Jeepers Creepers: Reborn appears in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The movie offered a pretty strong transfer.
Overall definition seemed positive. A smidgen of softness hit some wider shots, but most of the movie showed nice delineation.
I witnessed no issued with shimmering or jagged edges, and edge haloes remained absent. No print flaws cropped up along the way.
Like virtually all modern horror tales, Reborn opted for a stylized palette. It tended toward a low-key, semi-desaturated vibe that emphasized a chilly feel, with a mix of the usual teal and amber as well as occasional splashes of green and red at the festival. The hues worked fine for the material.
Blacks seemed dark, while shadows showed positive clarity most of the time, though a few interiors felt a little dim. This became a quality presentation.
Similar thoughts greeted the film’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. It went for a fairly atmospheric air, as the mix gave us logical accompaniment for the creepy visuals.
This meant music popped up around the room and became somewhat dominant while effects remained mostly in the environmental realm. Violent scenes used the five channels in an active manner, though, and those added pizzazz to the proceedings.
Audio quality was good. Dialogue appeared natural and concise, while music showed nice range and impact.
Effects boasted positive punch and dimensionality, with deep low-end when necessary. Though not a killer mix, the audio fit the story.
Two featurettes appear, and Behind the Creeps runs 10 minutes, 43 seconds. It brings notes from director Timo Vuorensola, production designer Sivo Gluck, and actors Sydney Craven, Imran Adams, Peter Brooke, Ocean Navarro, and Matt Barkley.
“Creeps” looks at the revival of the franchise, story/characters, cast and performances, sets and production design. A few decent notes emerge but most of the piece feels superficial.
Creeper Transformation spans 16 minutes, 37 seconds and offers comments from Creeper designer Lea James and key prosthetics Steven Harris/
We get a look at the Creeper creature design and execution. This turns into a pretty good view of the topic.
The disc opens with ads for Till Death, Monstrous and Black Friday. No trailer for Reborn appears here.
More than 20 years after the franchise debuted, Jeepers Creepers: Reborn offers a reboot. Nothing about it works, as the movie becomes a tedious collection of cheap tropes. The Blu-ray comes with good picture and sound as well as minor bonus features. This turns into a lame excuse at horror movie product.
