade and a slight orange tint. The print is in generally pristine condition, save for a handful of white speckles that randomly appear over a couple of random shots. Film grain is visible but not persistently so; a thin layer that allows fine detail to remain intact is handsomely preserved over the entirety of the film. All said, The Messengers makes for yet another attractive and film-like transfer from Sony; its several flaws are minor and hardly worthy of more than a cursory mention and minor downward adjustment of the score.


The Messengers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Messengers crawls onto Blu-ray with an aggressive PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack that heightens the film's use of jump scare tactics considerably. Though not immediately evident, the track ultimately engages the aural senses with a full-blown surround sound extravaganza that practically plants the listener in the midst of the sunflower fields or in the creepy confines of the dusty old farmhouse, the first such assault on the ears coming in chapter eight. Tight, rumbling bass accompanies many of the more demanding and vigorous moments, and it's enough to positively but not distractingly rattle the seat. Never is the bass or often accompanying surround effects forced or overly pronounced; The Messengers features a balanced and satisfying soundtrack, and the uncompressed presentation handles everything thrown at it with ease. Many of the "scarier" scenes create a seamless 360-degree sound field that's used to full effect; they deliver an experience that's nothing short of sonic insanity, a mesmerizing cacophony of sounds swooping about the listening area and recreating the locales and sound effects with precision. Strong dialogue reproduction rounds out a superb uncompressed presentation.
