American Horror Story: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

One of the increasingly few television shows to be shot on film—the Super 35 system, in particular—American Horror Story has a visual aesthetic that's grittier than comparatively glossy, digitally-shot TV series. This works well with the show's tone and setting—particularly during flashbacks to the house's previous inhabitants—but be aware that the film stock is quite grainy, especially during the darker scenes. Thankfully, though, there's been no attempt to smear away any of this in post, which would be much worse. On Blu-ray, each episode has been given a 1080p/AVC encode, and the results—as you'd expect—are a hair better than cable broadcast quality, with fewer compression concerns and motion artifacts. If you're standing right next to your screen you may still spot some noise mixed amid the chunky grain, but never from a normal viewing distance. There's definitely no noticeable banding or macroblocking. Clarity is constrained somewhat by the nature of the spherical Super 35 format—along with the lenses and film stocks used—but the high definition presentation does yield far more fine detail than available on DVD. If a little soft around the edges, the image at least looks faithful to source. Color-wise, the picture is plenty dense, with strong saturation in the occasional vivid hues—blood reds, say—and tight contrast. If shadows are a bit oppressive, it's by intent. This show is all about the oppressiveness of the dark.


American Horror Story: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Things go bump in the night—and often during the day as well—with American Horror Story's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound presentation. You shouldn't expect theatrical horror movie levels of immersion and engagement, but for a television series, the show certainly builds up some creeping aural dread when necessary. While the front channels get the most play during typical domestic scenes, the more overt "scare" sequences bring the entire soundfield to life with cackling laughs or jittering movements or any number of other spooky sounds. What really makes it, though, is the show's fantastic use of music. Of course, there's the terrifying opening theme song—with its slowed-down chainsaw samples, water drips, and swelling bass—but the uneasy minor-key orchestral cues that drift in and out of each episode are effectively mood altering as well. And then there's the song "Tonight You Belong To Me," by 1950s sister duo Patience and Prudence, which is subverted into something dark and sinister within the context of the show. The music, the effects, the dialogue—everything sounds as clean and clear and well-balanced as required. The discs include optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
