The Strangers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Strangers visit Blu-ray in a 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Most of the visuals throughout the film offer a mixture of shadows and poorly lit locations that are drenched in a soft golden, amber, or red hue. The color brightens up in a few flashbacks scenes of the wedding the characters attended in the early moments of the film. Here, colors pick up a bit though flesh tones appear pale but seemingly accurate. Detail is moderate throughout the film. There is a slight softness to much of the transfer. Take a scene after James has left to get the cigarettes and Kristen is left to wander the house. For all the trinkets and furniture, none of it stands out as particularly strong, and the image lacks realistic depth. The soft lighting clearly plays a part in this, and the disc seems to resolve the detail as best it can, given the lighting conditions and inherently straightforward style of filmmaking that does make the movie feel more intimate and immediately dangerous. Blacks appear crushed in certain scenes, but deep and accurate in others, and in some scenes, the blacks take on a hint of gray. The Strangers offers viewers a solid transfer, one that suits the dim, demoralizing look of the picture well.


The Strangers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Strangers invades Blu-ray with a well-mixed DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The sound is bass-heavy to add a palpable sense of foreboding to the beginning of the movie. It is extremely effective, and, along with the baritone voiceover, the film effectively signals the coming of something terrible. The music, at times, plays quietly in the corners of the soundtrack, almost as if it is forcibly hidden away, again a means of adding to the creepy atmosphere of the film. The track does well to create minor ambience in the early scenes, for example reproducing the sound of crickets chirping outside the house that sound as natural as if they were outside your own home on a sticky summer's night. The first knock on the door emanates from the rear channel. It becomes a loud, power-packed series of thuds that are just one more in what has been a string of sonic clues to set the mood for the film. A smoke alarm that goes off in chapter six sounds as real as it gets, that annoying high-pitched screech that is so effective in doing its job. A car crash in chapter 10 is loud but clean, the smashing and crushing of metal on metal a powerful moment in the film as each speaker practically throws shattered glass and twisted fenders into the living room. Surrounds are used prominently throughout the entire movie, and the film features a nearly nonstop barrage of the sounds of violence and terror played with pinpoint precision. From the slightest whisper to the loudest cry for help, from the most subtle nuance to the most violent crashes heard throughout the film, The Strangers relies as much on its soundtrack as it does its visuals to convey the terror of the film, and the Blu-ray does not disappoint in the least.
