Tormented 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Tormented 3D is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with MVC (3D) and AVC (2D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.78:1. This film got quite a bit of press during its theatrical exhibition due to having been lensed by well known cinematographer Chris Doyle, but if I were Doyle, I wouldn't be releasing any scenes from this film on my audition reel, despite some decently immersive 3D effects. Digitally shot with underwhelming contrast and a really surprising softness, Tormented is maddeningly murky most of the time, with a milky white overlay bathing several scenes and robbing them of any fine detail. People (and ghosts and bunnies) simply fade into the background in darker scenes. The film exploits a number of intentionally shaded environments, so part of this was no doubt done on purpose, but this is a really unappealing looking high definition presentation quite a bit of the time. The film has been vigorously color graded in post, but sadly that means it's been desaturated a great deal of the time, something that adds to its hallucinatory qualities but which does nothing for its sharpness or fine detail.

The 3D experience is relatively quite a bit better, which frankly may not be saying much. From the first scene of kids walking through a schoolyard, we get a nice sense of depth and spatial information. Doyle and Shimizu have crafted several nice sequences here, including a big climactic moment that involves a spiral staircase (you vintage film nuts will no doubt catch the reference, especially since this film has a mute heroine) that offers some really well done immersion. There's also a very cool sequence in a 3D movie theater where the film "reaches out and touches" Daigo and Kiriko that is arguably the film's most impressive visual effect. But the entire 3D experience is hobbled by the overall softness and murkiness of the general presentation here.


Tormented 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Tormented 3D's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is everything the image quality isn't. Filled with fantastic startle effects, fulsome LFE and some great immersion, this track is about the only thing standing between Tormented and a future trek on something like Mystery Science Theater 3000. Discrete channelization is very smartly used for a variety of great sound effects (the "splat" when rock hits bunny head replete with over the listener's head panning being just the first of many fantastic foley effects). Kiriko's narration is always clear, and the film's minimal dialogue is also always easy to hear. Kenji Kawai's score is another standout, and uses the surround channels consistently. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is quite wide.
