The Killing Floor - Gideon Raff - 2007


Recommended Posts

A literary agent moves into a penthouse apartment. Soon after the move, he receives crime scene photographs that seem to have taken place in his new apartment. Next he receives a series of stalker videotapes that document his every move.


Un bon petit thriller à twist à 1 petit Million de $ (mais qui a le bon goût de ne pas faire cheap), laissant présager du meilleur pour le remake de "Terror Train" par le même réalisateur. À noter une partition de qualité signée Michael Wandmacher, déjà auteur de celle très efficace de "Cry Wolf".



This DVD release has a 16:9 anamorphic widescreen presentation 1.85:1 that looks fine, though not outstanding. City scenes show nice detail and are the visual highlights of the film.


The Killing Floor has two audio track versions: 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround and Dolby Stereo 2.0. I listened to the 5.1 track and found its mix to be distractingly inconsistent. Dialogue-only scenes were very light while the top-heavy, overbearing score was loud. At several points while watching the film, I turned up the volume for dialogue only to turn it back down again when the music subsequently thundered in.

Subtitles are available in English and Spanish.


The only extras on the disc are trailers for Ron Howard Presents In the Shadow of the Moon, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, Poor Boy's Game, Bordertown, and Deceit. They automatically play when the disc is put in your player, and they're also accessible through a "Trailer Gallery" option in the menu. The trailer for The Killing Floor itself is available separately in the disc's special features.
