Running Time: 
96 minutes

The Disappearance of Alice Creed probably flew under your radar when it was released earlier this year. A chilling tale of kidnapping, betrayal, and greed, the film explores the kidnapping of a rich businessman's daughter, Alice Creed. For the full details, check out my review of the theatrical version.

The visuals are sharp and defined. There are no dramatic special effects used so what you see is what you get. Everything is presented in clear 1080p quality and it looks fantastic. Where the Blu-ray really shines is the audio. With TrueHD 5.1 surround sound, you hear every bloodcurdling scream and every gunshot. The film itself has many moments where there isn't any audio at all and I think this works well for it. It simply makes every little noise you hear all the more dramatic.

Audio Commentary with Writer/Director J Blakeson, "Phones" Deleted Scene, "Alice Gets The Gun" Extended Scene, Outtakes, Storyboard Comparison, and Trailer.

I was surprised at how many bonus features were included. Usually it's just some commentary and "making of" feature. They aren't the most interesting features around but they do provide more details into the film for those interested.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed remains the twisted thriller I saw months ago and is definitely worth picking up on Blu-ray if you haven't seen it yet, especially since you could probably find it for a low price.
