Sanatorium is the latest in a slew of found footage flicks and this one, while well made, doesn’t really offer anything new but might be worth a rental especially if this is a subgenre you’re interested in and enjoy. The video and audio transfers are both but unfortunately Lionsgate doesn’t include any bonus features.

PLOT SUMMARY

On New Year’s Eve in 1955, Richard Howell, a patient at the Hillcrest Sanatorium, went on a bloody rampage, killing three children before he hanged himself. 56 years later, the ghost hunters from the popular TV series “Ghost Trackers” prepare to spend the night at the sanatorium. They hope to capture paranormal activity for the entertainment of their show’s fans. Instead, they unleash a horrifying force of evil… hell-bent on their destruction.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

The only item included is a redemption code for the Digital Copy.

VIDEO – 3.75/5 | AUDIO – 3.75/5

Lionsgate releases Sanatorium with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio. For the most part, and considering the subgenre, the picture doesn’t look too bad with decent coloring and minor amount of aliasing and pixilation.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track offered up is nice providing for good dialogue levels and OK depth from the score and/or jump scares.

OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, Sanatorium is the latest in a slew of found footage flicks and this one, while well made, doesn’t really offer anything new but might be worth a rental especially if this is a subgenre you’re interested in and enjoy. The video and audio transfers are both but unfortunately Lionsgate doesn’t include any bonus features.
