247°F Blu-ray Review

“247°F” doesn’t have enough plot for a feature length film.

Based on “true events,” “247°F” revolves around the characters Jenna, Ian, Michael and Renee as they travel to a cabin where they plan to relax and attend a nearby party. Their plans soon change when Ian, Jenna and Renee are accidentally trapped in the cabin’s steamy sauna. Will they be able to get out alive? Will someone finally find them?

It’s no secret that the horror genre has been struggling creatively for the past few years and it’s not hard to see why after watching the “trapped in a sauna” horror thriller “247°F.” To say the film lacks plot and tension is an understatement. This is an incredibly dull movie that is padded with scenes of people whining, complaining and airing their frustrations and troubles. There’s even a sort of anti-drinking/drug after school special/PSA angle to it for good measure.

Had “247°F”  been a short film, it might have worked, but as is, it’s a movie filled with wet, sweaty bodies heavily breathing in a sauna for an overlong period of time. Skip it.

Video/Audio:

The film, which is presented in 2.40:1 1080p, looks crystal clear in hi-def. You feel like you are in the sauna yourself.

The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio track is a little flat. However, this isn’t a very audio centric movie so the track doesn’t have a lot to do to begin with.

Extras include Anchor Bay film trailers, a little over 4 minutes worth of deleted scenes and a commentary by director/producer Levan Bakhia. Bakhia chats enthusiastically about everything from opening titles and location shooting to the dog and directorial decisions.
