A Bay of Blood Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A Bay of Blood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In terms of picture quality, this latest batch of Mario Bava titles is the greatest yet. Both Five Dolls for an August Moon and A Bay of Blood look spectacular in high definition, with the latter taking perhaps a slight edge in clarity and overall cleanliness. Bay of Blood's print has a few minor age-related issues—occasional white specks, two or three scenes with short-lived vertical scratches—but nothing even remotely bothersome. (And compared many of Kino and Redemption's recent Jean Rollin and Jess Franco releases, this film is practically spotless.) The 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer has clearly been treated with care. There are no compression problems, no excessive noise reduction or edge enhancement, no wonky, over-pushed colors; the picture has a natural, filmic look, with a visible grain pattern and a great sense of dimensionality. Next to older DVD releases and Arrow Video's U.K. Blu-ray, the image seems to have undergone some effective color balancing. Contrast is stable, saturation is just where it needs to be—the Arrow version, in particular, was woefully flat—and there are no blown-out highlights or overly crushed shadows. (Check out the included Italian cut in the bonus features, with it's much poorer transfer, to see how bad the film could've looked.) Sharpness is also immediately improved, with a level of detail unseen in the film's prior home video outings. Barring some hypothetical 4K reissue in a few years, this is probably the best A Bay of Blood will look for some time to come.


A Bay of Blood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's English version—the most widely distributed cut—is presented via a listenable uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track. With some mild hissing, pops and crackles, and dubbed dialogue that occasionally has a hollow, echoey quality, there are a few source related concerns here, though none rise to the level of distraction. (If you watch a lot of low-budget Italian cinema, there's nothing out of the ordinary here.) If a little thin in the high end, the mix has good projection and gets to rock out a bit with composer Stelvio Cipriani's score, which goes from groovy to creepy and beyond. For the one or two instances where visible text needs to be translated, there are hard-coded English subtitles, but otherwise, no optional subs are provided.
