The Possession of Hannah Grace appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.39:1 on this single-sided, double-layered DVD; the image has been enhanced for 16X9 televisions. The transfer held up acceptably well for SD-DVD.
Sharpness became one of the iffier elements, though it still seemed mostly satisfactory. The red opening credits looked awfully fuzzy, and wider shots tended toward moderate softness.
Those concerns didn’t become major, though, so most of the movie displayed fairly positive clarity given the limitations of SD-DVD. Lines tended to look ropy, and other instances of jaggies and shimmering appeared. Print flaws remained absent, but some light edge haloes crept into the image.
Other than those red credits, colors worked fine. The movie went with a chilly blue palette most of the time, and the hues seemed acceptable to good.
Blacks were fairly dark, and low-light shots offered reasonable clarity. Nothing here made me forget I was watching a DVD, but the image seemed watchable.
As for the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack of Hannah, it was good but not exceptional. Some of that stemmed from the movie’s emphasis on ambience over action theatrics.
Occasionally some involving material emerged and these sequences opened up the room in a satisfying way. They didn’t crop up with great frequency, though, so don’t expect a ton of active material. The track created a reasonable soundscape but nothing scintillating.
The quality of the audio was fine. Music showed nice range and definition, as the movie’s score worked well.
Effects appeared clear and natural, with strong low-end. Speech came across as distinctive and concise. In the end, this turned into a “B” soundtrack.
A few extras round out the package, and we get one deleted scene. “I Lied to You” runs 45 seconds and shows a chat between Megan and her ex-boyfriend. It provides no useful info we don’t get in the final flick.
Three featurettes follow, and The Killer Cast goes for six minutes, 31 seconds. It includes comments from producer Sean Robins, screenwriter Brian Sieve, executive producer Glenn Gainor, and actors Shay Mitchell, Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson and Nick Thune.
As implied by the title, “Killer” discusses the actors and their performances. Despite a few decent notes, not much substance appears here.
With An Autopsy of Hannah, we find a six-minute, 37-second reel with Johnson, Mitchell, and special effects/makeup department head Adrien Morot. “Autopsy” discusses various effects used for Hannah, and it gives us a brief but informative overview.
Megan’s Diaries take up one minute, 31 seconds and show promotional clips that focus on the lead character. They’re a decent way to sell the movie.
The disc opens with ads for Slender Man, Searching, Escape Room, The Intruder, The Girl In the Spider’s Web and Patient Zero. No trailer for Hannah appears here.
Because it brings some twists on the demonic genre, The Possession of Hannah Grace comes with a few surprises. However, it sticks with too many of the same old jump scares to offer anything truly innovative or terrifying. The DVD offers acceptable visuals, good audio and a smattering of minor supplements. Hannah remains watchable but doesn’t become memorable.
