The 2.35:1 widescreen anamorphic picture and Dolby Digital sound are crisp -- nearly perfect. (But like other Paramount discs, the sound defaults to Dolby 2.0; 5.1 can only be selected through the menu.) A French track is available in Dolby 5.1; Spanish and English subtitles are optional. The lone extra is a theatrical trailer -- which divulges most of the plot.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this is a serial killer/stalker thriller that is completely inappropriate for young viewers. The predatory villain Casanova stalks and abducts women, and, if they do not obey him, he kills them. There are many scary scenes of the villain chasing his prey or hurting them, and some bloody fights. Although there is little nudity or onscreen sex, there is the constant awareness that the villain's prime motive is sex and that he views women as his sexual property. Profanity is used in context and sparingly, but it is nonetheless strong. The characters drink lightly and there is no illegal drug use, except in the case of the villain using a prescription drug to make his victims easier to handle. Social issues are seldom addressed in a straightforward way, except in the case of an escaped victim who challenges the idea that she should be protected and kept out of a case that involves her. The cast is racially diverse, and women are presented as resourceful and strong people as well as victims.
