The Triple Feature set is an okay release from Mill Creek and although I don’t like that no features were ported over from previous studio releases, as budget titles go, it’s worth picking up if only to get two out of the three in high-definition for the first time.

THE MOVIES


Wind Chill (2007) — 3.75/5
Desperate to get home for Christmas, a college student (EMILY BLUNT) catches a ride with a strange classmate (ASHTON HOLMES)). As soon as she realizes he knows a little too much about her, the stranger decides to take a shortcut down a remote country road. Caught in a raging snowstorm, the young travelers are suddenly forced off the road by a mysterious car. Stranded, they soon realize the cold is the least of their worries.

Closure (2006) — 3.0/5
Driving back from a posh party at a country estate, Alice (GILLIAN ANDERSON) and Adam (DANNY DYER) find themselves brutally assaulted by a group of hunters. Physically and emotionally devastated by the attack, the tables suddenly turn when Alice and Adam discover the identity of their attackers. This time, it’s their turn to exact the ultimate revenge.

Perfect Stranger (2007) — 2.5/5
When her friend’s affair with married ad exec Harrison Hill (BRUCE WILLIS) ends in the woman’s murder, investigative reporter Rowena Price (HALLE BERRY) vows to bring the killer to justice. Suspecting Hill of the crime, she goes undercover by posing as two highly alluring women. Engaging in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, both Rowena and Hill begin to realize things may not be what they seem.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included.

 

VIDEO – 3.75/5


Wind Chill and Closure make their debuts on Blu-ray while Perfect Stranger was previously released on the format back in ’07. For the most part, these look decent enough in high-definition, colors are more on the darker side in keeping with the thriller genre but detail is sharp and I didn’t notice major instances of artifacting, aliasing or other significant flaws.

AUDIO – 3.0/5


Closure is the only film to come with a lossless track (PCM 2.0) while Wind Chill and Perfect Stranger are standard Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks. None of them are particularly noteworthy but effective enough especially considering all three films are generally dialogue-driven.

 

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, the Triple Feature set is an okay release from Mill Creek and although I don’t like that no features were ported over from previous studio releases, as budget titles go, it’s worth picking up if only to get two out of the three in high-definition for the first time.
