The Possession of Hannah Grace appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.39:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. This turned into a perfectly positive presentation.
Sharpness became a solid element, as the movie displayed positive clarity. The occasional slightly soft wide shots materialized, but the majority of the flick appeared well-defined.
No issues with jagged edges or moiré effects popped up, and I saw no edge haloes. Print flaws remained absent.
Color worked fine. The movie went with a chilly blue palette most of the time, and the hues seemed well-rendered within those choices.
Blacks were dark, and low-light shots – of which we found many - offered appealing clarity. This became a more than adequate image.
As for the DTS-HD MA 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.
How did the Blu-ray compare to the DVD version? Both came with similar soundscapes, but the lossless DTS-HD MA mix felt warmer and richer.
Visuals brought the usual upgrade from SD-DVD to Blu-ray, as this disc looked better defined and smoother. Expect a nice step up in quality.
A few extras round out the package, and we get one deleted scene. “I Lied to You” runs 44 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, 36-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, 30 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, Patient Zero, The Intruder and The Girl in the Spider’s Web. 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 Blu-ray offers good visuals and audio as well as a smattering of minor supplements. Hannah remains watchable but doesn’t become memorable.
