Audio commentary - (113mins) Tony Krantz and writer Erik Jendresen preside over proceedings. Both are highly knowledgeable and impart many in depth details of the film, the choice of scenes and what they were trying to portray. Truth be told they go into far too much detail and along with their rather non-descript voices, the whole thing becomes very monotonous all too quickly.
Surgical Exorcism - (5mins 25secs) Dr Falks' web cast of a live surgical exorcism in the mountains of Peru. It's a scene taken from the film that's meant to shock those that are into this type of thing. Needless to say I'm still not convinced by it all.
The Shebeen Josie - (9mins 47secs) A social worker meets the devil at a bar in Africa. A one on one interview scene lasting for nearly 10mins. It's overly long and was probably omitted simply because the length of it detracts from it's impact.
Music Video - (2mins 27secs) “Have no Fear” by actress and singer-songwriter Bird York. The music is the main score from the movie and is quite a haunting melody.
Trailers - (3mins 30secs) Two trailers from the Raw Feed stable - “Rest Stop” and “Believers”
If truth be told I found the movie hard going and monotonous. It's overly long at nearly two hours and much of the scenes are lengthy drawn out affairs. It may have been far better to have kept the storyline short and punchy with a more concise form of delivery. I feel that would have engaged with far more viewers and a wider audience. The blu-ray package is also bit of a let down. The extras are very limited and add little if any value to the disc. The sound-mix is a rather utilitarian offering and the video is plagued with grain. I'm afraid the sum of the parts do little to encourage you to part with your hard earned cash in order to add this one to your collection.
However, for all it's considerable faults I nevertheless feel that there will be those that may actually like this film. The horror towards the end is certainly gruesome and tries to give you your moneys worth but it all felt like far too little, far too late on in the film. Sublime didn't strike a chord with me and so I would definitely recommend a rental before you decide otherwise.
