Product Description

When Tom Anderson is visited by a deceased high school friend in a dream, she gives him only one warning. She tells him that the Four Horsemen (characters from his latest novel) are coming for him and his friends at noon. But once his friends get trapped in town with him, the battle for their future is about to begin. What they think is a dream is about to become a reality...and they are about to find out...the battle they must face has been inside of them all along. The first dream was a warning. Now, they have no choice but to face Tom's dream along with him...and survive. From writer/director Greg Augustine (The Bench, The Knights of Zodiac) comes a story about life, friendship, and revelation. Better the Devil You Know is a comedy/fantasy that will take you beyond imagination. TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION DVD INCLUDES: BEHIND-THE-SCENES DOCUMENTARY, DELETED/EXTENDED SCENES, AND ORIGINAL THEATRICAL TRAILER! OVER 90 MINUTES OF SPECIAL FEATURES ON 2 DISCS!

Review

In this ambitious indie fantasy-comedy, three childhood friends reunite when they crash and burn in their personal lives and are forced to move back to their hometown. After one is visited by a recently deceased high-school friend in a dream and warned that the Four Horsemen will soon be coming for him and his pals, the incredulous trio soon discovers that each of its personal demons are in fact about to appear in forms all to real -- and dangerous. If they hope to make it out alive, they will have to fight for their future. --All Movie Guide

...Augment Image's 1080p/MPEG-2 transfer isn't half bad, offering those who venture into the Devil's realm an entirely passable presentation. Yes, skintones range from chalky to oversaturated, contrast is terribly inconsistent, and director Greg Augustine and principal photography director Anthony Gagnon's palette is often washed away by untempered sunlight, but most of the transfer's shortcomings are the result of Augustine's limited resources rather than some glaring technical deficiency. Colors are relatively strong and stable, black levels are quite satisfying (dare I say rich and inky on occasion), and fine detailing is far more competent than I expected. Not only do textures tend to impress, object definition is crisp and clean on the whole, and background details are unfettered. Moreover, the image isn't prone to compression mishaps or encoding issues. Errant artifacts, minor aliasing, and bursts of noise do find their way into the presentation, but rarely amount to a major distraction. All things considered, the Blu-ray edition of Better the Devil You Know features a decidedly decent transfer. Low-budget eyesores and antiquated codec notwithstanding, no one will mistake it for a DVD. --Blu-Ray.com
