After the death of her boyfriend, vulnerable mother-to-be Charlotte (TAMARA LAWRENCE) is taken in by her deceased partner’s mother, Margaret (FIONA SHAW) and stepbrother, Thomas (Jack Lawson). But Charlotte’s source of comfort soon turns to terror as her benefactors begin to appear increasingly obsessed with her every move. Plagued by mysterious hallucinations, Charlotte finds her suspicions raging with questions about Margaret and Thomas’s intentions for her unborn child.



This release comes with a matted slip cover and the inside sleeve is reversible. Features are a little limited, however there is an Audio Commentary by Director Joe Marcantonio and the Trailer.


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Shout Factory releases Kindred onto Blu-ray presented with a 2.39 widescreen aspect ratio and for the most part looks good, detail is sharp throughout while colors are tamped down in keeping with the darker tone of the story.

The disc includes a standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 which is serviceable, dialogue comes across with clarity and there is some decent depth. Nothing amazing but still more than satisfactory for a movie that is filled with plenty of quiet moments or dialogue.
