The Resident Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

For all its irredeemable awfulness as a thriller, The Resident actually looks quite good on Blu-ray, thanks largely to Guillermo Navarro's moody cinematography. The film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer seems faithful to its 35mm source material, with a thin-but-rich veneer of cinematic grain—no DNR abuses here—and no noticeable evidence of edge enhancement. There are momentary hiccups in clarity—these seem more like a focusing/lens issue than a transfer problem—but most of the film is crisp and well-defined, with strong detail visible in key areas, like the actors' faces and clothing. Color is both bleak and vibrant, with a palette defined by coppery skin tones, rich neutral hues, and occasional splashes of brightness, like red wine from a shattered glass or the robin's egg blues of Juliet's O.R. scrubs. There's one scene where both Juliet and Max are wearing white shirts, and I was impressed by how the highlights seem creamy rather than overblown. Black levels are more than sufficiently deep, and although detail is often lost in deep, crushing shadows, this is an essential, intentional part of the film's high contrast aesthetic. Finally, I didn't spot any overt compression or encode irregularities. Overall, a high rent transfer for a low rent film.


The Resident Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I could say the same for The Resident's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which is more interesting and involving than the film's story ever is. There are even moments when the mix seems perhaps too active. This is apparent from the very first frames, as a pounding, histrionic score plays over the title sequence, the music as bombastic and loud as possible. It sounds great—rich and forceful—but it is melodramatic to a fault. The film does make excellent use of the surround channels, however. Nearly every scene features some kind of mood-establishing ambience—New York City street clamor, subway cars rattling through the rears, rapid chatter and clattering instruments in the E.R., dripping water in some subterranean cellar—and there are countless directional effects, from impressionistically disembodied voices in the surrounds to frequent bump-in-the- night noises. Periodically, the LFE channel underscores the over-the-top dread with a throbbing low-end hum. Within all this aural action, dialogue remains rooted and intelligible, sounding full and acoustically accurate. For that that need or want them, English SDH and Spanish subtitle tracks are available in easy to read lettering.
