Otis: Uncut (Blu-ray)
SRP $28.95 2.35:1 DOLBY TrueHD 5.1 WARNER BROS
 

WARNER BROS has released "OTIS: UNCUT," a mediocre(at best) horror/comedy film, about "Otis," a pizza delivery guy night/sociopath-stalker/killer by day. He kidnaps pretty girls and then forces them into re-enacting weird alternative imagery from a high school past he never had. While the film tries to be a dark comedy, it fails miserably as it only achieves being disturbing, and there is not enough wit behind anything in the script or performances to achieve any semblance of humor. The acting is adequate, but Laurence Olivier couldn't make the mediocre lines sound good.  When the parents of a missing girl choose to exact their own kind of justice, what could've been something interesting, still fails miserably. Worse, the film becomes dull, and it's hard to sit through its short running time.

WARNER BROS. has provided the correct 2.35:1 aspect ratio for this 1080p/VC-1 blu-ray release. Originally shot on video, the image offers little clarity or depth. Even when it's not grainy, the lack of detail is annoying, making this one of the most flat-looking blu-ray releases of the year.

WARNER BROS. has provided a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix. While it's not anything spectacular, at least ambient effects are notable throughout and there's some minor separation in the front speakers, but little worthy of the Lossless specs.

No extras.
